We were so pleasantly surprised how nice, beautiful, modern and friendly this hotel was. Their indoor pool was warm and nicely decorated. The rooms were just gorgeous and the view from the large windows was par none. A VERY CLEAN AND WELL RUN PLACE.

The food was terrific and there was something...
