“What a dump!”
Reviewed October 16, 2005

We were referred to this hotel by FAirfield Vacations, a timeshare organization. We were told it had a great indoor waterpark. Uh, wrong! It had a pool with a slide and a kid pool with a falling apart castle. The mens bathroom in the pool area had feces smeared on the wall. It took 2 days for them to clean that up. Around the pool area we found 3 used bandaids that were there during our entire stay (3 days). The kids pool had sand and dirt on the bottom. The hot tob was so hot you couldnt get in it. Nevertheless....we will never stay there again! I have been to cheap motels that were better than this place.

Stayed October 2005

Reviewed July 7, 2005

I had a bad experience with this resort & never even stayed there! I called them to make reservations on July 6, 2005 to take our granddaughter there on July 14. Our daughter called that afternoon to tell us there had been a change of plans & she wouldn't be coming that week after all. I called the resort immediately to cancel the reservation (about 4 hours after I made it) and was informed there would be a $20.00 "cancellation fee", even though this was ahead of their 72 hour limit for cancellations and about a week before we were supposed to be there. When I got upset and asked to speak to the manager, they said they could overlook the charge this time. We travel a lot and I have never heard of a hotel charging a "cancellation fee", especially only 4 hours after making a reservation. It removes any desire to stay at this resort, that's for sure!
