If it wasn't for the golf course and the beach (on its own island), this would probably be a Hilton or a DoubleTree resort. In fact, a few years ago, this was a Wyndham resort.
The rooms have 26" Zenith TVs (yes, Zenith), not Samsung or Sony or LG. There is a desk in the room, but you can't easily reach the electrical outlet. The room decor can best be described as bland.
Housekeeping was inconsistent. it took a couple of days for one trash can to be emptied. We took water the first day we were there, but if was several days before the water was restocked. One day we returned to the room in the late afternoon to discover no bath towels, but an air mattress that we never requested.
The resort has a very large convention space. When we were there, there were 2 conferences. The first was fine. The participants from the second were slamming doors at midnight and being loud drunks in the hallway at 3:30 in the morning.
There is no longer a casino at the resort. It's now an entertainment area with pool tables, track car racing and basketball games.
Not all is negative. The resort is situated right on the water. The views are quite impressive, particularly if you have a water view room. The resort has free wi-fi.
You take a 20 minute boat ride to the island with the beach. There are a lot of lounge chairs on the island, but you should try to get to the island as soon as you can in the morning for the best choice of location.
