"Spotless. The pool was nice. Well equiped kitchen. The staff was very helpful. We had a problem where a staff member accidentally threw out some of our labled food, and they replaced it right away."

Customer review

10 May 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Was a great place BUT they charge extra for tons of things. Renting DVDS, using headphones for Skype, calling for food delivery. Also they didn´t have enough lockers for everyone so you were out of luck storing your valuables if you didn´t get one. Other than those things it was a nice place, clean and friendly

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
