Hotel staff was rude. The do not staff night attendants, so we had to be checked in by the security guard and he told us to simply check in with the front desk by 10AM. So went down right before 10AM to be told check out was 10AM and we'd be charged a fee for staying the extra 45 minutes I told them my wife would need to get ready. I told her I was appalled because I had never been charged a late checkout by a hotel before in my life to which she bragged that "we are not a hotel, we are a resort." I told her that she needed to tell Orbitz that because I requested a "hotel". She finally agreed to waive the fee. Then while we were getting showered and dressed to leave, they brought a dog into the room to check for bed bugs. Good grief. Another Holiday Inn franchise I will never stay at again.

The amenities especially the pool area and the kids play area were very nice! It was a great find!

Very good experience. Lots of things to do . Helpful staff . Short walk to beach or you can take the free hotel shuttle .

We were disappointed about many aspects of this property. The worst was finding another person's hair on our sheets the first night (GROSS!!). The staff was nice but clearly stretched too thin to respond to the needs of the guests. We had planned to cook some meals in out unit and were disappointed that 3 out of 4 burns on the stove did not work, the ice maker was not functioning, and there were almost no kitchen wares available to do even basic cooking. We were using the fold out couch for our daughter and no sheets, or bedding was provided. We had to call the desk and there was a long delay to get it. This was billed as sleeping 8 so the bedding should have been there on arrival. This property was very expensive for the quality of the experience. We would never stay here again.

After several days in Orlando, we were looking for a nice resort to kick back in and enjoy as a way to unwind at for a few days before returning home from vacation. When we arrived, we had to practically wade to our first floor room, located several hundred yards from the rest of the resort. When we entered the room, we got hit with a rush of stench similar to what you would expect from an old motel room. As we inspected the room, it was evident that the smell was likely from the carpet which was at least two decades old. I was convinced by my wife that we would get use to it, so we unloaded. As we put our belongings in the room, we had to kill two roaches, one in the bedroom and one in the bedroom closet. The kids took a look out back only to find a pack of 6 cats hanging out in the back yard. My oldest son is highly allergic to cats so he couldn't go outside. Without being asked we were put in a handicap room, which had a handicap shower in one bathroom. The water from the shower drained directly to a drain in the middle of that bathroom and I couldn't risk letting my young kids shower in there without falling. The other bathroom had tiny stand-up shower and a Jacuzzi tub. However, there was not any hot water in the Jacuzzi tub. Needless to say, I had to teach a 5 year old how to take a shower and we all had to share the tiny shower. The tile floors gave us black feet and another roach ended up in our laundry and we found it when we got home. Gross....gross!!

The whole place is short staffed. Restaurant: We waited 18 minutes before a waitress came despite 4 trips to the hostess. The whole breakfast took over an hour and 15 min. Dinner at the night before had items on the beer menu, you are no longer offering. We had prepaid breakfast only to learn that 3 items are not available for us. GM needs major training or needs to be replaced

Hotel has lots of amenities - nice pool, big water slide, lazy river, mini golf, movies, kids play area, organized activities, etc. short walk to the beach, but they also have a frequent shuttle. The restaurant was good, nothing great, but good and reasonable prices. The room was clean and comfortable. Really close to the port if you are cruising before or after.

Not expected, got relocated and ruined our bday party experience since the pool was too par from our room

My Wife and I got away for the first time in 10 years by ourselves. I called and worked with the people at the resort ahead of time to make sure we had a room with a view of the ocean. When we arrived our view was looking at the back of a sand dune. When I reported it to the staff they didn't care. Told my I ordered the wrong room.... Second day, we went out for the day exploring and expecting to return and enjoy the pool and the amenities like the lazy river.. NOPE - We arrived at about 8:00pm, (pool supposed to be open until 10:00) the entire facility was shut down and had been since 3:00pm.. On a Saturday.. We will not go back to this resort.. Our weekend getaway was basically ruined by this resort.

Yes, a 3 star resort but fabulous activities for kids and the entire family. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a Time Share that rents available space. Best supplied kitchen of any Time Share we have ever been to with full stove, refrigerator, toaster, microwave and tools. Only drawback was sleeping arrangements-two double beds in a tiny bedroom.

The hotel staff did a great job to cater to our needs. The staff was also very friendly. We were blown away by all the things there were to do at the Hotel. (water park, putt-putt, beach etc.)

Close to cruise ports. Great facilities. My kids loved the waterpark and the indoor playground that was open until 10 pm. Would stay here again.

They made me switch to a different room and said it was the law that I needed to be in a more expensive room. The property was nice but, that upset me a lot. Not sure I will be back based off of that alone.

Great place to stay, right near the beach! Only thing is that it is a little secluded and away from stores and restaurants so may need a car or take taxi to go places. But the restaurant was decent and the staff were friendly and helpful. Different activities such as mini golf, basketball court, movies and shows, as well as a nice pool and water slide to keep the kids busy and entertained. I highly recommend the magic show!

Everything was so clean and the staff was amazing! Anytime we needed something, they were on it. Our son loved all the fun things for him to do. We came here for four days after being at disney world for four days so that we could relax from that part of our vacation. Best decision ever! In fact, they offer timeshare here (didn't push a presentation on us) and we are thinking about doing it, even without having done a presentation. No matter what, we will absolutely be back here!

We stayed at Cape Caribe both before and after our cruise. Our 2 kids ages 8 & 10 loved the indoor obstacle course and we watched 1 movie in the theater. We left our car parked at the resort which worked well excet waiting for a shuttle bus to arrive after the cruise to take us back to the resort ( next time we will just take a cab). Timing to hang out at the beach & pool, get a burger poolside, and change before being shuttled to the cruise terminal worked great. Room was very clean and they let us use the room's beach towelles for the day even after we checked out. Restaurant was ok for lunch. Nice beach access with hoses to wash off stuff. We are staying there again in November.

It is great to go with the kids... It is an average hotel and nothing really special. They no longer serve breakfast in the hotel so you have to leave the grounds if you didn't bring food to the room.

Had so much fun we have 3 kids 3 and under it was perfect.
