    The pool is on the terrace on the roof of the hotel - great location. The pool is small - no room for swimming laps! It is a fantastic hotel.

    The pool is open 7 am to 10 pm. My friends and I definitely could have lingered later in the spa at night... but they do enforce the hours! Absolutely beautiful pool and jacuzzi.
