Very enjoyable stay.
Excellent stay. Hotel were great with the kids. The king corner room was more than big enough for two adults and two small kids. My only slight criticism is, there’s nothing for the guests at night if they don’t want to pay cover charges at the roof top bar(no kids allowed) or the Chalet bar.
