The interior of the hotel is very dirty with no attention to detail, All the hallway carpets were disgusting and I would not let my dog sleep on them. The urinals were out of order, very seldom was there bathroom tissue or towels to dry your hands. Some toilet seats were missing or broken in the lobby, bar, and restaurant...

We were warned that this was a lower level resort but we wanted a great experience for our children and grandchildren and the grounds, magnificent beach, beautiful pools and amazing entertainment far exceeded our expectations. The grandkids can't wait to go back again next year.

The oval bowl on the toilet had a round seat attached, which was common throughout the resort. (Very awkward as...
