It is good that there are many kinds of restaurants around the hotel. However, products such as shampoo and soap are not good. I had to go to the front desk twice because the key didn't work.

property was on the top of a small hill, so with luggage it would have been hard. we visited the property prior to our reservation and took a taxi, if not we would have had a hard time with 3 suitcases

Nice place to stay with family. Close to many restaurants. The jacuzzi is located outside although the pool is indoor, which is not super convenient during cold weather.
