Uncomfortable stay
The noise level from the pool kept us awake my child could not get to bed.The pool closure time should be brought earlier than 10pm.There should be more activities for the kids the game room as advertised was not found on the property.The wet floors of residents going up and down from beach and pool hazardous ,cleaners should be on duty to attend to this,it was always filthy.My bathroom ceiling was broken and there was no filter to dry our bathroom up after taking a shower too much dampness.
