So the rooms are small for one; they are ok but the floor in the bathroom was broken up and AC wasn’t the best. The housekeeping sometimes doesn’t show up. The Management is very poor; I reached out to them twice about housekeeping and they never contacted me back. The location is great, the pool and hot tub is nice but the only thing really extra offered for free is a shuttle to seaworld. Btw ignore the signs and bring your own beer to the pool area unless you want to pay alot.

Beautiful property and very friendly staff. We loved the pool and firefly restaurant bar. My only complaint would be the walls are very thin. You can hear a calm conversion with out trying. Room was clean no bugs. The shower was ok nothing amazing. The A/C is not in the main part of the room so it works ok but not great.

The location was great. The food was ok, the drinks were good. What wasn't good was the guy from the wedding party that was there puking all down the path infront if the rooms which was never cleaned up and we had to jump over it whenever we left the room. Or the hair ball left in the shower. Or the house keeping being so short staffed that it took almost 2 days to get toilet paper, towels, or hand soap. The saving grace was the location and the bar guy being so nice. The really need to work on getting better food and more staff.

It was a great location! Rooms are dated but clean. The Firefly had poor service and a chicken bone on the floor by our table, poor service. Somehow we lost our waiter and didn’t get service.
