We are elated to announce that we will be renovating our indoor pool! In our effort to maintain the best quality we have decided to schedule the project during our slowest season. Unfortunately, the pool will be out of service from November 27, 2017 to December 17, 2017. Please take this into consideration when booking your reservation. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but hope that the final outcome will be greatly enjoyed by our guests. For any questions, please contact the hotel directly at anytime.
