It will ruin your stay.
An unpleasant experience. A staff that sees you as a dollar sign and nothing else. Credit cards machines that don't work and if they do, you have to pay a 3.5% fee. Rooms that are rundown. Towels handed out very strictly - one only per day. You pay on the high end but get treated on the low end. Just very unpleasant. A big regret of mine. I should have not stayed here.

Business traveller
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
I travelled on business. This is a comfortable and convenient small resort. The food is OK, and there are local alternatives nearby. The wifi is fairly reliable, the staff are friendly and the breakfast is pretty good. It's a bit tired but everything works and the beds are comfortable.
