We are extremely disappointed with the pool facilities. On the weekend of oct 8-oct 11 We went to celebrate mi bday, we were 20+ people. On Monday oct 11 one of my friends, hotel guest, has a terrible accident in the water slides which led her going to ER and getting an emergency surgery I really hope these slides are taken care of so this doesn’t happened to anyone else Its sad that no one from the hotel followed up to see how she was. She had a really bad injury that lost a lot of blood. She was seen by the hotel Dr. I will never go back to this hotel specially if I know the facilities can put your life in danger,

My toilet didn’t flush properly 2/4 days. They came to fix it once, it happened again on the day I checked out I called 3 hours before checkout and no one came to fix it. On my last morning I couldn’t shower before heading to airport because brown water was coming up from the bathtub drain. I didn’t want to stand in it. Also would avoid the liquor it is low quality and caused me to get sick like I haven’t been since my 20s. Stick to wine and beer here. Food was bland, the “steak house” served a gritty piece of meat. Would not return here. They also will charge you if u forget to bring your key/pool towel cards from room. This is not near a swimmable beach either which is the icing on the awful cake .

Amazing staff, views and experiences while here for 3 nights. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and all are great. The taco stand in the middle of the resort square open until 1 am is a real gem! Covid testing on site and the results were sent by email the same day, be sure to make the appointment at least a day before. Air conditioning in the rooms could have been colder even though we were barely in them.

Disappointed, it is a old resort that needs repairs. Hose for the shower head pinches closed when adjusting it to your height. A/C was out for 3 days. Elevator worked part of the time. We were in Villa 7. The door handle on the sliding glass door was about to fall off literally. 2 seconds with a screw driver would have fixed it. Can't believe housekeeping didn't report this or fix it themselves. Rooms were clean and resort was clean. Torote Restaurant has the same 3 entree options everyday. The salmon was very good though. The road leading to the resort property is terrible. The staff are friendly. It wasn't awful but it wasn't great either.
