We had a room in the lodge which is badly in need of refurbishing. As adults we would not stay there again. Were I to rate it solely on our accommodations I would rate it a one. To be fair, however, it is a really good place to stay for families with small children, IF you are able to book one of their "cottages". The location, just before the OC bridge is surrounded by outlets, restaurants, etc. You may hit heavy traffic leaving and arriving the resort because of it's location on Ocean Gateway. The pools, mini-golf, service, arcade, staff, housekeeping, etc. are very good, hence the three star rating.

Nothing else to do so decided to head to sure thing FSK for the kids spring break and as expected it didnt disappoint. FSK has definitely adapted to the Covid protocols and has learned to make the best of the restrictions. Great to see more stuff opening like the movie theater. As usual the staff is absolutely awesome. Shout out to Heather, Ben, Amanda and John. This is still my favorite place to go and I cant get enough of it. I am always looking for an excuse to go. Looking forward to my yearly July trip. Until then be safe FSK!!
