nWe have been coming here for YEARS! No its not a high class hotel,... Its dated and needs many things changed. But money can not replace a warm, caring place you called home for so many years! New owners came in and of course its all about MONEY!!!!! They could careless what you think, they even said, once the old regulars move on, the new people wont even notice the difference and we have that taken care of! Guess what, you are going to lose about 35 regular families that spent money there. Yeah, the "new" pool chairs are used and moved down from another place they bought! And you are also getting the used room furniture in your room from the place they bought too! So look real close cause you are charged a 25 a day resort fee, for crap that use to come free with a real person who knew you can cared about seeing you, also hidden 35 a day charge just in case you charge to your room, they give that back, but dont tell you, so your credit card takes a HUGE hit, it takes about 4 days for it to show back up. You can forget friendly staff, nope not here gone when the new owners came. I dont really care to hear we are sorry you feel this way, we are looking into this. No you are justing saying that and keeping the money rolling in. HONESTLY I could not work for this company or be the CEO of this place and lay my head down at night and sleep. sad times!!!
