Great getaway!!

I had a great time on my vacation. The staff at this hotel were so helpful and nice! They pushed elevator button, brought pool towels to us, answered all questions with a smile....the phrase for the weekend was "a la orden" which means of course or whatever I can help you with. I was a bit spoiled while there. The room is a bit dated, but it was very big. It has a walk in closet, with safe, hangers, and iron. If you stay on the second floor, there are steps that lead straight to the pool. We did not get a food package, so we only ate in the hotel a couple nights, because it was a bit pricey. There are restaurants within walking distance from hotel, we even ordered dominoes one afternoon. Cubanisimo is one of the restaurants right outside the hotel. Great food,staff and prices. Great hotel, fabulous staff, and awesome price!!!

Staff very freindly and helpful. Beds were lumpy, but other than that it was okay. Room service was excellent and the wait was short. Breakfast buffet was awesome.
