Their friendliness and enthusiasm makes for a very fun atmosphere at the resort. There are always activities to enjoy. The food was awesome, lots of variety. I... More

I went down with my family last week, and we had a great time. There was always lots to do, and the atmosphere of the resort was great. "Jonny Bravo" and the rest of the staff were wonderful, and made the experience all the more fun and personal. Lovely ocean front, and great pools. -Ashley and family

The rating of terrible was earned by this place. My room was nice but rarely had water or electricity. They say they have dozens of restaurants but they are impossible to get in to. We were so called "VIPs" with a high level wristband but that doesnt matter for any thing. The food at the buffetts is marginal at best.... More
