I have visited this resort 4 years in a row. Each time, I had a great experience. My issue was not with the staff, as they are always very pleasant and helpful. The first room I was given, I believe it was 214, had a musty, moldy odor upon entering. I called the front desk and Derrick did not hesitate to accommodate my request for a different room. He even brought the keys for the new room to me so I would not have to make a trip down to the desk. The second room, 206, was better, but not by much. I am very sensitive, perhaps, but at night, as I tried to sleep, I still sensed a moldy odor. Luckily, the weather became inclement, so I did not feel bad about leaving the next morning. Not sure what's going on, but definitely atypical for this resort. Sad, because the location is A-1, and I had always felt that it was Labor Day week/Birthday week home away from home.
This is a great place with excellent staff members. Sometimes the rooms need to be cleaned a little better and the couches are outdated and uncomfortable. Location is very good and easy access to everything.
