I loved how welcoming the staff was. From the front desk to the room service. Everything was amazing! I only hope they had options for all inclusive deals so I was able to cover cots for dinner. I loved the free breakfast options. Great variety of food!. I will definitely be back to this hotel!

Late arrival

Our flight arrived around 10:45 pm. I had read in our reservation information that we needed to call the hotel if we were to arrive after 12:30 am. I did not see that as an issue until trying to navigate in a city at night with poorly marked streets and a rented GPS that: 1. Sent us the wrong way down one way streets. 2. Changed routes multiple times on the fly. 3. Took us into parts of town that best be avoided. While backtracking down another dark unlabeled Street I quickly realized we had no chance of making the 12:30 deadline. I also realized that we had no chance of figuring out the number or what steps I needed to take to use my phone in this foreign land while still navigating through the darkness. (Sorry, I know this sounds more like a GPS review than for a hotel. I’ll get to that part momentarily. It was important to understand my state of mind.) When I finally pulled up to the closed cross arm, I was worried that we were too late to check in. Suddenly, out popped a friendly guard that did his best to understand my English. He directed me to the door where we could check in. As we pulled into the beautiful courtyard my troubles melted away. There was a friendly gentleman at the desk that did not seem one bit annoyed by our late arrival. The gentleman that helped with our bags was very personable and was quick to help my mother get her room unlocked after locking her key in her room 30 seconds after arrival! We were up at 6:30 amazed beauty in and out. Great breakfa

Beautiful!

The hotel is beautiful and always smelled good! My stay was wonderful! The staff is very friendly! My only complaint is during the day my room was a bit warm, but at night it cooled down. The warmth in the room didn’t really bother me because I wasn’t in there much anyways.
