Stayed here for 5 nights, staff are friendly and helpful, but half the time they do not know what happening when you ask them something, they look at each other. The tour office at the lobby is another one of those that open and close as they wish, they do not adhere to the

We do not want our room to be close to the dining area near the pool. October 6th arrival.
Plenty of rooms that are away from the dining and pool area.

Hi. We do not want our room near the dining area at the pool please.
The dining area is at one end of the pool, and the bar (occasionally with music) is sort of towards the other. You can opt not to look at the pool at all and get an room closer to the casino, on the driveway that leads to the street. No view, but no pool noise. On the other hand, I had a second floor room overlooking the non-food end of the pool and wasn't bothered by music or pool crowd noise. However, I usually was out during happy hour, and returned about 7 pm.

"you have to climb stairs to get to the pool/bar /dining area,so ground floor is best."
"Personally I wouldn't choose the pool level rooms."
"rooms on level one have faster internet"
"Ground floor step out to pool area"
"ground floor rooms are noisier but have a great poolside vibe."
US$68 - US$122 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
