    The room was very cute and whimsical - we had the fifties room - it was very clean and comfortable. The food was great at the restaurant and everyone was friendly.

    I had no complaints

    Nothing

    After paying more than $250 per night, these cheapskates wanted to charge us for two extra bottles of water!!! Think about that!!! I'll never return and tell others not to either. And further, the pool was closed so early in the evening we didn't have a chance to take advantage of it.
