Stayed right after Christmas. On check-in neither person at registration could be bothered to acknowledge us, much less check us in. Finally one gave in and went through the motions of issuing the keys - obviously could have cared less if we were there. Room was clean however first night we had to call down to desk at 3 a.m. as heat/air was not functioning. He came right up - apparently it had been shut down at the unit and he had to reset it. The promised balcony had only one chair, was dirty with a ripped screen that blew about. You have to pay an extra $10 per night for a refrigerator(!). I'm sorry - this is a RESORT hotel??? Staff at bar and Parakeet Cafe great. They were the only friendly people there. Watch out for time share sales tactics at concierge desk. Also, the shuttles to the parks DO NOT RUN on the schedules quoted and everybody but you knows it-apparently an insider joke.
