6/10 Good

Not worth it
My stay here was just ok. One of the first nights I stayed here, a cockroach crawled across my bed as I was getting ready to go to sleep. I told the staff the next day and they were apologetic. A few days later, I saw a pest control truck which leads me to believe this wasn't an isolated incident. Pool chairs are coming apart, the linens were often frayed, my duvet even had a hole in it that was conveniently tucked into the bed to conceal it. The cafe nearby had a better breakfast for a similar price. I will say, the grounds are very attractive. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Not as nice as it seems from the pictures
The room wasn't ready until late in the day and they weren't very friendly or accommodating. There were no toiletries and the room was older and more run-down than expected from the pictures. The pool was undergoing construction and was dirty and small. Overall, this was a letdown.
