The pool was full of dead grass clippings and the poolside had overgrown weeds all around plus sucker trees growing thru the fence. It looked as tho the place had been deserted. Wouldn’t spend money to go here again.

The pool is large and has different temperature areas. There is a hot area in the center that great to hangout at. It is nice not to have wear a bathing suit.
