On site restaurant was convenient and food was very good. Staff were helpful and friendly but the swimming pool was filthy. The Spa was also filthy and unusable. Review said recently renovated but looked more like 7 or more years ago. Bed was ok but only for two or so nights. Closer attention to cleaning of the rooms would improve the rating.

Hi Michele, We are sorry for the inconvenience. We had a bad Strom and winds last week which made the pool dirty. We make sure we clean the pool every day. We also take your advice to look into closer attention to room cleaning. Once again apologies for the inconvenience caused
