This hotel was grossly overpriced and awful. The service is terrible and they are more worried about their convenience than the client's. Would never go back and recommend not going. The breakfast sucks, the beds are old and the elevator is an old train.

Lots of trees, lush plants. Rooms great size, lots of wicker furniture, not for the robust. TV good, minibar stocked w/ soda and beer. Prices... More
