They do not have anything “VIP Access” at this hotel. Nothing is accepted/recommended for “Expedia VIP access” members. Bigger pool with bar/“lazy river” was partially closed.

Very dated and needs alot of work. This is now more like a 1 star horel. The pics online are deceitful. To Make matters worse, the front desk staff are mean. The hotel halls smell like bug spray and mildew. The bathroom is really bad. I don't recommend this place.

I got double charged on my deposit fee so the resort compensated with waiving the resort and parking fee but the process of resolving the issue wasn't professional and friendly. Overall resort was in very good location with many pools. Unfortunately, the big pool wasn't heated and it was big cold when we were there so we weren't able to enjoy that. However, the other mini pool was heated.

We loved the atmosphere of the Island. The staff was very friendly. There were lots of activities to do. We didn’t like that there was an extra charge for everything, parking, resort fee, the prices for breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc. we didn’t like that there was no space in the rooms to put your clothing.

The property was very nice. Enjoyed the beach and the pool. There was very little water pressure in the shower, and the shower head leaked.

I loved the property itself, but the floors in the rooms were really dirty and sandy. All the staff was amazing! The beach chair rentals need severe updating. The chairs are old and hard to sit in, especially someone with a bad back. No padding and cant lay flat. Such a shame for a gorgeous property.
