    The rooms and the pool are very nice, but the restaurant felt stuffy on the night we were there..they need to add more pedestal fans...we were so hot, we shifted our table so we could get some relief...

    Comfortable and charming. Room is quaint with a big wooden door and a key the size of a hand. Very nice inside pool. A bit noisy as all rooms are off a central open hallway. Excellent food and great desk people. Felt very secure.
