We spent 5 days and everything was very clean, there were always pool towels available, the 2 pools with different temperature was a plus. The complementary happy hour everyday from 5pm - 630pm uff awesome. Staff very helpful and friendly. Walking distance to everywhere. Definitely we will be back.

Our room was on the front (no poolside rooms were available, so those may be more up to date). The room was large enough but the blinds and...
