The parking lot is very dark at night. Too dark. I was in a two bedroom suite. It would have been nice to have some paper towels. Maybe some cups and silver ware in the kitchen area. The stairs in the water park need to be cleaned. The garbage cans were over flowing in the restaurant area in the afternoon and first thing in the morning.

It is a great place for family. We were somewhat disappointed in the room in things such as the bathrooms had no towel bars or hooks. Our room was never made up and we had to ask for more towels, coffee, etc everyday. In the three nights we were there, our rooms were never made up.
