A romantic getaway
Posted Jan 11, 2017
It was a very beautiful hotel. I was very pleased with the room. It was gorgeous and I loved the bathroom. My love and I got into our bathing suits ready to ride the lazy river and warm up in the hot tubs. The pool area was the one reason why we chose this location. We went down in our bathing suits and were told by one of the rewards guys that the pool closed at 6. Check in was at 4 and we do night shifts at the hospital, so we arrived just as they closed. We were so disappointed, since we had planned to stay for 1 night. Not only were we upset, he kept trying to talk to us about rewards in the middle of the casino while we were in our bathing suits, until we finally broke away. I was very upset, since the pool was the only reason we came.
We finally decided to stay another night. They price was 40 dollars higher for that night, even though the pool situation ruined most of the trip. So plan to stay at least 2 nights. The pool and lazy river was worth it, but bar was closed since it was sprinkling. They also don't take drink orders for you at pool. The buffet is 30 bucks for dinner, so we didn't go, since we spent money on another night. I also wore a nice dress one night for dinner, but it was actually pretty laid back, so you don't need to dress to impress.
Overall, I loved the hotel. The lazy river is like a ride with waterfalls and all. The pool area is gorgeous. 2 nights or more are needed. Buy them early and ask about pool hours. Cafe there was surprisingly good!
