  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

This property was in an excellent location and within walking distance to town, walkways and amenities. On the outside it looks lovely, the lobby, bar, restaurant all really, really lovely, the restaurant meals were beautiful. The pool was nice and clean, however the outside area and gardens were tired and dated and could do with some new furniture, fresh plantings and some paint and would be lovely. While our room was clean the bed was absolutely had it and the air conditioning was tired and struggled during the night making all sorts of noises.
