Okay, but dated
If you want to stay here because you're catching a concert, it's perfect. I wouldn't want to stay here more than two nights. The hotel could use an update - stained rugs everywhere, beat up furniture etc. The pool was sweet, the concert was great. I would stay again if passing through or for one or two nights.

4/10 Fair

Overpriced, unpleasant staff and ripped furniture
Rude, untrained and simply not-nice person at check in. Room details NOT honored. In fact, a "suite" (a higher charge on hotels.com) does not appear even available. Former Hhonors Diamond, I try to roll with the local vibe, but this was just an unpleasant person. Room had multiple pieces of furniture with ripped upholstery, and refrigerator whistled (? - so strange) all night and kept us awake. Artwork lovely and support staff working hard. Given the local market, this property is not at all competitive in terms of overall experience, value and/or room quality.

10/10 Exceptional

Great place to stay - rooms were beautiful and clean. Loved that we had furniture on the balcony and a beautiful view. Only negative thing would be choices of places to eat, like almost everywhere else at this time, restaurants were either not open or limited time frames. Also, even though we were there on a Friday night, the lounge was not open, so that was also a downside.

Nice but Overpriced
The resort itself is beautifully decorated and has beautiful views. All staff we interacted with were very friendly. Food and drinks were good at all the restaurants. The room was nice but definitely not worth the price. The mattress was a little too hard for my liking. AC didn't work so the room got uncomfortably warm. We were going to take our chihuahua but we were told the pet fee would be $75 per night so we found a sitter for her instead. Overall I would say it was nice but overpriced.
