Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The rooms were lovely and I enjoyed the balcony. Beds were reasonably comfortable. Spa pools were all closed due to Level 2 restrictions, but the outdoor pool was divine, lovely and warm. Wifi was so bad it was virtually unusable. Overall it was pleasant.

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very dissatisfied with our stay, bed was just plain awful, TV was not working properly, the toilet ran nonstop through the night. Seems because we got a deal through Expedia we get put in the absolute worst room in the place. Only good thing was the lady at the counter who signed us in, she was lovely. All in all it was a unforgettable stay for all the wrong reasons. They should have paid us to stay there.
