Stayed here last month. Overall my wife and I were very impressed. The room was larger than we expected, with one bedroom and a pullout couch. It had a full kitchen, which made us regret that we didn't bring more food. Nice view from our balcony to the pool. Everything was very well maintained, and the staff was extremely helpful....
