6/10 Good

Great atmosphere bad housekeeping service
The resort itself was nice. Loved the pool and the cafeteria there. The room however was okay. The room was cute and clean when we got there. We stayed a whole week. Its a small room about the size of a motel. The biggest problem was the housekeeping service. They never changed our sheets the whole week we were there. They only took the trash twice. They never cleaned the floor, and there were crumbs everywhere by the end of the week. The beds were comfy but the pillows were like rocks. There was no support of comfort in the pillows. This made it very hard to get a good nights rest.
