Location was great and view was amazing. But the room was tiny for three people (two queen beds) and although I know things are complicated with the pandemic, the breakfast bag was not good. There were no healthy options except for a banana.

We had to come back early every day before 5 pm to get parking and the pool was not working so there was not much for us to do in the evening when we got back from our day. I mainly booked the place for the pool and hot tub for the kids. It was nice to have breakfast and the staff was nice the room was tight for 4 people.

i wish that more amenities were avaliable---understandable that they were closed due to Covid. I wished that our rooms were ready upon our arrival---we had to wait a few hours before we could gain access to our room and after a very long flight---it was somewhat annoying
