Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Toilet was clogged soon arrival. Called the front desk I was told if I wanted maintenance or a plunger. Asked for maintenance they said they would send someone down. Hour later no one arrived, no call, no answer. Went to the main desk the guy behind the desk personally handed me a plunger. No maintenance! Had to use the plunger my self lol hot tub is for one person definitely not two!! Tv stand had draw missing. Finally laid down the fire alarm went off forcing guests outside in the middle of the night. Terrible place for Valentine’s weekend but made the most of it. Never again..
