3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I thought I had booked the room that included breakfast. When I arrived to take breakfast I was informed breakfast was not included in the price I had advance paid for. This was not only disappointing, but expensive at $30.00 each. Additionally, the wait-staff needs improving. Slow and inattentive. Other than that, its a beautiful property and wonderful accommodations

Security at the parking lot and front door. Beautiful and clean property. Staff is mostly excellent. A couple times we had to look for help or wait but overall really good staff. Food off the ala carte menu is great! I checked out the buffet and looked ok but menu offerings were excellent. I recommend this property.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

This facility has first class infrastructure and amenities, but unfortunately does not have the staff to go with it. Their bathroom facilities are not private so if you share a room be prepared for this. Their breakfast rates are very expensive at $30. Lastly, if you ask for a taxi, the staff try to gouge you in an era where Uber is available at a click of button. It has a lot of potential, but first needs an overhaul of the staff from top to bottom.
