Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property was clean, and the staff was very pleasant and service oriented. We had an evening shuttle driver (deglected to catch his name) that was over the top helpful and happy to shuttle us around. We ended up with a room whose door opened to the outside balcony instead of inside, as we were expecting. That resulted in a little more noise, and not as strong of a feeling of security. We had asked for an early morning shuttle to the airport. They told us to be in the lobby at 5:30, and we were, only to be told the shuttle driver left 5 minutes prior. While the staff ordered us a taxi at the hotel's expense instead, it still was a little annoying that it happened this way.
