Couldn't get any attention from the staff behind the front desk on arrival so I phoned them and watched them answer as I asked how can I check in lol. Unbelievable noise from adjacent room. Room temperature was cold. I feel defrauded.

When we go we stay for 2 days or more. The pool is clean and the staff is great!! The food is excellent. We have looked at staying other places but have decided that there is nothing as nice as for its location and the property.

If the star rating was based purely on the hotel staff, I would give the hotel a 5 star rating. They are extremely helpful and friendly. I'm going to give my honest opinion though on the building itself: The hotel itself, rooms and breakfast are do not get a 5 star rating from

Well, everyone has their own preferences, but if your 12 year old (s) are mature and will stay in the room, I think it would be safe for them--while you go out for a walk. They could watch a movie and you could order in pizza for them. I felt very safe (a woman with two teens) at this hotel and area. You must use common sense, but I don't believe you have to be too concerned. There are many families that come to this hotel (at least the week we were there).
