We booked 2 rooms over Labor Day weekend. From our arrival on, it was a GREAT hotel. I have medical problems and did not book a ground room, the staff was so helpful and moved us to a ground room. Our children loved the slide, complimentary surf boards and sand castle building accessories. The pool attendant was very nice and... More

We stayed 4 nights at Sun Viking Lodge. It was our first stay there and we loved it. We enjoyed the beautiful indoor garden pool with beautiful waterfall and lovely flowers. The outdoor pool was enjoyable, too. We had fun watching the kids (and grownups) on the waterslide. The hot tub was so relaxing after a day on the beach.... More

My daughter and I spent 2 nights. We arrived early in the day and our room was not yet ready. They expedited the cleaning and gave me a call on my cell phone as soon as the room was ready. All staff in the office and maids were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a little outdated, but very clean... More

Hotel was a bit dated. Customer service was phenomenal and the location was beautiful. Playground needs to have a fence protecting open access from the parking lot and road.

We liked the how clean the property was. Slide at the pool was great for the kids. Room was large.. ask for the rooms in the tower. We had 6 people in the room and had plenty of space. It had a sofa bed too. Location was good. The only drawback was the price... a little high for the area.

we had 3 rooms for all 11 of us in our family. 2 were on the top floor, identical with kitchens and one walked out to indoor pool, an efficiency. These rooms met our needs perfectly.
