I'll start with the best experience being the registration ( and check out) both women were above and beyond, too bad it ended there. We stayed there 2 years ago and found it decent so we went back, this year they are promoting all new rooms, sorry but a fresh coat of paint does not qualify. There was a constant... More

Let me start off by saying that I stayed here about 16 years ago and loved this resort. Last year my husband and I stayed at the resort during the beginning stages of the renovation and our room was fine, the pool and view were great, but the rest of it was in real rough shape. Last week we visited... More

This hotel, looked like a marvelous resort, with a fantastic waterpark from their website. But when you get there you see it's quite a different story. This place is a dump that looks like it jumped straight out of the 70s ghetto. I'm talking, creaky elevators, one of which broke down during our stay, dingy hallways, and filthy rooms. First...

There are way too many negative reviews! I read them all before went visited and I was a little worried but went anyway. But we were happy with our stay! and we drove 12 hours to get here!! We had two adults and three kids. We stayed in the 3rd tower and had an ocean view queen suite. The room... More

We decided to take our two small kids (2&6) on a long weekend getaway. We were so excited but this place is gross. First of all we called for an early checkin which we were told shouldn't be a problem. We ended up getting there right at 4pm which is checkin and had to wait until 6:30 to get into... More

just stayed for a Saturday to Monday weekend. The pictures on their website are pure deception and border on false advertising. Could not get a room until 6PM. Were told at 1PM that housekeeping is working on it and the my cell phone would be called when ready. NO, it took until 6PM. The room, a Queen Deluxe Suite, was... More

We stayed April 6 - 12. I wanted so badly to be able to write a good review with all the poor reviews. I hoped things had changed with all the renovations the hotel touted. But, where do I begin with such a disappointment? First day we checked in and was given somebody else's room. I felt horrible trying to... More

I have never felt so nasty! We checked in to a dirty, empty lobby. We went to our nasty, undecorated, dark room. We stayed 1 night even though we paid for 2. Do not stay here! The water park is a joke. I can't believe this place is actually open to the public.

First the hotel registration process was long and the people were very rude. The place looks dingy and unclean. Our door would not lock have the time. We were also awaken at 2:30 am by fire alarm. Had to go down stairs and wait. Someone had pulled the alarm. The security guard told us they had cameras, but family near... More
