    The people are very nice and the service is great. However, for the price the interior of the rooms are poor. The water pressure is terrible; only some of the outlets work; not much light in the rooms or the bathrooms.

    None of the rooms have balconies facing outside. The rooms all face an open atrium which is very light with lots of little niches to sit. Inside the rooms though, we felt it was very dark even with all the lights on.
