3/5 Okay

The grounds were beautiful. For the most part, the resort was nice. I had issue with having to ask for towels, a leaking refrigerator and being locked in our room...quite a liability if you ask me. The response initially was quick, but the front desk minimized the severity of what could have been....

Although it was a quick stay and we didn't get to roam the property, the rooms were nice, the landscaping looked in good shape and the staff was very friendly.

Place is beautiful and clean. We were woken up at 8am because water was sleeping under our door to the hall. Turns out the toilet ran all night and dripped so much there was a slight flood. Workers said something inside the toilet was broken. This was no big deal and we went back to sleep shortly after before we had to get up and get on the road. Not even an hour later we are woken to a bang on the door and another worker walking right in. She didn’t even apologize and just left. Super frustrating
