Recently visited for a week and after reading some bad reviews was a little worried.
However, I think the bad reviews are based on those people who pay a low price and have a high expectation. Yes the place is looking tired in areas and could do with new carpets in the corridors and some tlc in other areas, particularly replacing of the corridor carpets and a bathroom upgrade. However, our room was up to standard and the beds were very comfy. Staff were pleasant and a bonus was the $9 dollar per person per day breakfast credit. The gaming in the casino was good, with a full range of slots and we saw many reasonable payouts. $800 for a $2 dollar stake being the highest (but not mine :( )
The pool area was good but was frustrating as people would bag chairs with towels so unless you got there early it was difficult to get seating. They search your bags on entry to check for booze and snacks so we had a good laugh when we watched one girl decant several miniatures from her bra.... so here's a top tip!
For location and price this is hard to beat. This was my 13th visit so I can speak from experience.
Bottom line.... you get what you pay for. If you want glitz and style then pay the money and book elsewhere, otherwise don't moan!!
