This place is NOt kid friendly at all-we asked before we went b/c we do enjoy taking our children with us places. We had to ASK 24 hours after arrival for the promised wine/cheese. There are NO modern conveniences oterh than heat/air. Everyone there was DRUNK and beligirent and the staff refused to do anythign about us being kept up until 3am by the people on both sides of us. As long as you want to spend a fortune on alcohol, they will LOVE you and treat you great. You can disturb anyone you please and the will kiss your rear. BUT if you really want a NICE relaxing vacation without being drunk or putting up with drunks, this is NOT the place for you. Instead of saying ANYTHING to the people who kept us up, we were told it was THEIR perogative to be drunk and disorderly, we were scolded for suppsoedly making a 71m phoen call and waking tehse same people up? Really, we were sleeping since they kept us up til 3am and even IF we made a phone call at 71am, this would be a problem where WE should be chastised WHY? THEN they overcharged us for a full extra meal on our ticket for food that was NOT fit to eat. Not sure who said the food was superb, perhaps if you are too intoxicated to tell the difference..The chepaest thing on menu is chicken with mashed potatoes and it was a thigh and leg SO TINY, I swear it was quail, not chicken and the garlic mashed potatoes were SO bad that I could not even eat them. Also, $5 for a baked potato for my son that was roughly the size of.a pool table ball To sum it up, we CAUGHT the fish we ate, so they were free and dinner was STILL over $100 with no alcohol purchased. Teh mac and cheese was so bad that my daughter told the chef he forgot the cheese. It was dried out noodles with some dry shredded cheese sprinkled on top. So, my "chicken" plate, our fish, 6 crablegs. a baked potato and order of mac & Cheese=$100. ANd again, did I mention, they did NOTHING about our complaints but complained about US and the nonexistent 7am phone call we made? NO tv, no phone, no fridge, no microwave, wifi if you want to sit on top of the office, shower only, no tub, cracks in the walls b/w the rooms, ONLY 2 towels for 4 people in a room.. NO ice to put in your ice bucket unless you want to get it from the KILL room ice machine? FAR from relaxing or a resort. and NEVER plan to take your family. Again, great place if you want to go kick back and stay drunk, but THAt is about it.
