  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

This property had more amenities than any of our other hotels we started at during our trip. Nice room, lots of tour options, sweet pool, friendly staff, a shuttle. Thank you for using more environmentally friendly refillable soap/shampoo/conditioning dispensers! And having face towels. And not combining shampoo and conditioner. Folks with long hair really need them separate! Great place!
