We had to wait over an hour for breakfast. Prices are not great, nor is the food or the service. Good Coffee.

Clean. Seats need to be reupholstered. Staff need to have a class in customer service. Food is average. Price is a little high all things considered.More

Food and service was great, but the wait to get in and 45 minutes to receive food was slow. It seemed like the resort was understaffed to keep up with the amount of people.More
