First time stay and will return. Rented a two queen bed room which was fairly standard, shower was newly renovated and very good. We also used the pool which is a nice size.
What set this place apart was the breakfast and the breakfast service. We added the breakfast to the room (kids under 16 eat free) and it was a real treat. Keep up the good work.
Perfect ocation in the middle of evrything. The staff is very friendly and professional. The hotel is very clean. The rooms are very nice and very clean. They are however very small. This is the only negative.
