  • Liked: Staff & service
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Stayed at this property for two days. I was unaware that the property had two buildings. One building had the pretty pictures where the reception and pool are, the other building was old, had the bedrooms which were old, not too clean. Pictures are very misleading. Not that close to transportation.
