Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Everything needs updating.
No light bulbs in lamps, sofa too uncomfortable to sit on, no net curtain so no privacy, light from pool shining in window all night as no curtain to cover door window, hole in wall, poor kitchen utensils, advertised as having restaurant which is closed, grumpy receptionist. Wouldn't stay here again.

Was probably great in 1980

Pros: Not much.
Cons: Spend a few million dollars on it - or use a bull dozer to start again.
This establishment is completely run down and little maintenance seems to have been done since it opened, probably in the mid-80s. Calling it a "resort" is a bit of an overstatement. The room was awful due to lack of maintenance (literally half the lights worked, the kitchen cupboard would not close, and it took on average 5 minutes to convince the room door to open with the provided key. This place is a dump.

There have to be better properties in this area.

Posted 17-Feb-2015
Pros: The staff were courteous and helpful, providing us with lots of suggestions (and discounts) of places to see
Cons: The property is in serious need of a make over. It just looks run-down. Sofas have large indentations as do beds, tubs are faded, etc.
Location: There is a nice "eat street" downtown near the water that has a large selection of restaurants on a pedestrian-only street and lots of nearby parks.
At one time, I suppose this was a nice property, otherwise, I fail to understand the 3+ rating. We found the property to be in serious need of repair. It is also near hot springs and the resulting strong odor. The pool water was clear, pool floor was quite dirty. The "fitness center" was a room with torn carpet and an exercise bike that was in a storage position and the room also had an outdoor BBQ grill in the middle of it. The rooms looked very ragged, the doors into the rooms were screen doors ONLY. we had "hot tubs" in the rooms but none of us dared use them as nothing looked very clean. We were quite happy to put this property behind us.

Close to Town but you get what you pay for.

Was a comfortable stay for the 3 days we were there. Free WiFi which was a bonus but the only problem my wife and I had was that the spa area is not what it turned out to be like in the photos. In need of a good clean. Other than that it was good.
