The line to check in was long and slow. The gentleman that was working did a good job under the circumstances. Only 1person on desk most of the time.

This was our first time staying at this hotel and we were pleasantly surprised! This is an expansive property with a lot of hallways on the main level that lead to all sorts of things. We didn't explore them but on our next stay we definitely will. The room was clean, the kitchenette was stocked with utensils, glassware, plates, and bowls. Our ocean front room had a great view of the ocean and we were not anywhere near any tourist noises and kids playing. Now to bad stuff. The parking situation is horrific. You have 2 lots to choose from and a covered parking garage. They fill up quickly, so if you head back to your hotel during the evening, you may to do some serious driving around to find a parking spot or hope someone leaves and you can take their spot. Luckily all 3 parking locations were steps away from the hotel. 2 across the street, and the covered parking garage was just steps away on the corner. Our TV in the room was super small so where my husband and I had to sit on the edge of the bed to view it and it was still a bit of a struggle. Other then that, our stay was perfect.

Lobby was nice. But the absolute worst resort ever to stay at. People unruly at the pool. Elevators and game room had no air conditioning at all in 92 degree heat and it took our breaths. Plus my kids lost countless money in the game rooms to be told they are third party we can’t do anything. The rooms were so narrrow you can’t get a cart inside the room to unload and load things up. It was like a maze trying to get to our room. Horrible design and horrible setup. Very long waits on the elevator to get off the 11th floor down to the 1st floor. Aside from the lobby which was nice everything else in the hotel is ran down and not upgraded at all. Room wasn’t furnished as promised. Hotel staff was rude asking me to park across the street letting others park in the 15 minute parking all night. I wouldn’t stay at this resort again for free it was so horrible. I literally counted the hours until checkout so I could leave and head myself home it was so bad.

Property is rundown and not clean. Definitely not up to the 4 star rating it claims. It would barely be a 2 star. The few amenities it has all close early. Even the bar closes as 10. Not worth the price.
