  • Great place for kids and adults alike. The river was fantastic. My only concern was that it was really cold inside but that was likely because it was very cold outside. The water is not heated.  more »

  • Extremely friendly staff that is there and ready to help you with anything needed. The rooms on the other hand are not the greatest. They have a foul odor, you have to wait 15 minutes or longer to get water warm enough to shower in. Items for sale and food on the property are very pricey. The place overall is pretty outdated. Definitely not a "resort" feel to the place. Good location on the beach though.
  • The indoor and outdoor water parks were so much fun. It doesn’t look like much when you enter in but once you get in there you realize how much there is to do. The lazy river around the outdoor water park was my absolute favorite thing to do. Most of the park ride entrances were off the lazy river so you could float around for a while and scoot over to a ride if you were so inclined or just keep floating. The food and drinks were surprisingly reasonably priced at the water park as well. The Seaside bar and grill was a lovely place to unwind and relax with some nice drinks and enjoy the beautiful beach scenery. The fifth floor restaurant was closed for the season however the area itself was open and provided a nice place to watch the sunrise in the morning and enjoy the evening waves at night. My only complaint about the resort is that the rooms were not that great. Our family of six stayed in a King Beach Side suite. We didn’t spend a lot of time in the room so there was adequate room for all of us. I was more disappointed in the cleanliness of the room and furniture. There also didn’t seem to be much in the way of amenities. The rooms were expensive so I was expecting a bit more luxury for a resort and the price that we paid.
  • Love this place. Especially when it rain awesome. By the sea and the smell it's like we're in it. Just totally awesome family experience. Friendly people and of course rude ones too. Don't mind them or call staff they'll handle the problem fast. Enjoying the summer at it's top pike. Look for sales in the local community if not pay the full price. Have fun.
  • It's awesome you get a waterpark pass for everyday you are staying in the hotel. Even before check in and after you check out. I wished the side entrance of the wave pool was open every day we were there but for those two days it was open, it was amazing.
  • This is a really nice place. It would have been perfect if they had a way for you to access the front desk through an indoor path instead of having to walk outside in the cold, or in my husband's case wheel around in the cold. None of the beach front properties are accessible for wheelchairs. There isn't a traditional complementary breakfast,southern breakfast or breakfast vouchers. For the price of the rooms you'd expect something. It has everything else related to water conveniently located in or near it. This is our first getaway here, so we'll be back and better prepared.
