Stayed here for seven nights as the first leg of a three part trip, checking in was a breeze reception staff were very helpful throughout my stay, If you have a young family the pool areas is great with a heated pool a beach area and wet play area,Rooms are ok nothing fancy but very comfortable, If your a light sleeper ask for a room away from the I4 as it can get a bit noisy. The only real downside for me was the breakfast just not my taste the hash browns were just to hard and not having a plate just a box is a no no for me Read less

This resort is not a resort. It’s a raggedy hotel. Overpriced and nothing to do there but use the pool. Resorts are supposed to have other things to do besides swim in a pool. The staff is rude and I will never stay there again

So me and my mum stayed for 10 nights and had previously stayed at the Rosen down the way but thought we would upgrade! Well it was a downgrade. The only plus side was the security to the pool and rooms. On arrival we were greeted promptly and basic information was explained. Upon arriving in room it was ground floor - not great with two ladies on their own. Anyway we had two beds - brilliant until sleeping on them and they made the worst noises. Fridge was sufficent and a microwave which we would not wish to use as not cleaned. Then the safe - right by front door not hidden at all - great security. Also no wardrobe just a pole with a few hangers and two drawers under microwave. Really not sufficent for two people let alone any more. The toilet/bathroom was disgusting - the fan was broken and there was mould behind it, the toilet was stained and did not flush well at all. The floor had rubbish in it and the bath was just disgusting. The towels given were also not very clean and had dirty marks on them. The pool was nice although prepare for many children screaming! No breakfast is included and a bottle of small water was $3.46 inc TAX whereas a massive bottle from Walgreens was less than that! You also needed to ask for extra cups if you used them and also toilet roll as they were not replaced. The concierge when there are mostly helpful but get them when you can. Also the desk staff were standard - not very helpful. Overall will def not be paying them another visit. Read less

we stayed in this hotel for 3 days and had a good time. The rooms and the pool area were clean and we liked it. The bartender Elijah was super nice and mixed great drinks. The concierge „Claudia“ was very helpful.
