Service? Hello??
Service was terrible! We arrived from the airport hungry for dinner to be told the restaurant is closed as well as the bar. When we asked about any nearby restaurants that are good, we were told to use UberEats. Apparently, everything at the hotel is closed when it’s not peak season which we were not told ahead of time. Also, the front desk only works business hours and won’t answer the phone even then! When we approached the desk for checkout, we heard the phone ringing and ringing but the guy at the desk made no effort to answer, and was not serving any other customers either. It’s a large room with beautiful furnishings, but the bed is hard as a rock.
