First of all let's talk about the cleanliness... the rooms were impeccable and clean and they did a great job here. The resort is not represented by its pictures. It is a $99 a night hotel. Do not under any circumstances rent one of the houseboats. They are circa 1980s and beat up . The staff here however is excellent....

My girlfriend and I stayed at Smugglers Cove for 4 nights over an extended weekend in early March. We could not be happier with our stay. The room it self was incredibly clean and stocked with towels and other bathroom essentials. We had our dog so we asked that the house keeping staff stay away while we were away. Never...

Place is old, and dated. We wanted to cancel right away since it was not what we expected. The bar is loud and rooms are close, no pool and no swimming area and looks run down. We were so tires but were forced to listen to the lady "sing" when trying to sleep. When we were displeased with it and...

There was mold on the walls, our door wouldn't lock, and their was no central AC, only a wall unit. The bathroom was so hot and disgusting. The price was almost $300 for a really crappy motel. It felt as if we were going to get robbed at any time. Super creepy.

David greeted us with enthusiasm and got us set up quickly even tho we were late to check in. Matthew showed us an amazing time both in the bar and even took some of us out on...

I didn't expect a top notch place but when they say Resort, I expected a little more than a building that looked like low income housing. The room was spacious, but not modern. I kept telling myself housekeeping did the best with what they had to work with-but when we returned after spending the day fishing, housekeeping had opened the...

We will definitely be back to stay! Everyone was so friendly, that we felt like family. Everything you need is right there, with tons to do, and great food, that is very reasonably priced. The room was very clean, and accommodating, We will highly recommend to all our family and friends. Can't wait to go back!
