Accommodations were very roomy and comfortable. Everything was well furnished and useful. We were able to fix meals readily and did not need to go out to eat. Bedrooms were large enough to accommodate all of us.

Yes, we do offer pool towels. As a guest, you will find towels in your unit on top of the washer and dryer. If you need more just dial "0" or stop by the front desk. Have a wonderful weekend and we hope to see you soon.
