Overall experience was ok. It did t feel like a 4.5 star more like a 3.5 to 4 star. The staff was good but we had to continuously ask for more towels. The Japanese restaurants food was over cooked but was ok. But the bathrooms in the room needs a refurbishment, shower head was rusty, really old bathroom and sink had black rust on them. The pillows were hard to sleep on. The pool was good, the heated pols were ok too.
