Despite the fact that I had made booking very early in February for 2 rooms with Queen bed and a third with 2 double beds, upon arrival I was told that the room with 2 double bed is not available and all the 3 rooms are with Queen bed. Even when I showed the print out of confirmation, the employee insisted that she doesn't have it on the computer. I was reluctantly constrained to use the room that I did not ask for. Though I was given a discount of $5 on that particular room, I regret to say that the employee was discourteous in dealing with the situation.
One receptionist v friendly & v helpful; others not bothered - lacked eye contact and a smile. Need to open the swimming pool ealier than may (It was v hot in early April) Not many places to eat around if you have no transport.
Quiet eventhough 2 buses of kidsa were at the facility.
Beds were not real comfortable. I reserved a king size nonsmoking and I got 2 double non-smoking.
Convenience to airport
very limited dining nearby
the shuttle service the continental breakfast
had a nonsmoking room but there were rooms on the same floor that did allow smoking so as we went to our room the smoking smell was still very evident!
