When we came back out for dinner, the smell of pot smoke was heavy....ok, so somebody is "relaxing". After returning, we... More

Our two bedroom condo was wonderful as always. They have a cute Bistro within the hotel. We had breakfast there and it was very good! There is an indoor pool that looks very nice even though we did not utilize it. All staff are very welcoming. Clean, uncluttered.
