We stay at Wanna Wanna every year for the 4th of July weekend. We always get great service. The front desk (Junior) tries to accommodate us in every way he possibly can however when the rooms are in such desperate need for updates, it is hard for him to do anything. Shower pressure was non-existent. The pressue was worse (if that is possible), if they were using the hose to fill the pool; there was only a trickle of water. Water had a rank smell that lingered on your body and hair even after a shower. Our fake balcony had a sliding glass door that would not completely close letting in humidity. Beds were very uncomfortable.
As other posts have mentioned, this is a great location, right on the beach with a fun beach bar serving excellent shrimp however it is very apparent that the specialty drinks are watered down. Not worth the $12 to $14 a drink!! (Bring liquor to make your own.)
All in all, it is not the same place it has been in years past. The really need to spend some money and update the rooms and facility including the volleyball post and net. We will continue to come back but we will reserch to see if our money could be better spent elsewhere for lodging and just walk the beach to visit the bar.
As always, thumbs up for the Bongo Dogs and the gentleman playing acoustic during the day!!
