4/10 Fair

Pool not worth the pictures.
Very disappointed by how restrictive the use of the pool area was. Pictures show beautiful cabana areas but when you get there they are only for reservations and you can’t use them even if no one has been there for hours. Not conducive at all to lounging around with friends or family if more than a handful of people are there.

6/10 Good

Clean up your act
The computer system was down for check in had to wait almost 2 hours. The pool deck are was a complete mess all three days of our stay. At one visit i had to ask them to clean it because you could not find a place to sit with all the dirty dishes, food on the floor and used towels everywhere. Then they asked us to verify our reusable water bottles only had water in them. Could not have been more rude. This place needs management oversight.

8/10 Very good

Good service
Air con broke in the building on the first night of my stay, that were already working on it when I got up, but it was uncomfortable and hot in the room. Second night was great, service was great. Not the most upscale place, but I liked it’s style and charm.
