We stayed at this property this past weekend. Overall, it was very nice.
We got two connecting rooms- a double and a king. The connecting point was in the sitting room- a very nice set up. It offered much more privacy over on the bedroom side. The "bedrooms" were not fully detached- there was a wall but no door, but the privacy was more than adequate for our group.
The sitting room has a small sofa and a chair, coffee table, a desk and desk chair, a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and a nice touch- a wet sink. The television was situated between the sitting room and the bedroom, and you could swivel it to face either side. It was a good-sized flat screen TV, but the picture wasn't the best. Maybe the cable connection was bad...
The bathroom was very nice- a great improvement over some of the closet sized bathroom some hotels offer. There was plenty of room to move around, and the sink and mirror were outside the bathroom, separate from the bathtub and toilet. This is great when you have more than one person trying to get ready at the same time.
One thing that I thought was odd- the double room had a full-sized ironing board, while the king had a little tabletop board...
The beds were comfortable, with decent linens and towels. The beds in the double were small- double, not queen- something to keep in mind if you need a larger bed.
The breakfast in the morning was typical and adequate. The breakfast attendant was VERY nice and quite helpful. She brought milk to the table when I could not fid it for my kids. We were leaving the hotel at the end of the meal period and she offered the leftover bananas to my little ones- they were too ripe to last another day, and it was a thoughtful gesture. At one point the dining area was quite crowded, but when we went down first thing, everything was fresh and fully stocked. Even during the busy time, it looked like everything was well-tended.
The pool was a little chilly for a "heated" pool, and while not filthy, it could have been cleaner. It sure didn't look as clean as it does in the pictures! It is small, but perfectly fine for letting the kids splash around and work off some energy. The spa tub, on the other hand... it wasn't even as warm as bath water, and had a lot of foam on top. On closer inspection, the foam looked pretty dirty. Ick.
The internet connection was SLOW SLOW SLOW... so slow it was nearly unusable.
Overall, we were quite pleased with our stay. We usually stay at a different property in the area, but I think we may switch over to this one, as it is quite nice and offers nice space.
