    Lovely location, hotel could be improved
    Lovely location. Bit disappointed in the room (newly refurbished). Sliding bathroom door was off the rail and had to fix it myself. The toilet roll holder was half off the wall. There was no storage in bathroom yet it was a good size. Needed a full length mirror. Having to pay a steep price for parking was a bit much considering the location.

    Amazing experience, the resort is so awesome, rooms were clean and fully stocked. I just thought for the price there should have been non spring mattresses

    A kink in the armour
    Everything was overall great but, when the room was cleaned they didn't clean that huge, beautiful bathtub. That was telling for me. if you don't clean something that obvious what else was not cleaned or just brushed over.

    Nice view. Our second time staying here. Only hiccup was Sean failing to activate our room keys correctly. We had problems getting out of the parking lot. Had to go back to the front desk so that they could properly activate our room keys.
