The staff (family, I believe) is very accommodating and pleasant but the overall condition of the property is very poor. Having read other negative comments I booked their top tier room and package (The "A" Plan) hoping for the best. The first room (#111) I was given was apparently used by a family of cats before I arrived. The smell was awful. The second room (311) was fine except, like the rest of the property, very old and worn. This is the type of family resort that was probably very popular and well maintained back when Carter was in office.
The breakfast and dinner was included with the "Plan A" package. I ate off premises. Enough said.
They did have good WI FI covering the entire resort including the outdoor areas.
