Excellent Hotel

We went for a deluxe double room for 2 nights. Outstanding room. The level of service is a good as it gets anywhere. Hotel manager very visible and helpful. The $20 a day resort charge is very irritating, but every thing else was excellent. My wife loved the spa treatments. Kids loved the big pool.
