The resort itself is average but we did have issues with a manager named Corey. We were charged more than the booking price when we arrived and had quite a time getting a refund. Our original cabin had known electrical issues and the fuse box blew every time we used the stove and we had an argument from Corey that... More

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to review our resort. We realize that certain guests who made their reservation far in advance of their arrival date saw a deviation in their rate, as we increased the rates of our resort to meet industry standard this summer. We sent emails to our guests far prior to arrival so they... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the resort. We stayed in a very nice 2 bedroom cabin that was clean, specious and updated. The property is very peaceful, surrounded by trees and just a few minute walk to the ocean and a number of beaches. The staff were amazing! Friendly, helpful and eager to make sure we were comfortable. We... More

We booked in January 2016 for 3 nights in August and were quoted $144. per night plus taxes. Paid for the first night via Credit Card & received a receipt at that time.

Good Morning, I understand that when you originally made your reservation, in January of 2016 our rates were at a rate far to low for our type of facility, as compared to similar properties in the area. We did amend the rates to reflect the industry standard, in the area, in June of 2016. We knew that , because of... More

I would give this place 3.5 stars if allowed. Great place for families with young children. The word "resort" should be interpreted as a campground type resort. There are lots of activities to keep kids busy. Pros: Our "cabin" was spacious (although attached to other units) Fun waterslide, mini golf, and playground Communal backyard behind cabins where kids can play... More

Thank you for taking time to review our lovely resort. We understand that when you stayed with us it, was in the middle of the peak season for us, and our park was at its busiest period of the summer season. All of our guests, at that period of the season, are sometimes so involved in having a good time,... More

The fact that we had to sign a contract agreeing to pay for majority of the nights booked the minute we arrived should have been a warning sign! They must get lots of people turn up & immediately want to leave - like we did. Our town house was very dated, the blinds were absolutely filthy, the bedroom smelled musty... More

Worst customer service from beginning to end when we packed up and left as they gave our 2nd site for family away. They even phoned to confirm our 2 sites 2 weeks prior. Worst we have ever experienced and we can a lot.
