The hotel room was beautiful. Very spacious and clean. I liked the size of the bathroom. And the view from the back of the hotel is breathtaking. The front office was very nice and efficient. I would love to visit the Cliffs Resort again. On a side note I did notice that the fireplace was a little difficult to figure out. I had to call the front desk for help and they were very kind and I figured it out real quick. I also saw a bug by the sliding glass door. And with the angle of the tv it's hard for it to sense the remote.
