At arrival our bathrooks weren’t so clean. One of them we found a bunch of hairs on the floor. The next day we went about our day and no one came to change out towels or clean the room. For the amount we paid for 2 nights it seems crazy to me . Property was beautiful don’t get me wrong but wish it would of been a better experience…
