The pool and the property in general was clean.The resort was relaxing and quiet.The room in general could do with a better clean.Maybe the room cleaners should take a leaf out of the pool cleaner/maintenance man with a bit more attention to detail.I previously stayed here in March 2018 in room 252.This time in November 2019 in room 217.My first visit had a much cleaner room.
