What a beautiful building filled with equally beautiful rooms.
Jackie greets you when you first arrive as if you've known each other for years. She is the heart and soul of this establishment. If you need anything Jackie is the one to contact.
The rooms as mentioned above are beautiful. The furnishing are gorgeous, no expense has been spared here. Two bathrooms do come in handy and both are lovely. The balcony is huge!
Now we get to housekeeping, a previous reviewer mentioned black feet. We being from Florida are barefooted quite a bit so we are use to dirty feet. There is difference between dirty feet and pitch black feet. The tile floors could use a good mopping especially in the corners. We were there for 3 nights and the last day there was a pink mildew ring around the water level in the toilet leading us to believe the toilets had not been clean while we were there. We were also shorted towels the last day.
My husband and I are avid readers but once the sun went down there wasn't enough light to read by if sitting in the chairs. The sofa had a lamp next to it. We bought a higher wattage light bulb to get more light but it really didn't help. If you have an e-reader bring a light.
The pool area is furnished with wooden slatted furniture. There were 2 lounges (only one had cushions) and 5 chairs (only 2 had cushions). It was extremely unconfortable to sit on the ones without cushions. The gym by the pool seemed clean and well equipped.
The beach by the hotel is not really usable but there are 2 other nice beaches with facilities a short car ride away.
Would we go back? Only if the price was right.
