Very nice and clean. The view was extraordinary and relaxing. There was an exclusiveness feel on the place since it is farther from the other hotels in the center. People were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely go back to this place.

Great Hotel for a Relaxing Vacation
Amazing experience! Danielle was the best. She went above and beyond to make our stay fantastic. We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and she made sure we had the best room and even sent us a bottle of wine. The rooms were clean, the views magnificent and the property was quiet and peaceful. Exactly what we needed and we will be back!
