“Good Beach Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Better than average food with a reasonable price. Worth not having to drive somewhere to eat while your at the pool. Need to be careful when ordering for kids. I asked for a cheese quesadilla for my 5 year old son and was charged the adult price for a chicken quesadilla because there is no cheese quesadilla on the kids menu. However, ordered a chicken caesar salad for my wife and was charged $3 for the chicken to go in it.

“Beautiful but dead”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

Tiki bar closed I assume due to weather. Could of opened tiki/pool bar after rain stopped but instead pool area was commatoosed. For 350 a night you would think they would be catering to your every whim. Guess not, had to rely on sunset which last time I checked was free. Pool attendant was rude while telling us we could not lounge in hot tub anymore since it was past 10:30. REALLY! Place was dead and we can't even hang out in hot tub. Wow that's pretty weak. Can't come back if you don't change your rules. To bad cuz it's really really nice.

“Good Food and Drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The food was very good and reasonably priced. As would be expected, the drinks were a little expensive-$10 for a small frozen margarita.
