"Great value for the price!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Resort undergoing renovations so at times noisy. Other than that, it was great. Renovations done so far are top notch. Shower was awesome! Trendy small fridge and microwave. Huge pool with ample seating including cabanas. Tiki Hut with live entertainment on weekends. Staff very friendly. I'll be back!

"Resort?"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The front desk person was very hospitable, but the room left a lot to be desired. The hotel room had musty odor upon arrival. Overall impression was poor: the sheets were ripped on the side and the lamp shade on one of the lamps was as well. There was a significant amount of dust in the corners of the room. It left an overall impression that the room needed TLC. The name resort does not apply.

"The worst, most dirty hotel where I have ever stayed."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We had two rooms, both were filthy dirty and stunk like mold. Shower didn't work and tub filled up while trying to take a shower. I would not ever, ever stay there again.
