Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
All amenities were closed up but the prices hadn’t changed to stay there. We actually brought in groceries just to have something to eat! I’m sure vivid hit them hard but it’s no longer worthy of the resort title.

Don’t waste your money.
Our hotel room door was already ajar upon arrival. Someone propped the door open with the lock. Upon entering the hotel room we immediately saw a plastic bag over the fire director. The room reeked of smoke. It was honestly hard to breath. The room was out of shower gel and there was someone else’s blood on the comforter. 0/5 stars, would not recommend.
Bag over the fire detector.
