The breakfast in morning was horrible, hassle to get extra towel, outdated rooms,

6/10 Good

We were stuck in a room furthest from the pool & restaurant. The room needed some serious updating & maintenance. The bed was on par with a rock and the pillows weren't much better. The casino wasn't operating, nor was the Italian restaurant. We asked if we could use the bicycles parked near reception - the lady just said "No." Linens def not Egyptian cotton! Towels were something handed down from a Motel 6. The the good side - the employees were quite friendly & helpful, the pool was very clean, and the location is decent. We felt safe walking to restaurants & the beach. The maid went above & beyond to clean what appeared to be black mold off the shower ceiling. The A/C worked great. Being in the back of the property, we had a cute little mini-super right outside the gate. The free breakfast was good, made to order & very quickly. However, the 'orange juice' tasted more like Sunny D.
