The Bad
As is often the case, the hotel received some critique as well.

A couple of guests thought the pool was small and one said not deep enough. 

Other negative comments, seemingly isolated and only voiced by single reviewers, included: restaurant food being too expensive for what was served and complimentary mini-fridges were all checked out and unavailable.
