We spent a few days here as a break from the manic parks of Orlando. I will be very brief. The beach is magnificent, there is plenty to do, the pools are great and the entertainment is fine.
However, the rooms are like cells. We paid the best part of $200 a night in a room with no space, a bathroom so small the sink was in a separate part, the shower literally dribbled out and for the amount charged i am sure we could have got better value for our money.
The hotel is dated frankly. And I doubt very much we will return.
