Place was clean and quiet. The front desk bought us a basket full of goodies to our room. Very friendly people. Nice area to spend some time in. Pet friendly rooms. Good restaurants close by. I will go back.

Our room was at west end of the property, just several rooms away from the pool. My wife and I didn't use the pool. So i'm unable to give a good answer! The rooms are very nicely kept and comfortable!
