Large room, but nothing fancy. My internet connection worked fine. I was there during a cold spell in January, so I didn't try the pool, but it looked clean, large, and inviting. The grounds are well landscaped and attractive, but very confusing to get around, particularly your first night there. Staff was all brand new and not trained at all: had to go to the front desk to get shampoo after the first night, and the front desk still had to call the manager who had to call housekeeping who later brought me shampoo. Poolside cafe has excellent made-to-order breakfasts including omelets and good coffee (if you have time to sit, order, and eat); Starbucks is a couple of blocks down the street. Also has coffee in room, along with apples, chocolates, and mini-fridge. Food at Trader Vic's restaurant next door was lousy, but they do have Guinness on tap. At checkout they tried to charge me more for my third night than the first two, even though all my reservation materials clearly showed the nightly rate. This resulted in my going home without a bill and, having still not received the promised copy a week later, having to call to get a faxed bill, although it had been adjusted to the correct amount.
