Recently stayed at the hotel over Christmas 2011. The area is lovely and the accommodations are nice but there are some drawbacks that visitors should be aware of. Do not arrive after dark or outside of the reception hours. We arrived at 7:30 pm to find reception closed and an envelope at the desk with our name on it. This directed us to our room. There was no one to ask questions of - like how do I get the air conditioning to work or where do I find food.. It was a very unpleasant start to our stay there. Also - there is no elevators and unless you are willing and able to carry your luggage up three flights of stairs - this is not the place for you. The air conditioning was not particularily effective and this was summer so very hot and humid. And the air conditioner was very, very loud!
On the plus side, the location was great, the pool area and bbq's were great, grocery stores were walking distance and the breakfast at the pool side was excellent. Make sure the breakfasts are included in your room!
