This resort has many amenities to choose from. Made my stay that more enjoyable. Spent a day at the spa, played some games. Then finished the night with a nice romantic dinner at one of their restaurants. Room was clean & comfortable. Checking in & checking out was so convenient. Overall satisfied with everything this resort has to offer.

We checked into the hotel around 6pm to meet some feiends for a fun night at the property. When we got into the room it absolutely had the worst oder, like BO or pesticides. We were late to meet oir friends so we thought by running the air a bit in the room and also a small fan that we brought would help. We got back to the room late and tired and it still absolutely smelled terrible. ( I cant believe whoever inspected that room morally marked it clean) It was too late to change rooms and we were tired. We took quick showers, could still smell it in the shower, and fell asleep. ( Under the covers) We woke up early to leave because we couldnt stand it any longer. We reported this to the front desk and the manager told us we should have inconvenienced ourselves late night to switch rooms because since we didnt complain then she didnt believe us. We will never be back to dine, eat, play and will certainly tell everyone you probably just sprayed for bed bugs leaving a terrible smell in your rooms. Im still shocked that this room was even rented to cause such a problem.

Casinos aren’t paying out and pre-COVID we always were able to get a good payout and keep playing. Our last two visits we lost so much money we just walked away and stopped playing. We honestly gave up more than half the time from previous stays.

Sadly don’t go there if your ever injured or handicapped. They do not asst well with accommodations. Made it the biggest hassle ever to get a wheelchair, and when you question it, the manager got upset and tried to throw me out. It’s a beautiful place, just not handicap friendly sadly.
