If you are looking for a random hotel to sleep at or a place to golf or gamble, this place is fine. The room was clean, shower was nice, bed was adequate, check in staff pleasant. But as a resort, it’s pretty bad. I was here for a few nights for a conference.
—There is nowhere to walk. No walking paths on the hotel site. I was told by staff that the golf course is off limits to walkers. Staff suggested I walk out on the main road which has no sidewalk. After dodging cars, bikes, and roadside trash for about a quarter mile I gave up.
—The fitness center is very poor. There are some decent cardio machines but not much else. No weights.
—People smoke in the casino so the whole lobby area smells of smoke. Its not super strong but you can smell it.
— You’re not going to get souvenirs for your kids at the gift shop. They sell cigars, cigarettes, energy drinks, gold rings, and some random toiletries.
—The pool is pretty nice and quite large. I would prefer a lifeguard with a pool that size. Poolside cabanas rent for $150/day, $250 on weekends. This is for an awning, two chairs, and bottled water.
—The food is bad and very meaty. If you are a vegetarian, bring lots of granola bars. They do have a banana nut risotto (???) on one of the menus for $36.
My advice for this establishment is to put in a walking trail around the perimeter and a decent fitness center on an upper floor with a view.
