Room with view was great but the door leading to the balcony wouldnt open because there was a broken lock. We told staff three times before it was fixed. We were ready to check in at 3:15. Registration told us our room was ready and asked if we wanted to pay $25 for the early check in before 4 pm. I felt that was very greedy. Our room was ready but they wanted more money. Bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet.

Somehow there is a $15 resort fee that showed up on the bill without any notice or explanation!

Understaffed facility. Slow check in, room was moderately clean at best, young staff running “events” for resort itinerary unhelpful and unsure of how to run movie as scheduled. Hallways and lobby FREEZING cold.

Liked the resort. The person checking us in didn't go through much with us as far as what we could do or what was offered. No one was waiting behind us and he rushed the check in. The hotel room was nice, however the carpeted hallways needed a good vacuum! In the common area between the numbered buildings was a nice seating area for waiting, however they needed to be cleaned. There was a towel on the floor for the two days we were there. Great location, nice docks to sit by, cute resort. Needs better upkeep with cleaning.
