Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Cleanliness
The staff was great! The Pool area and arcade was awesome. The free arcade really made it for my kids! The pool was clean, and nice. The refill on the towels was awesome! The rooms for sure need to be updated and newer stuff put in the room. Blankets need to be updated and new as well. The bathrooms were pretty gross. The area outside was pretty clean. The restaurant and the Bay area was amazing!

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Cleanliness
We loved the grounds and lobby of the resort. They were well maintained and beautiful. The rooms were disappointing. They were old and not updated at all. Carpets were stained and the bathroom sink was plugged and would not drain. We spoke to the desk people and asked for it to be addressed but was not during our stay. We loved the location of the hotel. Very walkable to the beach.

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our room was disgusting, nothing worked properly, the staff had zero communication with eachother and the price of our room was outrageous considering how horrible the condition of the rooms are. There is no room cleaning and we were to clean our rooms ourselves and there were dirty masks in several places in our room. It was a horrible experience
