Great service and organization.

We only stayed one night, and probably wouldn't stay there for much longer given we came for the island resorts. However for a transfer night, this was perfect. Nothing was a hassle and staff were very attentive. Even packed us a takeaway breakfast as we were leaving earlier than the restaurant opened. Thank you!
