I had a serious knee injury a week before my trip but had OK from doctor to go since I paid for airfare and would lose out. The staff was great: Wayne, director of guest services personally drove me from check-in to my room. Brent of guest services did follow-up and noted that my friend arrived on a later flight...

Although the weather wasn't very spring like we found plenty to do. The rooms were sufficient, it was nice to have a kitchenette so you didn't have to eat every meal out. There was some construction but there were still pleanty of pools open. We enjoyed the water slides. Every room has an ocean view.

After getting checked in we drive back over to the resort and began bringing all of our belongings by hand up to the 8th floor. That dossnt sound like a lot? We had to make 4 trips because...

Looks great from the outside. Rooms are just ok but are in need of maintenance. AC/Heat unit kept shorting out, walls were painted over wallpaper and were peeling. Hallways, elevators are dirty. Buffet breakfast was good.

Paid ridiculous resort fee, which would be fine if the hotel was fully functional. Construction all on the first floor, pools closed due to hurricane damage from October. Rooms need major overhaul...run down! Very disappointed. Will not be coming back!

When I booked this over the phone, the lady made sure to mention all of the pools they had. When we got there, the pool in our tower (tower 2), was closed for repair, along with the lazy river. This was never mentioned in the call. The master bed was terrible. It slopped to the middle, so unless you stayed...

We stayed bc It's across the street from the convention center. It was extremely accessibly to what we needed. The rooms are not very clean, and walls very thin but adequate for what we needed. The hotel is old but it is ocean front. So watching the ocean at night was great. The loco gecko food is average. Drinks were...

A little disappointed in resort. No communication to us about construction prior to arrival. Our original reservation was not available upon arrival. Rooms seem a little run down and need a refresh. Overall an okay place to stay. Check about construction before booking. When construction is done the outdoor part of the resort will be great. Price during construction a...
