The hotel today is much different them what it looks on the pictures they took 20 years ago... The property is not well kept, my room was moldy and even had black mold on the blanket. No manager on site (at least that's what they said) to solve issues.

Great value for your money. The view was incredible and the staff were wonderful. They're going through a change of ownership and were in the middle of renovations that started at 7am which wasn't favorable for us with a baby who sleeps in :) The facilities were beautiful and I would stay here again. There were no signs for the door to ask for house keeping or not. We didn't want house keeping and walked in to our room to find two cleaners rummaging through our stuff on the spare bed that wasn't used and didn't need to be made up.
