Tried to cancel due to COVID, hotel was fine and affirmed that this would be ok but would have to go through booking service. Was continually put through and automatic service that failed to ever reach a conclusion- your total service is appalling and there was no way to contact you effectively, rip off and joke!!! Can’t believe it is legal under local consumer laws, CAN YOU CONTACT ME ASAP!!!!!!!!!!

I liked that they treated you like an adult so you could swim in the pool or go to the gym any time you liked. Didn’t have 100 rules to follow and were very relaxed about things. A pleasant change

The noise from the vent/ac was quite loud even with the ac turned off at night. Some noise from the room above us as well as the main bar - not great but it ended around 8pm. Room size was great. The loot bag of goodies and comp mini bar ( though limited) was appreciated.
