Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Check-in was fairly simple and smooth. We were in the one bedroom suite with a kitchen. Alliances and the unit were older, but everything was nicely maintained. No issues with the facilities. Having 4 small kids, it was nice and convenient having the kitchen right there in our room. The unit was private, and everything very clean. Pool was heated, which made my kids happy because they could go swimming even on a cool day (still not warm enough for me to get in with them)!
