Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Very friendly and helpful staff. 2 bedroom Unit was very clean, however it was dated. Note on the wall stating Guests need to do own dishes or there is an additional charge, which was very disappointing as previous guests may not have washed them well. Pool and mineral pool were nice.
