    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The unit was very clean and the bed comfortable. The cleaning and maintenance staff were very friendly, nice people. The restaurant staff were the same and the food was great and reasonably priced. The office staff tended to be a bit humourless and the wifi almost nonexistant. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it
