This resort, it seems, has a long history. It has been through several incarnations and as it stands at the moment made for a pleasant place for our one night stop over.
The place is in the process of being upgraded from being let go a bit in the past. The pool is great and the rooms clean and comfortable. Not a luxury feel but very adequate for our family. We asked about the restaurant and the lady on the desk said they had one but we would need to tell them we would want dinner in advance as it seemed it would not operate if we didn't go. She also told us there was a nice place just down the road, under 5minutes, whiter we could go. We chose this option as we were not sure of our plans and it was great.
As a resort it was probably under staffed but we liked it. A little run down but very friendly, clean and pleasant.
