    The staff are really delightful but it's the little things like grubby doors, spills on entrance floors that sat there for 2 days B4 someone finally cleaned it. Furniture needs to be updated. Has potential to be wonderful.

    We think the whole resort (room, restaurant, pool, spa, gym, lap pool and steam room) was well maintained and inviting to come again. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Ideal for adults and children.
