Neat & clean rooms. Staffs are very helpful & coperative. Their breakfast was the best I had recently. Even has a basketball court & childrens play area we used a lot. Also serves dinner which was ok. My whole family enjoyed our one night stay.

We had occupied three rooms. The staff and the hospitality of the hotel was very good. A little advice to keep tea pot in the room. We wish The Carnival resort a best season ahead. The house keeping was very good. The food quality was excellent.
