Friendly staff,clean,problem solved quickly. It rained while I was there and my room 'leaked' from the ceiling. They quickly moved me to another room and it must have been 3 times bigger than my original room.
Seems like it was a LONG way from the elevator to my room and as far as I know, only 1 elevator. I didn't mind the walk but it was a good distance from the elevator
No bath tub in room.
Liked the new rooms,very friendly staff. Satisfied with this hotel for the price.
Room was refreshed but would of been nice to have the beds made the next day.
Kids love the water park. The room is nicely decorated.
The shower curtain smells.
The pool hours
The pools were nice, the kids enjoyed them
The beds were not comfortable
Love the concept of the pirate ship water park but it was not as clean or well maintained as we hoped. Floor by pool seating was a little slimy, chunks of the fake palm trees missing, water slide stairs covered with rust stains. expensive.
Neither remote worked for the televisions sets, and the chlorine smell from the pool was in the room. Other than that, it was fine.
Waterpark, clean comfortable room
Beautiful didn't wan5 to leave. Staff was great.
Everything was fine
Menu for room service is very limited.
Tiki bar, the food was good
No continental breakfast and the breakfast buffet was the equivalent of a Continental breakfast at any other hotel. drunk people everywhere, paper thin walls, would not recommend
Convenient location and family friendly.
Not soundproof rooms. We could hear doors slamming throughout the night.
