Nay on Cabana Cay!!
It was ok but for a upscale hotel/resort it should have been better. This was our first stay at Cabana Cay and we expected much better room conditions. We have stayed two times at Endless Summer Resort and I would give that resort 5 stars. Outstanding service and customer friendly. Will not stay at Cabana Cay again will only stay at Endless Summer Resort

Don't expect much
For the price paid, the amenities were underwhelming. Small televisions, small rooms. There wasn't even body wash and shampoo in the bathroom, just a basic old bar of Zest soap. Seriously, I've stayed at a Motel 6 that was better. For what I paid for, I would have at, least expected the on-site amenities such as bowling and tube rentals for the lazy river to have been included but, nope...gotta pay for those too! The food in the diner was just over-priced park food and the eating area was rarely clean requiring one to hunt for a usable table. In short, it would have been a better trip to stay at a nicer hotel with cheaper rates and just used the extra funds to pay for valet parking at the park. It's obvious that the purpose of these "resorts" is to pack as many as possible in and get as much money as possible out. The refrigerator started making horrible noise at 1:30AM the last nigh of our stay. When we go up, all of the food we had in there was warm and had to be thrown away. During check out, the TV menu would not allow you to do express checkout. Thankfully I still had the text that was sent when we checked in and I was able to use that. When leaving, our room key and the keys of several other guests would not operate the exit gate resulting in a traffic jam. It was only due to one guest who's key worked being nice enough to let us all out the we were even able to leave.

Never again
It took over 90 minutes to check in standing in a line. When I finally finished check in they did not set up charging on my key card so had to go back in line and get it set up. The vent in the bathroom did not work and the closet door kept coming off track. Worst experience ever and I have traveled a lot. But they were quick to take my money and charged me more at every turn.
