Beautiful & Relaxing!!”

The hotel is immaculate! The location is perfect - near the airport, but we did not hear any planes. The rooms are all updated to a modern look, it is nice and beds are comfortable, however the shower’s water pressure is a little too weak for us. The pool is incredibly designed with 5 jacuzzis. It was so relaxing. They also have a kids pool with slides on the other side of the hotel. It was a pleasant and relaxing stay. We will definitely return.
