I would advice anyone to not come here it is a bad experience, I paid for parking access but the door broken and I waited for half hour in the freeze weather at night and we had to drag our stuff by ourselves to the room. Moreover, I can’t tell you how much noise is going on because of the contact room, our neighbors are having party It should be a relax trip but it turns into a nightmare

Do you not book with this property! Nothing but hidden fees! Horrible service rooms are severely outdated at best as a two star hotel

Claims to have beach access but it doesn’t. The staff says they are going to make it right but they did not either because I booked through a third party.

I did not like having to pay for parking and the property was not easy to find your way around. I did like it was a gated facility.
