I tried getting to the property in my car on a Friday night, and could not even get there to drop off my family and luggage. There was no parking within a mile. Expedia literally allowed us to book a hotel we could not even get to.

This was perfect for our girls trip! There was a leak in the ceiling of the bathroom and a light was out in the bathroom. Other than that it was perfect! Be sure to ask for towels early in the day because they don’t have housekeepers on site all day. The location and cleanliness was on point! The rooftop pool was legit! Beautiful!
