Birthday Weekend
Had a wonderful time! The only negative was the musty smell. Using air fresheners could help. Otherwise the hotel, location and fun things to do was a perfect way to spend a birthday weekend! We'll be back:)

Do not trust staff when checking in
I was told I was getting a room upgrade when I tried to check in an hour early and would be called when the room was available. No call received and the room I got was not upgraded. It was on ground floor, by the pool with only a partial view of the marina, not what the clerk described as the upgraded room would be. The room I was supposed to get was upstairs, larger than the normal room with a balcony for a view.
