Good, relax and enjoyable
Staying for 1 night in family room. Room very spacious and cleaned. Staff overall ok but during my registration they not put in our breakfast in the list. Using pool and gym but its on our own no staff available for reference. The facilities is good. Other than that the parking bay is not enough since we need to park at the Plaza. Overall is quite okay and definitely we'll come again.
