Watch out for checkout charges

Everything was fine until we checked out and found out that in addition to 16% taxes, the hotel also charged us 10% service charge and 2% "training" charge.

Nice place !

Very nice hotel, indeed ! Excellent service and wonderful buffet for breakfast. Diners could have been more tasty : Fountain Restaurant banks more on quantities than on quality but overall the food is ok. The swimming pool is a bit small for so many guests but we always succeeded in booking mattresses. The beach is nice too, not crowded, and the beach boys are not too intrusive.
