The Bad
Of the reviews used for this analysis very little were negative. A few negative comments focused on the availability of breakfast and there was an isolated comment about noise.

A few guests felt the breakfast room closed too early and some noted that if you didn't get to the free breakfast early enough that you would be left with a reduced selection.

One guest, who stayed in a room near the pool, complained of excess noise from that area.
