It was a pleasant and beautiful stay at this hotel. People were very friendly. Hotel nice and clean.

Is pretty

the staff was rude and not helpful! my keycard didn't work had to have them fix it everyday of my stay! i paid for breakfast during my stay and they didn't honor it even though orbitz reps called AND e-mailed confirmation of breakfast! i called the front desk for utensils and they never showed up. we asked for the shuttle from the airport and first they said 4:30 then they said no so we waited and one showed up at 4:30 i will NEVER stay at this hotel again!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great view from our room.

Very nice hotel good property lovely pool and facilities. Only downside is it's not a walkable location to anything if that matters.

Staff helpful; waiter accomodating to our large (5) hungry party at 8 PM, having just arrived in country.. Rooms wonderful. Hotel property beautiful. Buffett breakfast safe (individual servings of fruit, breads..) and healthy

I missed the shuttle as my flight arrived very late, front desk was accomodating with the room options and even let me see the room before i took my stuff there.in the morning they helped me get my car rental ( the staff even told me about the scam insurances run and how to avoid having to pay extra before arranging for them to bring my car over) Food was good.... little breakfast buffet with american and authentic cuisine. Staff was nice and i loved the hammocks by the pool and they had a bar and nice little walking garden next to the pool area. Will deffinately stay again.

I liked the fact that it was big place big swimming pool very relaxing with a lot of plants and trees friendly people, the only thing I didn’t like it was that there are no stores or restaurants near by always had to use a taxi, but other than that we enjoyed.

Very well kept hotel

Poolside service was nice. Recommend purchasing with breakfast; it’s more expensive if you eat at the hotel restaurant out of pocket.

Great located hotel! We had a great time at swimming, too cold bu

The property, staff and amenities are all of the best quality and admirable. Please make a reservation without hesitation and enjoy!
