Sleepless nights
Noisy room…gave me a room next to the utility room. I heard constant water running. there was no air conditioning..only had fan mode and terrible lighting in the bathroom. I reported it to the office and no one came. I called again in the morning and requested a new room. Much better but screendoors were jammed and I couldn’t enjoy the patio. I did not report it as U was too tired and upset at this point. These are things that should be checked and the guests shouldn’t have to point it out.

Rotten tomato
For the price and being 4 star this hotel was horrible. The room layout was just not well design, especially the bathroom door with was a sliding barn door that didn’t close all the way for privacy. The Ac didn’t work for a few hours and it was California heat wave. The room smell like urine, what a bad experience the room was. I tried to do a gateway with my girlfriend and the pool was our taking by kids and no control of the people was in place. Only one person working the bar and she was very exhausted from working in the heat and dealing with bad attitude people demanding faster service. She was very nice to me and my girlfriend because we understand the situation she was placed by the hotel. The view restaurant Horrible horrible horrible hostess. She sat us on a dirty table and came back to wipe it down with a use rag that smell bad and was very rude. I spoke to a Latin bus boy in Spanish and he came over fast and clean the table the way it should’ve been the first time. The Server was very nice and funny even though he gave my girlfriend the wrong plate it end up being just as good. The front desk was very helpful and kind. The cleaning people where very helpful and kind as well. But overall the resort it self is trash.

Terrible experience!
I was so disappointed that my rooms weren’t ready when promised an early check in. Next we had reservations at the spa and they couldn’t find them. Tried to make reservations for dinner we’re told they were booked but thank goodness the Manager helped us get in! Restaurant staff in the evening were amazing! Waitress at breakfast was terrible never checked on us and brought 2 other couples their coffee before ours and the same with taking our food orders. I paid a lot of money for terrible service and to just sit by a pool!

Great Bar
Beautiful resort. I wish we had more time to stay. The room did not offer air conditioning and with a sliding door facing the sun made the room a little toasty. Our resort view patio was not really all it was cracked up to be as it was a shared patio facing the parking lot. The bar and restaurant was wonderful. It would have been nice if we had more time within our he check in and check out window to enjoy the resort. Next time I would stay for 2 days to take advantage of the pools and amenities. Forest view patio would be my next choice for sure. Over all a very nice place to stay.
