My fiancee and I loved our room. We had a studio. We really liked the apartment feel to it. Very cozy :) The breakfast and lunch items in the restaurant were delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again!

6/10 Good

Definitely an oldie
The "resort" is really dated, and the offer failed to mention there is no on-site restaurant - or even a snack machine - which meant a 15-minute walk to the business area in 100 degree heat. The only thing "resort"-like about it was a pool; otherwise it could have been mediocre motel.

Room was dirty and not disinfected. Pool water was hot couldn’t cool off. AC didn’t cook well enough to be comfortable in the room. We checked out the same day we checked in. Waiting for refund.
