El trato de las algunas chicas del staff dejaron que desear. Hubo una chica africanoamericana que no tenìa muy buena actitud. Les aconsejo...dar un mejor trato de hacer las llamadas para el servicio de shuttle/bus al aeropuerto estàrìa bien. La comida fue empezada a ser racionada en una semana que estuve y tenìas que llevar tu reserva para desayunar despuès de que pagaste casi una cantidad considerable como casi 70 dòlares diarios Yo me gaste casi 700 en 10 dìas de estancia!!!
