The resort fee was not optional and was ridiculous Too high for a pool we used twice. We also had to pay $25/day to park that was not disclosed on my email from Expedia. I contacted customer service virtually and after 20 minutes of back and forth got nowhere. We probably won’t use Expedia to book again. The hotel was lovely and clean, staff were very pleasant. The pools were warm. Couldn’t ask for a better location. Just too many extra fees for us.

I had an incident during my stay which the staff handled in the worst possible way. There was a large party in the room next to us and for two straight nights in a row the noise kept us up. They had about 20 people at one point and had even lit a vending machine on fire. Security was called at least 4 times. The staff on charge could not handle the situation and refused to do anything until WE insisted they move us. They moved us to a room where our room was no where near comparable. Horrible customer service and no apology or understanding from the staff that was in charge that night.
