We recently attended the Arcadiacon convention here. I absolutely love the location right on the beach and the facility was up to date and nicely cared for. However, they only provided 2-3 staff members to provide lunch to over 2000 attendees! It was ridiculous! They kept running out of things and both days the lunch involved waiting in line 40 minutes to an hour! If you plan an event here, make sure they will provide a steady stream of food and more staff to serve it. The buffet dinner we had one of the nights featured excellent food. There's potential here if they staff appropriately. Also, on the first day of the show, the computer game set up blew a fuse. Not sure if the convention staff failed to communicate needs or if the facility failed to deliver. Would have been nice if the facility had more ability to rope off some lines. They need to get more of that equipment for sure.
