Vanessa made check-in a great experience after a very lomg flight. She was pleasant, professional, informative and just lovely. The server at the pool bar helped us get food eventhough the pool was no longer serving food. It was a great start to an amazing vacation.

We enjoyed our stay in the hotel, I liked the modern design, the location, and the friendly staff. In the beginning, we got a room with a bad smell and without a balcony, but then we asked to change it, and they changed it for us. Overall we had a lovely time! :)
