We thoroughly enjoyed our weeknight evening at the Down Under Sports bar. Our husbands had played the golf simulator for hours and then joined us in the bar where we had appetizers and drinks. Nick, our bartender and host, was welcoming, engaging, and attentive. Quesadillas were great, chili was spicy, wings and nachos were very good. All is all it... More

In a word, meh. It was just ok, certainly didn't have that 'resort' feel. No elevator. Slightly worn.For some bizarre reason the closet was in the bathroom; it's like the architect put the door on the wrong wall.
