No pool hours was nice. Close to the ocean. Beds in separate rooms allowed some privacy. Lots of technology. Power lift table and more.

Location was great, rooms were clean except for wet bath mat and understood that there would be a coffee pot in the room. Instead there was a steamer.

Sorry about the bath mat, we have coffee in the office. Steamer is a replacement of the iron.
