Great Place to Stay
Stayed 4 nights. Weather was beautiful! It rained either at dusk or dawn for less that a half hour each. Well supplied rooms. Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel in wall dispensers. Good blow dryer with a night light built in. No need to bring any of the above. Vanity, sewing, toothbrush, shoe polish kits provided. Double sinks with PLENTY of counter space in between. Sink area separate from toilet/shower. Toilet/shower area needs updating and enlarging. Rest of the room is fine. Comfortable beds and a variety of pillow sizes. Refrigerator with complimentary beverages. DO NOT DRINK THE TAP WATER! Plenty of bottled water is available and provided. The ENTERTAINMENT TEAM was THE BEST! They tried to encourage you to take part, but left you alone, if you were insistent. Good variety of fitness activities. Friendly and knowledgable staff. LOVED the spinning class in the pool and the fitness dancing. Good nightly shows, but don't expect broadway quality. For a resort, they were excellent. Hard working performers.Property was beautiful & well maintained. Beach cleared of seaweed daily. Pool very clean.
Lots to do: Games, shows, mini golf, bowling, casino, disco, water sports. billiards, ping pong.
Guest services: Too long of a wait. Need more staff here. Told on first day dinner was only available at 11pm & we had to return at 6:30 to see if they could fit us in. They did, but restaurant was more than half empty the entire time we were there. So why did they need to "fit us in"?
