We stayed here to have fun in the sun, and the amenities. It was my son's birthday and found this resort full of young people which was our intent. Security was on property which made us feel safer. With drinking, sun, and fun it can get out of control for a few. The rooms were comfortable. There was only 1 TV in the room, which had a separate living area. There could be another in the living area but there wasn't. It's Florida, so you're going to see a bug or two, maybe. I saw 1 ant. That's it. Everyone, the staff, parking attendants, bartenders, restaurant employees were very nice, welcoming and friendly. Overall, comfortable and fun.
