"Housekeeping staff were excellent. Pools were excellent. Restaurant only offered buffet for breakfast and every hot dish was cold and almost empty (at 10 am). Would have preferred to order from a menu therefore ALL other meals were eaten elsewhere."

"A few details need to be tended to. Coffee maker not working properly, dish tray dirty...nothing major just irritating. Could have used an extra chair or two on the main floor. Loft OK."
