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.

The new water park in the resort is extremely convenient. Parking can be an issue if arriving at night

6/10 Good

4 hours of trying to sell us a timeshare. After we said no another lady came and tried selling us something else. Very upsetting on the first day. Neighbors were loud and left their garbage outside for 2 days. Other then that everything was okay.Also bars next to the pool were closed. Hard to find parking. Had to park far away from room. Room was nice once inside. Not very happy with stay

10/10 Exceptional

We overall had a good stay. We love the room it was a deluxe one bedroom. Only thing I don't care for is hearing neighbors doors slam and you can hear voices kids talking loud but they do finally go to sleep later at night. The restaurant there is rather expensive and also groceries so it's better to run to Walmart which is down the road

2/10 Poor

The hotel itself was very nice and clean. There are two issues I had with my stay. The first one is having to pay a resort fee per day and also having to pay $20 per day for the water park… not advertised anywhere on Hotels.com. My other issue is being manipulated into a 2.5 hour timeshare scam. They will bring you over to a “relations desk” and promise you all these goodies with no explanation of what you are doing. Super scheme vibes!
