The property was nice and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our shower was a little dingy and the workout room was small with only pieces of equipment that were difficult to use.

I really liked the outdoor theme. Not your standard hotel but an experience. We enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and will go back again to enjoy the resort experience in the future.
