We had an excellent time! The paint in the shower was peeling off of the ceiling and one of our shower heads was broken. The bed skirt was dirty from the time we got there until the time we left and we could tell the sheets were being changed on the bed, but sometimes had stains on them. I wouldn’t have used the jacuzzi tub anyways, but I did not feel like it had been cleaned well. Staff was AMAZING, very friendly & accommodating. Shows were very good. We don’t have kids but did notice the kids activities were the same every day.
