2/5 Poor

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We were extremely disappointed by our stay. The pool is nice but small and the lifeguards spent all of their time seated and chatting with each other - not actually guarding. There was no one on the big slide either so kids were crashing into each other on the slide which was extremely unsafe for our family to go on. The service at the restaurant was great - the waitress and bartender were fantastic and the service at the counter for check-in was great. The room (A king's suite) was nothing extraordinary. The bathroom looked like it needed to be repainted or had just been painted and was done sloppily. The bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable. The comforter and pillows were so old that the plushy-ness inside of them had pilled up and were hard and lumpy. The room itself felt very dated and needing updates. The stairwell was nice and warm on the way to the pool. When I bought the hotel, it stated that warm breakfast was included but due to COVID, breakfast was a "pick up and go" kind of breakfast with a juice box and breakfast bar and it was pretty awful. Would have paid a little more to have an actual breakfast. At least the waterpark was part of our stay. MANY people at check-in were told their reservation did not include the water park and had to pay extra. It should just automatically be part of every stay. We don't plan on staying again. It was a nice experiment though.
