We had a room that felt old musty and in a dark corner of the resort. Super expensive for a really dank dark room. Beds were not comfortable and the room was truly disappointing. Parking charge was outrageous and resort fee is ridiculous too.

We only stayed for one night but check in was very problematic. They are way understaffed at the front desk. After waiting 45 minutes in line, they told us our room was not ready and they would call us when we could check in. They never called. Back to the line for another 45 minutes and finally we got our room. The hotel is made up of 3 separate buildings. The problem is one building has laundry facilities and the other far building has the 3 soda machines. So if either of these amenities are important to you make sure your room is located in the right building otherwise you will be hiking around. Their wake up call system does not work so thank goodness we set an alarm on our phones otherwise we could have missed our plane. The room was nice enough but if you are on the street side be prepared for street noise deep into the night.
