Property is well maintained & clean. Loved the aqua fit classes. Instructors were inspiring. Wish there was somewhere on the property to have a decent meal or somewhere within walking distance. Have to have a car to do anything.

Really enjoyed my stay - very impressed with the room. I was off season so I did not use all the facilities as it was very hot. Room was well stocked with all utensils and appliances. The room and staff were wunnerful, wunnerful, wunnerful.

There is no mandatory charge - new towels and linens to start, trash collected daily - new towels can be collected twice weekly with no charge . BUT daily or less often maid service is charged - why pay. Mike
