The pool, the casino, the restaurants, the spa. All great things to do. The pool's DJ is super fun. The spa is tough to get into. Make an appointment upon arrival. The spa products are GREAT! The rooms are very accommodating and quiet. You will not be disappointed with your room. And if you are lucky, your slots will pay... More

We enjoyed the lovely pool, cafe, Coconut Bar and fantastic room-service breakfast! Who knew this gem would be located 10 miles from my home? I have traveled all over the world and can honesty say...

What a great stay, my first time staying after hitting the casino last year on a road trip. I was invited to enjoy a free night, free play and free food, who could resist. I live about 200 dollars’ worth of gas away unfortunately or I would go back often. Beautiful resort. I’ll start with the room. Big, open, comfortable.... More

The hotel has great rooms and they are spacious. Rates are very reasonable. Room was stocked with coffee and a Kierig coffee maker. Huge soaker tub, shower and comfortable beds. Lots of amenities in bathroom. Rooms are very quiet. Restaurants in the casino were good.
