The suite was much more spacious than I anticipated, with air conditioning, television, wifi, and hot water. The food at the hotel restaurant was good! All of the staff with whom we came in contact were very friendly - I'm sure traveling...

Stayed there recently for 8 days. The grounds are green and lush. Staff is very warm, friendly, attentive and tried their best. Picked this hotel looking for a 'locals' experience and based on the reviews here. We weren’t expecting a Sheraton, clearly it isn't, nor is it priced like a Sheraton. Stayed at a number of RCI timeshares before, this...

Stayed here for 8 days and got a decent rate, but beware of additional charges that they will try to put on your room bill. I had an extra $100 tacked on to my bill (a lady from Florida was charged an extra $300) with no valid reason for the charge (this was after I had paid upfront for my...

Thank you for writing your review, and choosing our Hotel in first place. However the reality is that you arrived booking one room for 2 people, and 5 people arrived at the hotel, the extra charges were for the breakfast included and there are no imaginary nor any charges made just to keep your money. If you have any issues...
