Sorry, I am just seeing this question. If I remember correctly our rate was $175.00 for one night which included fees and taxes. We were there in October 2016.

Do you have any pictures of the in-room jacuzzi?
I don't have any pictures. it's not a jacuzzi but a jetted tub. Think of a regular sized bath tub with water jets, that's what they have.

Hello! How much do breakfast and dinner cost in the hotel? Thank you so much for the answer.
We have to pay maybe 15 $ per person (dinner). Breakfast is not expensive...there was a restaurant including buffer or bar for take away.
