The staff were not friendly The breakfast food came to the room COLD an when we complained they were not happy or helpful Also the bedding was not changed for 4 days and that was the whole time we were there Also on 1st daywe put a Don’t Disturb notice on door - they still came in and replaced things in there like water and chips. Was NOT happy at all with everything and will Never stay there again Casino Hotel👎👎👎Bah

Stayed 3 nights in Dec. 2019


    The room was very nice, however after paying $399 for 1 nights accommodation in a lagoon room ( to enjoy some peaceful alone time with my husband) I do not expect to have to deal with 10 people having a 30th birthday party in the room next door smoking drinking in the pool out the front of of our so called private pool entry... If I had wanted to party I would of paid for a cheaper room and swam in the infinity pool or cheaper still stayed home with our 6 kids... Very disappointed the property does not make sure this doesn't happen
