Our bed was a king size and was extremely hard. By the time our holiday was drawing to a close, our backs were beginning...

We stayed from Dec 21-28. The staff was incredibly friendly, especially Raul, the bellman. The check in process was a bit slow. Our room was not ready until almost 4pm that day...we arrived at 8am.
