Disliked: Amenities
the staff at the restaurant were not welcoming, breakfast options were constantly needing to be refilled and no one cared to stay on top of it. on the first day, our lunch meal was incorrect, and the waiter insisted he didn't hear me. We ate off premise after that experience.

The place was very clean and friendly. There are many different restaurants in walking distance but they were also very accommodating at helping us make dinner reservations at other restaurants around the island. They had a car delivered to us to drive around the island.
