V. Buffet British/American style lavish and tasty breakfast until 12 noon included in price.
VI. Large rooms
Cons: air conditioning made room comfortable but it was irritating that theormostat did not work properly and was "off" and needed adjustment BUT room was able to be cooled but needed assistance form help..
