The hotel has very pretty grounds and a gorgeous pool. The rooms are nice and clean the sangria restaurant and bar is pleasant and the food is good but there are not enough waiters or waitresses. Tot takes too long to be waited on.

Hello no it isn't I thought it was going to be free going from The Airport to The Hotel.There was a $8 US Dollars for each leg still I think that's a good deal.I think a Cab would probably easily cost you $20 one way.
