Last minute trip in the middle of peak season, it was the first vacancy we found. The two young ladies at the desk, Monica and Tiffany I think, were a pleasure. They only had one room left, and even though they were busy, Tiffany took the time to show us the room, and explain that the balcony is not private, and the room is a little dated. She was very nice, and honestly, we would not have rented the room if it had not been for her helpfulness. Don't expect much with the lodging in room 135, but do plan to have a nice time. The hotel goes out of its way to make your stay pleasant. Activities every day, and everyone is nice, even though they were very busy. If you are wanting a beautiful room, with granite counter tops, and fancy showers, etc - book a condo early. If you are happy in a motel 6 type room, but convenient to everything, and a staff that sincerely seems to want you to enjoy yourself - then this is the place. I suspect our room was one of the worse, being last minute and all - but we have stayed at many condos and hotels in the area, and we were happy and had a great time. A couple of suggestions - put a string or something around the keys to help make it easier to keep up with, and I would have liked a little light music around the pool area.
