The place may have been in it's heyday 20 years ago but we love going back. The staff are the most helpful and friendly people we haveecer met. We loved the size of the family room and how clean everything was, the only drawer back was the power of the shower and the temperature of the indoor pool.

Other guests were noisy up to 4 in the morning. The reading lights were good and there was plenty of hot water. Food... More
