The experience I recieved in the restaurant in the morning really not good. All other staff were extremely helpful and provided great customer service. After the rudeness from the hostess in the breakfast area I and the other members of my group went to a different hotel next door for breakfast each day rather than use the hotel facilities .

The pool area is fantastic for families. The rooms are nice and clean and the only thing is that we couldn't open a window to enjoy the dry season evening.

The property and service was great, the only thing I can fault them on was the lack of towels. When they cleaned out the room after the first night they took some towels (they didn’t need to they were hanging up and would have been fine for another night) and didn’t replace them, so we only had 2 towels for 4 people the second night.

Air conditioning did not work constantly cold even asking for it to br fixed all they did was lower the fan speed and never came back. Poor water pressure and no cold water needed as water temperature just hot enough for a shower. No mini bar even as we were in a suite. Big room shall window. Warm beer one night and could not make a basic cocktail. Will not be back.
