My husband and children and I stayed here for a family vacation. The rooms were mostly clean (we rewashed all the eating and cooking utensils because there was still food on many of them from the previous guests) The units we bigger than I had expected. The decorating was below par, and the bedding was clearly VERY old 90's style and in need of an update. The view was excellent. The thing that I would like to inform people about is the manager, Ken. He takes his responsibility as the manager to an unhealthy level of harassing guests. I understand there is a "noise curfew" after 11pm which I would assume would be to avoid loud music, boisterous drunks etc. My husband and I were "reprimanded" several times for TALKING on our balcony after 11pm. This is a VACATION place, yet I felt like I was unable to actually enjoy myself because this guy would not leave us alone. For TALKING! We are both business owners in our 30's and when we put our kids to bed at night if we want to sit on the balcony and talk at a reasonable volume we should be able to. We are not 22 year old loud, wild kids. This guys sits there with his windows open (yes he stays on property) LISTENING just to reprimand his guests. It's like he gets a sick thrill out of it. I paid over $1000 to this place and I had to sit inside the room on MY vacation as to not upset this rude man. Read the other poor reviews, they actually say similar things. I spoke to other guests who were also staying there and they too and they experienced the same thing- getting yelled at by this guy. What's funny is that there was a night he wasn't there some people had a radio going and others were talking and laughing and guests were on their patios having a nice time. It was good to see people having fun there! The next day he was back and by 11 NO ONE was on their porches and it was dead silent. I read some of the negative reviews and ignored them. I wish I hadn't. Bottom line, I would NEVER stay here again unless a new manager was placed. I want to go on my vacation and not feel like a "hall monitor" is keeping tabs on my family and I.
