We spent a week at this Hotel and it is loads of fun for the family. Located right on the beach we have never experienced a place that advertised so many activities and actually came through with their promises. We enjoyed the Luau Firedance Show, the movie night ( Dorango, Yogi Bear) the water slide for the kids, shuffleboard, the pools, tiki bar, the Snack bar and the convience store was very convient for us also. All the prices were reasonable (for the store, Snacks, and Gift shop) no heavy gouging on prices. The resort is old though but the staff seems to try their best to keep it clean. Our room was comfortable and the air conditioner worked well. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

They had unlimited FREE activities for families at this resort! We were never searching for something to do. It's all right there on the property! We'll be back again and again!

The Hotel had many drunks, one before dinner time was drunk walked into a small child (who I might add was comming up steps from playground which is about 3 yards from very large tiki bar) fell multiple times, cursing and so forth. Not cutting others off in time was a major problem with the Tiki Bars. All of our food in our room had holes in the bags and boxes where our roomate the mouse had gotten hungry, MY TWO CHILDREN HAD EATEN OUT OF THE CHIPS BAG AND CHEESE-ITS WHERE WE DISCOVERED RAT DROPPINGS!!!!!! When i demanded the front desk to do something about it they responded with "We dont have rats or mice mam" So i preceded back to room and found a NEW mouse trap behind stove and took it to that same man, he stated "no refunds, all we can do is switch you to another room, but it wont be a balcony beach front, all we have in one bedroom/two twins with kitchen is on other side" I lost about $40 worth of food and had to listen to a loud mouse make racket all night long for two more nights.....it was not a good 10 hr drive back home with no sleep to say the least~

Room Tip: Look for rat droppings in balcony rooms

It was our first time there and we loved it!! I have 3 children ages 6,3,and 2 and they had a blast. Its an awesome family vacation place. I love that there is so much to do within the hotel not to mention all the extra activities you dont have to leave if you dont want. The activities are for all ages.
