The front desk people are not friendly, managers do not greet people, and the place smells. First of all the place smells like smoke. If it is a kids friendly place why allow smoking areas. The room restroom stinks, the toilet it was not cleaned, you can see the inde was very black, everything is very old. The balcony stinks... More

I believe a vacation is what you make of it. The staff was checking on us constantly, to make sure all our needs we're met. Mark, Nelson & josh all give us cards to reach them in case we needed any thing and I watched them interact with all the guest and everyone Loved to speak with them. The shack... More

Had wondered what made this a "resort" and I found out. Had great family activities in the evening without additional charge. There was a magician that the whole family could enjoy, a Polynesian dance group that you could view from your room balcony, and a great breakfast buffet. The staff was very helpful with dining suggestions that turnded out wonderful!

We were walk-ins while traveling on motorcycles. It was late at night and we needed 5 rooms. Desk staff gave us 5 rooms right next to each other at a great rate. All the staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially Josh Lucas! He kept an eye on our motorcycles and gave us special parking! Will be back someday! !

Stayed for 3 days with my boyfriend, ordered a suite and got a room with a queen size bed and two bunk beds which made it look like a jail cell. Complained and the manager was extremely professional and fixed it immediately and gave us a much nicer room without the bunk beds. My standards are higher when it comes... More

This was a very enjoyable stay. There is lots to do at the hotel. Nice pool, nice beach and facilities. Live entertainment, movies, good choice of eating including pool side grills. Friendly and helpful staff. Very fun place to be. Rooms could use a little TLC but overall were nice, safe, clean and quite. We plan to go back!
