Great place to stay
This hotel is lovely. They have two pools with many chairs. We didn't have an issue getting seats. I don't think they were full, but based on the number, it seems likely that people could secure a chair for a few hours when they wanted. The rooms were nice - spacious. The bathrooms were nice (shower is on small side). The breakfast was part continental style with eggs/bacon to order. Overall, nice breakfast. My only complain was the bed was very firm.
