Great pool!
This hotel was okay for the price! The pool and change room facilities were great! The main disappointing point was that the family room was a queen bed with a sofa bed which was very small for two people! Also, when we arrived to our room it was not set up for four people! The restaurant was convenient after a long day of travel and the food was decent but a little pricey!
