    "Not for Family with Small Children"
    May 2022
    The room itself was fine. HOWEVER, the hotel has a bar/pool next door that seemed to be having a party going on all of the time. The music was so loud it sound like it was in the room next door to ours instead of in a completely different building. We could hear the songs word for word and we were on the 6th floor of the hotel. We were also told everything closed at 9pm, but our 1st night there. By 10pm, the music was still playing. Our children had a terrible time trying to take naps and go to sleep for the night. I do not understand how this hotel was a packaged suggestion when booking tickets for family vacation spots (zoo tampa and florida aquarium).

    Tip: NOT for the family. Probably good for party groups or young couples.

    "Very fun and clean"
    August 2021
    The pool was beautiful. The room was very clean and the drinks were amazing! The only reason I have 4 is because I tried to call the restaurant at least 6 times and I never got a response.

    "What a Scene"
    July 2021
    There was a big palmetto bug (roach) in our room along with some ants (not many), and a few nats. The hallway on the 5th floor reeked of weed so bad that it gave me a headache. The place was absolutely beautiful though.
