This is my family's 12th spring break at this resort, and this is the first time we have come away feeling a little dissappointed. There were no activites (crafts, games, movies) for the kids. There were no activities (casino, comedy or music in the lounge) for the adults. The prices for EVERYTHING have increased and the services have decreased. Pool towels for guests are now $2 ... each. Our room price was twice what we paid the year before. The lodge casino has moved, along with the snack bar.
The staff was as friendly ever, but it seemed they were a little embarassed about the lack of services. "We are under new management," was the standard reply to our concerns about the dissappointing changes.
We will be watching closely to see if New Management finds a way to operate this resort in a way that maximizes their budget without breaking mine. Till then we, regrettably, will stay away.
