4/10 Fair

Time share
This is a time share resort. As soon as you check in you are taken without explanation to another desk where you are signed up for breakfast and the presentation. I tried to say no but was told it was just breakfast with lots of food and would only be an hour. This was not true. You have to go through the presentation. I also was put in a room with construction right outside my window which started at 7:30 am on Saturday and Sunday. I complained both mornings but was told they would look into it with engineering. No offer to change my room or do anything about it. I asked for a later check out and was told no. The pools you see in the picture is their “water park” which there is a charge for, it is not included.

No elevator was a real problem
Our stay was really almost ruined because they put us in a 6th floor room with no elevator the first day. Using stairs was not really an option because both my wife and I have knee issues They knowingly put us in a room on 6th floor and knew that there was no elevator. Would not switch our room to a lower floor

Our keys weren't activated but Ruben(the man helping us) was AMAZING! he went an got us new card right away and also gave us a tour of our room once entered. It's a little nosey near the water park during the day but at night it was quiet as can be. Our jets in our tub didn't work but it was still nice none the less
