Well, it started out kind of disappointing, but by the end, we had a great time! If you open your mind and enjoy the vibe, you will laugh until your stomach hurts.
Initially, I was disappointed with our room and the dated facilities. We were placed in the 4000 block. We requested to be near the quiet pool. Our view was the street. We offered to pay more, but the rooms they showed us still overlooked the street. I like to have cocktails on the patio, but we spent no time there due to the poor location. Everything was clean in the room, but it was a little musty. By the ocean, you expect that. The maid was great--towel animals.
The food was excellent! From the buffet to the Italian and Asian restaurants, there was great variety and attention to detail. The Mexican restaurant was also good for lunch. The vibe in the Italian and Asian restaurants was romantic, and the servers were attentive. We liked to dine early, so we were usually there for dinner before the restaurants were full.
Two highlights for the entertainment was the foam party and the strip show. We were active participants, so it was a great time! We also enjoyed the karaoke night. We spent our after dinner hours at the sports bar playing ping pong and mingling. Then we generally went to the evening entertainment. Paty-O's was loud and crowded, and that is not our scene, so we spent little time there.
If you overlook the dated facilities, and are able to relax into it, you will have an unforgettable vacation!
