Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The fact that there were no amenities like swimming pool, continetal breakfast, misleading on the beach, was bad enough. But then the resort itself was shabby looking with worn blankets that had holes in them. And the price was to high for all that was missing

The hotel was not clean or up to date. It was loud at night and there was no breakfast served on site. It is more of a party hotel then family oriented.Not happy at all considering the price of the hotel. Rooms were out of date, beds were uncomfortable, and bathroom needs work. Toilet ran all night and had little water pressure in shower. Floor felt dirty.

Weeend getaway
Very nice and relaxing, 2nd stay here opted for room with lake view this time. Wish they had a keurig should have brought mine. Coffee at donut shop by resort was not to my taste. They have their own dock you can tie your boat too and leave it for your stay.
