my family and I had great expectations for this resort but unfortunately we are very disappointed. 1. the room is pretty small, the pictures don't reveal the real size (the price paid is excessive for a room of this size), 2. the sofa mattress is in terrible condition 3. the toilet seat was almost ripped off 4. there are not enough parking and the worst part, we choose this resort over a dozen of resorts with better prices because the water park and surprise the resort never mentioned that you have to paid extra ($20 per person) to be able to go and enjoy the water park,. in conclusion we feel like we pay a lot for less. we will never recommend this resort ever.
