This venue has the potential to be a good location if the owners would spend the money on qualified staff. We had a meeting last night with the hotel and restaurant manager to sign the contract for our upcoming event. The restaurant manager showed and the hotel manager didn't. This was the date and time set by the hotel manager... More

The tea was old and awful, then the prime rib was well done when we ordered rare and medium. To topp it off the waiter delivered the check then disappeared for over 20 minutes. Finally we got change from the bartender and left the money. The worst dining experience in years.

The people running this resort ruined what could be a great resort. The location is fine, and everyone in St Pete knows where this place is and go to it as a hang out.

It's Boring. The rooms are dirty. Contacted management several times and no response. The worst Gay place in Florida. Oh. Please, It's not close to a RESORT!

I'd read the reviews on tripadvisor so I didn't expect anything amazing, but the lack of attention to the rooms was really disappointing. The carpet looked so dirty that I kept my shoes on the whole time and the bathroom just lacked a good, deep clean. Having said that, the parties at the weekend were well attended and a lot... More

I knew that there was a party place, and, hey, I was on a working vacation. They advertised wireless wrong. The music played loudly until 3 am on Sunday night. I was expecting it to go on, but when the rain came at about 7 pm that night, the crowd disappeared. There were like 10 folks in the whole area... More

In town for a business meeting and stayed with my husband. Sunday tea dance is a blast and we hung around the pool and tiki bar at night. A lot of fun and reasonable to boot.
