The place looked cute from the outside. Individual adobe cabins with picnic tables outside each, so we decided to give it a shot (2 adults, 3 kids). The size of the place was fine, and it had a little kitchenette. The problem was the smell. Very musty. So much so that I didn't want to be there a second longer than I had to. The bedding was very old, and the carpet needed replacing. The pool looked too run down to use.
The place has a ton of potential. It would be great if they could just do a little renovating and airing out. Until then, I wouldn't go back.
