This property is beat and run down! Pictures on line are not reflecting current conditions! The pool area was dirty and the jacuzzi had so much chlorine in it our eyes burt as soon as we lifted the cover. The breakfast was decent however, the staff needs to be trained to clean each table as folks leave leaving a clean surface for the next person. The property needs alot of work to get in back into a "Resort" status. We left the property early and got accomodations elsewhere to finish out our vacation. Not fun getting deseaved by photos online. Never to return!
We enjoyed the full breakfast each morning. The views of the harbor are beautiful. The available canoe, kayaks and paddle boards was a plus. The room had a special 'makeup' washcloth in a dark gray color ..very nice touch. From mini golf to campfires... wonderful family experience.
Cobwebs all over the room, very dim lights in the room. Coffee machine in the room did not work. Terrible parking. Room phone to front desk did not work. Very large hole in balcony roof. No towels for the pool, container was empty. However there was good yogurt in the morning. No flavored coffee, no out or almond milk, no way to do cappuccino or latte if you like that type. Minimal kayaks and canoes, no way to reserve, first come first serve. Fire pit disappointing. At $300 plus per night, this resort was definitely more like a Howard Johnsons.
