Service Staff A Disappointment

Several guest remark that service is slow, the staff distracted, and inattentive, not as accommodating as one would hope. Requests for additional towels or other services were delayed.

Could Be A Bit Better

Guests remarked that the rooms were clean and comfortable but litter was noted on the decking of the patio. Other guests suggest avoiding the rooms close to the elevator as the noise form other guests disturbed their rest throughout the night.

Food Not Inspired

Some guests remarked that although the buffet offering were hot and abundant they were uninspired and lacked diversity. Guests suggest that offering different entrees from day to day would be nice.
