Our experience was much different than many described. When we arrived the staff seemed cranky. We are a family of four and shared one room, which was said to fit 2 adults and 2 kids. Technically, I guess it did as we had three of us in one big bed and a roll away brought in that took up all remaining floor space. This we could have gotten over if it had not been for the sewer smell that took over our room every time the air conditioning was turned off, which is every time you leave the room. This was also a problem in our friend's room. We also had to hold our breathe walking back and forth to the pool area as by the restaurant was very stinky, too. We spend much of the vacation trying not to smell [--]! The pool area itself was good fun. The landscaping was not up to par as there was tons of dead foliage around. The beach was HORRIBLE. Zero beach chairs, garbage on the sand and junk piled up around the perimeter. I was very disappointed especially after all the good reviews. I'm just trying to keep it real and let people know what to really expect. I would never in a million years recommend this place - especially for the price.
