Our hot springs location was called paradise, which was all the way at the top. This two seater was in a great location looking into the colorful forest. The tub did have a discrete smell to it, but the location was perfect--Noone to worry about while changing. We were walk ins and got served right away. We spent the whole... More

Nice little resort. We did camping in tents, but they had single wide trailors available for rent also. Hot springs and pool open. Bathroom with hot showers available. Hot food served. Nice trail just below the resort that leads to the beach.

The minute we pulled into the "campground" my 9 year old son asked if we could sue for false advertising. The place was a crowded, dusty, dirty, squalid mess. I felt like I was squatting in a parking lot overnight. The pool wasn't so bad. The kids had a great time, but the locker rooms were dirty and smelly and... More

And all utilities are included! including cable TV!!! (she does have to pay for internet on her own). The unit is super clean and even... More

When searching for this hotel it looked so cute,which was very misleading because it doesn't look anything like that. I called and they said they have family night for Fri. night with a kids movie that starts at 8pm. Walked in at 8:05 and it was an adult movie and was over in 15 minutes. There is nowhere on the...

On a hot summer day it's nice to relax at the pool. The jacuzzi smells but that's because they're hot springs. The accommodations are nice and kept up. There's is a nice spa you won't regret going to. Overall it is just pure fun!

Do NOT attempt to stay here. After a 4 hour drive we arrived at this "resort" at 3pm to be told that the door did not have a lock and they could not replace it. They asked if we would stay without a locking door. Seriously? I would've appreciated a phone call to alert me to this so I could... More

DO NOT STAY HERE!! False advertising: Horribly over priced, extremely RUDE people who apparently live here in the cabins year round, and dirt parking lot camp ground advertised as having palm trees and green grass! Very disappointed upon arrival - our mistake for not having read prior Trip Advisor reviews.

This place needs a overhaul to say the least. Extremely unclean and stateboard violations everywhere. Lifeguards do not take job seriously and not paying attention often reading or lounging in hot water while working, toddlers in diapers in 8 and above hot pool,womens bathroom dirty and drains full of hair. Nasty
