Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Disliked: Staff & service
the staff at the hotel were terrible beyond words. the general manager seemed to be inconvenienced by the world. Wake up staff you complain no one is travelling due to covid but then dont want to serve anyone who actually are keeping them in their jobs.
Stayed 5 days. Why I wouldn't return - room never serviced despite my request. Had to ask for coffee and milk, no ice maker that I could see, same face cloth and towels for the duration. Dirty bathroom floor, balcony needs a good pressure wash. The good - beautiful pool, good air con, didn't charge for onsite parking (normally $15/day), most staff were friendly.
