    Exceptional

    The room was very clean, roomy and the bed was awesome. I slept like a baby. The hotel was very safe. The need of a room key for access makes guests feel extra safe.

    I cannot think of a thing that I didn't like.

    Good

    Breakfast buffet at restaurant made me and my family not feel so well afterwards .

    Did not like the chaos at the pool. A lot of the big kids were rough housing and jumping over the little kids. They were unsupervised and unruly. Based on this, i will NOT book this hotel again.
