This place is one of the worst hotels we have ever set foot it. Very out dated and dirty. There were plenty of pools but we did not set foot in them. After seeing our room we did not want any part of this resort. Room was very dirty, holes in the wall and needed painted.

Good beach area easy to get to the beach. Rooms were clean and nice. The only problem was the elevators were very slow and some didn't work. Need to... More

Great for kids not adults. Do not order the margaritas at the bar - they are terrible. Beer is the safe bet. Pool was packed all day every day so you really couldn't enjoy it unless you were comfortable rubbing up against others. The lazy river was nice. The overall grounds surrounding the pool were well kept. Saw more bugs... More

The kids had a good time overall. I found that this hotel needs some renovations. I would have like to have seen a playground for the younger kids to enjoy as there was no place for them to play if they weren't specifically at the pool. My youngest wanted to play with the other kids but didn't want to spend... More

I stayed here once when the place was fresh and considered a high end resort. I was so disappointed this time around and would not stay here again. The elevators were terrible. One was broken the whole time and the other two seemed to have no rhyme or reason to the order they stopped. The wait was ridiculous and then... More

The hotel has really nice amenities such as the full kitchen and activites for the family. However, the hotel is in need of remodeling. The carpet in our room 219 was old and smelly. The room smelled like a wet dog stayed in our room...despite no pets allowed. Pack plenty of bug spray, I had to kill cockroaches and ants!... More
