A few of the staff just seem very curt and short in dealing with customer service issues and the parking situation was just a clown show and my vehicle was not charged as requested and was told by parking valets

I don't like the late checking. It doesn't allow me to really enjoy the facilities. In at 4pm and out 11am. I am at the beach and my leisure time would be 11am 4pm. That is the time I'd like to be at the pool
