The pool area was really nice and service was fantastic! Rooms were also good, but not quite as modern as other areas. There was also a good choice of food at breakfast. It's a good hotel for a one or two day stop!

Everything else is adequate but the NOISE from the staff. Seems that they have PARTY every day since 8am. There's a room for them to stay or rest, and they are very HAPPY there. They turned the TV on with loud music, you could hear them talk, laugh and sometimes shout. It starts from 8-10am and 1-3pm, perfect time for... More

We only stayed here for one night, but it would be very comfortable for an extended stay. There was a huge refrigerator and microwave and second sink near them. The atrium was nicely landscaped too. A very nice variety of food for breakfast as well!
