Very comfortable beds. Comfortable stay although I would say 3.5 star. Didn’t use dining or amenities. Only stayed one night. Would stay here again.

6/10 Good

Was a bit disappointed. All bedding was to soft , and room was very noisy. Apart from the lovely lady when we checked out, staff never acknowledged us as we were coming and going over four days with a greeting of any type. Most unusual!

Not worth the $$&&
Arrived early and lady seemed annoyed with me. I just said we were there and could they ring when available as we had a wedding. Room was average and paid excessive for it. Ocean views were included if they supplied binoculars
