The girls at the desk were great. The only bad part of the stay was the woman in charge of breakfast in the morning. She was just downright rude to everyone. Never a smile, always a frown and very very short with some of the guests. She really made it so you really didn't want to have breakfast there. Other than that the resort was fabulous.

I like the cleanliness. Customer service is not efficient

Smoky, ill-kept, and loud. Fire alarms went off repeatedly early Sunday morning as guests were smoking in their rooms. Not worth the price.

This is our third visit to this hotel and we've enjoyed each stay. They have a little complimentary breakfast during the week that is enough to get you going, boiled eggs, sausage as well as the usual cereal and yogurt. Try to get a room on a higher floor overlooking the entertainment area and the water. We didn't feel we even needed the balcony, the view was nice enough. Room was nice and clean, with plenty of space. The staff here are very friendly and helpful, free parking.

Nice so far going to the spa tomorrow everybody so far has been nice and helpful

We stayed in a room with two double beds. The Hotel was very nice but the restaurant (rod n reel) had a terrible dinner. Would of rather eaten Fast food. The bed was not comfortable the shower pressure was great and the water got very hot and the hotel atmosphere was very nice and the view from our room was very beautiful. Would recommend for a nice romantic weekend but go to another restaurant other than the one associated with the hotel. The bar was ok tap beer was nice and cold and prices were fair but the service at the rod n reel was not great my fish was over cooked and chewy and my macaroni and cheese side was cold and had to be sent back, after being sent back it was replaced and I was told that they just made a new batch ( which means I had gotten the end of the old batch) very disappointed this restaurant should definitely not have 4 stars.

I've stayed a lot of places and this one is slightly better than average. There are many dining options either on the premises or very close by. I recommend Traders bar. Plan on finding something for breakfast because the "continental" breakfast is pathetic if stocked at all. There is a stage for live performances at the outdoor bar on the resort that was active 2 nights out of the 5 we stayed. Parking was a little walk from the hotel. They offer valet but I did not take advantage. The town is neat, and offers nice views of the harbors, boats, and a couple of beaches. Water park near by is fun but pricey.

It was ok. Room wasn't dirty but was definetly dated. AC made the room smell musty. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Hotel was clean, staff was friendly, checking in & out was quick. The only disappointing thing was the room I saw on line & thought was booked was not the same. Still satisfied. Also way too hot out did not get to enjoy the beach & Café & music venue was cancelled.

Great Value for Money. Spent one night with family and everything was great. View of the bay is nice and my son enjoyed the train/trolley ride that goes around the parking lot.

Stay was better than expected. Location was good, room very clean, staff ultra friendly.

No access to the water. There is no beach. The food was overpriced and overcooked. The staff was friendly. But with no water access no beach overpriced and over cook food it was not worth the trip.

Good location for a quick overnight getaway. close to water park, beach and food. clean room. ok for the money.

Perfect place for a family vacation. Strongly recomend this

The room was very nice, I enjoyed the view from the balcony and the staff was curtious and helpful when asking questions. Will probably stay again later in the summer.
