We loved our stay here, kids had green grass to run around on while we were in the room. Room was clean. Location was quiet near the water. Location was great for us as we were within walking distance of where we needed to be. Will stay again.

The place is modern and clean. I like the size of the fridge but other than a kettlel there was nothing to have any meal with. Cutlery, plates or even a little microwave. I have stayed locally at much lower cost where alot more provided. Unless you are staying to be at the club, there are much better options locally.
