Our Average Customer Ratings (based on 53 reviews)


Todd ~ Lakeville, MN

Pool: One large pool. Would have been nice to have a separate pool without all the entertainment/music going on. Chair reservation fiasco in full swing..wish resorts would handle this better.
Beach: Beautiful sandy beach
Food/Drink: Restaurants small so could not get in to all of them and the food was not that great when we did.
Accommodations: No hot water for 3 evenings and staff would lie about it being fixed. Apple Vacations no help with assistance or compensation either.
Service: Would not answer phone at front desk

Marina ~ Mayfield Hts, OH

Pool: Beautiful, clean and big.
Beach: Nice but we did not use it.
Food/Drink: Drinks at the pool bar could be better.
Entertainment: Not bad
Accommodations: Good
Service: Very good if you tip them.
Overall: Good

Maria ~ Brockton, MA

Beach: The beach was beautiful.
Service: The service was excellent
Overall: Had the most amazing experience, my wedding was gorgeous, very happy with everything.

Cheryl ~ Canton, OH

Pool: Needs a little updating.
Accommodations: There was no hot water the entire week that we were there. We had slightly lukewarm water on our last day. There was no water pressure when trying to get hot water. Only water pressure with cold water. Also, a pipe broke in the ceiling in the area right when you walked into the room. Water had been dripping for days then it broke and water was on the floor in the entire entrance way area. They responded immediately and fixed the problem. Lack of hot water was never fixed.
