I was picked by the Hotel shuttle from the airport. The driver was polite and friendly. I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the well appointed rooms. The food was tasty and creatively presented. The staff were very friendly and professional and always eager to help. I would certainly stay there for my next visit
