They had a nice sauna, hot tub, and heated pool. Kierra Sillis - our pool attendant was very attentive and kept the kids entertained with fun...

The resort is located in the middle of the boardwalk so the proximity to activities is excellent. The garage provided adequate parking on site and there were some fun little shops nearby. Unfortunately our door would not lock well into the hallway or onto the balcony. The door that separated our room from the neighbors was paper thin allowing our...
