No issue with our room. It was quite nice, clean and the AC was awesome. There were very few people at the resort. We arrived Monday, May 1. Check in was hassle free and our luggage was delivered in record time. Seaside Grill was open and the food was good. So great first impression. Now, for the negatives. It's Thursday...
