    Property condition


    Noisy and outdated

    Tub was super dirty, check in was slow as clerk was on phone talking about sale of the timeshares. Whole place needs an update, small TV, no sound proofing, can hear neighbours on both sides as well as upstairs and anything that goes on in hallway

    Stayed 1 night in Dec 2018

    5/5 Excellent

    Christmas getaway.

    Booked spa treatments over the holidays. They went ahead and cancelled one of them without even notifying me cause it was boxing day and I guess they didnt want to work. Units dated, but clean amd comfortable. The front desk staff have no idea whats going on with the restaurant or spa. Considering they are all in the same building, they should have better communication. Probably wont be back. Was dissappointed. For 300 a night, expected better.
