This hotel understands service! We were met by a bellman who handled our bags during the efficient check-in process. We headed to our room which had a lovely view of the cruise port. Because we are platinum we were offered our choice of amenities on check in and chose the wine and cheese which was delivered at our requested time of 5 pm. The young woman on the front desk was extremely welcoming, and friendly during our entire 2 day stay.
The pool area is amazing. I've stayed at a lot of hotels, but never seen the comfortable shaded round padded loungers for two that surround the pool and hot tub area. The hot tub itself was disappointing in that only one jet worked and it tended to collect leaf debris from the surrounding foliage. It needed maintenance and more frequent cleaning. The pool itself was great. Towels were readily available.
We ate both dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant and both meals were quite good. They have a breakfast buffet which includes custom omelets as well as some interesting variations of the standard scrambled eggs and potatoes ... along with breakfast meats and typical continental breakfast fare.
There is a Walgreen's drug store across the street that is handy for any last minute pre-cruise needs.
They do not provide airport transportation but cab fare is about $15. They do run a (for a fee) shuttle to the cruise port, but again, a taxi is a viable option since it is a very short ride.
We will look forward to staying here again!
