  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The water was obviously from a well and had a foul stench. Would NOT drink it, nor use it to brush my teeth. I took a shower there only out of desperation... after killing ants and a silverfish in the bathroom. The lobby is closed after 11 PM and only one of our key cards would open the front door, only after having to call the mgr. Would NOT stay here again.

Everything was wonderful. The bed was a bit to hard and would have preferred to have had more than two pillows.

Favorite part of our stay here is the fact that the resort is family owned. Will definitely be coming back for future stays :) :)
