Finding out room was a little confusing and it took someone coming to help to help us in our room. Our keys weren't activated but Ruben(the man helping us) was AMAZING! he went an got us new card right away and also gave us a tour of our room once entered. It's a little nosey near the water park during the day but at night it was quiet as can be. Our jets in our tub didn't work but it was still nice none the less

4/10 Fair

Not good
I have stayed at this property several times and this was the worst visit. First, the shower was difficult to turn on and the shower head leaked the entire stay. I called for someone to fix it but it was not fixed. The wifi kept disconnecting while trying to watch videos on my iPad. Also, every morning I was there I was awakened by either a lawnmower or a blower. The rooms are starting to show their age.

Every amenity costs more money
This is a Time Share resort. Every amenity costs more money. The water park is $20 per person. Hallway alarms going off all day/night. Vacationers are very loud coming and going. Not a relaxing place for vacation. Bring lots of money to enjoy the amenities.

Rude hotel
They push timeshare stuff on family too heavy. And when you decline They retaliate on you. They don't have manners to greet you in the morning.
