Making memories
Our stay was very delightful, the staff was very friendly and helpful(Ruthie, Samantha, Michelle). Only two things that put a downer on our stay 1.We didn't get the deluxe room we ordered as it was double booked and already occupied when we arrived . 2.The wifi was not working at all.
