Disliked: Amenities
The rooms were equivalent to staying in a Super8 motel but the cost was more like a Marriott. I got charged $23 for a beer and the "resort fee" was ridiculous.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The pool and bar area was fun and refreshing. The location and property was right on the water with a nice path to walk around. What could have need some love were the rooms. The rooms and carpet starting to show their age.
