The staff are the most helpful I've ever met! I can not say enough about them, super friendly, professional, extreamly helpful with everything! Tomas gets to know the guest and even referred me to some Doctors. Free breakfast was good, room large and quiet, very clean. The pool and hot tube looked very clean although I was to busy to use them. Can't Wait to go back!

Nothing. Everything far exceded my expaections!!!
