Excellent pool, very large and great for swimming. Easy parking. Close proximity to highway for travel to surrounding areas. Very good dining facilities and customer service. Jacuzzi pump was not working, and the water temperature was lukewarm.

To be honest, I was disappointed with the experience, after staying at the hotel for several hours, after paying, I did not stay for the night and went to another hotel. The staff does not care about the guests, they give rooms that are not at all the ones that were booked, there was a trash can in the room.

The property was nice. Aside from the breakfast buffet that could’ve had more of a selection. Also the rain didn’t help much
