Parking was a nightmare.Automatic arm didn't work (twice) and there was no one on duty to resolve the issue. I literally spent 20 minutes stuck in the lot while other cars piled in behind me. It wasn't just me either because the guy behind me got out of his vehicle and had the same issues.I was embarrassed for them.
The pool boast a zip line for the kids. It is literally 10' and the experience last 1-2 seconds tops.
The lazy river has more people than tubes.
The beers are $7 each and the margaritas are straight syrup.
On top of the 18 per day resort fee you get to pay an additional $35 to go to the pool area where you can pay $16 for sunscreen.
The lockers are state of the art but they do not provide directions on how to access them.
Planes take-off from DFW Airport and literally run directly over the top of the resort so you get to hear the roar of 747's all night long.
Over all an extremely disappoint experience with a hefty Texas price tag.
