Very clean and comfortable room. Great pillows. Beautiful property and area. The only downside to the room was the TV. It was small and the remote was not working correctly.

Bathroom was dirty and tile pieces broken but and I could hear the people above me walking around and toilets flushing. Overall the beds are decent with plenty of pillows but not enough blankets. Great buffet breakfast that comes with the price of hot room, great pool and hot tub and outside courtyard. Love the fire pit!
