Liked how clean the toilets were near pool, water park was fantastic for the kids and room was pleasant but it did have an awful smell that was off putting. Felt the price per night was a little high for the age of room and beds.

Very poor security, a lot of robberies occurring at the park and the staff were very rude.

We stayed in the budget cabin, the bed was very uncomfortable, half a roll of toilet paper, mold in the bathroom and noisy fans. I wouldn't stay here again
