Traveled with group
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Was not properly staffed up: No screens on the windows or porch furniture: the pool had left over cups and dirty towels around the area: no room service, but that's ok: front desk could not make change: I paid for a 'pool side' view but room 301 did not have a pool side view. It was an ok stay.
