We were picked up from the airport by the hotel shuttle without too long of a wait. We were able to check in before the official check in time and we received an upgrade to a whirlpool suite on the second floor of the main building. The front desk staff was always really nice and helpful. They also scheduled our shuttle to the cruise ship port for the next day during check in.
The room was clean and while not spacious, it was just the right size for two people. The downstairs waterfall could be heard through our window and was VERY relaxing. I would say that the bed was a little hard but we were only there for one night so it wasn't too bad. The walls are thin and at 1:00 AM we could hear the people in the next room moving furniture?!?!)
The bartender at the pool side bar was very nice. (I wouldn't suggest ordering frozen drinks there - they weren't as frozen as you would expect.)
We ate at the restaurant/bar downstairs. We ate out on the patio near the waterfall and koi pond. It was a really great place with GREAT burgers and even better service.
All in all it was a really good experience and if we are ever in Tampa again, we will stay here!
