Bike rentals were not complimentary, everything was booked and was told there would be plenty and not to worry about booking. Limited food options, pools were jammed packed, air conditioner in room didn’t work so it was very hot, telephone didn’t work and had to call the hotel restaurant 10x to order food. Will not be staying here again.

Love the location and workers. Had loud people our final night that kept slamming the door so hard it made the bed shake. Limited housekeeping because of covid and our tv didn't work. Not a huge deal since we're not in the room often. I do love this property and we stay here yearly. Parking was fine, just expensive.
