Negative Reviews

Dissapointed Dining

Some guests weren't too impressed with the restaurant nor the daily breakfast, describing it as mediocre and poor in selection. The menu is a bit limited and breakfast left something to be desired..

Limited Hours

Guests have complimentary access the spa facilities, including the pool and Jacuzzi, but the hours are limited. Many guests found the free access hours to be too inconvenient and restricting. However, you have the option to access the spa facilities for a small fee throughout the day.

Minor Noise

Though most guests didn't have a complaint, some found that in a few of the rooms, noise from street traffic and the hallways can be bothersome. If you're a light sleeper, you may want to bring a pair of earplugs as a precaution
