2/10 Poor

Miserable experience
Miserable experience. Hotel room was very small, kitchen table was unsteady, bathroom sink was clogged, bed was hard, tv power went out, understandable because of a storm (no tv all night), no internet in the morning. When I called to complain the manager acted like I was lying and then said she would call me back in the afternoon. That was Thursday, it’s now Saturday and haven’t received a call yet. The restaurant that is attached is miserable as well. Worst dining experience of my life coupled with it being the most expensive. The food was either over cooked or under cooked. No bread, water tasted like it was from the sink. No attention to detail, needs new management.

Was not aware that you had to purchase beach tags and beach umbrellas and need to bring your own towels to beach. The gym and game room temperature too warm to enjoy. We should have been informed of this when we checked in

6/10 Good

Reasonable but not worth the price.
It is a reasonable place, but for the price we paid average 450 dollars a night. We were expecting something nicer. We paid a 4 star above price for a 3 star experience essentially.
