I like having access to the casino, I liked how there was a check point between the hotel and casino. Check in was disappointing. Nothing seemed VIP. And when I went to confirm options that app stated they have. The staff refused and stated they are not honoring it. All the amenities were closed except for the pool. I don’t see how the resort fee should be applicable when most of the resort is not available. Room service was decent except that in order to see a menu, you have to use a phone. Plus if you ask what they have, they just tell you to refer to menu. All this information is not fully explained and takes some effort.
