Other Comments:

  • A great place for a family to stay.
  • There are activities for the kids and the entire family.
  • The staff was caring and very courteous.
  • My son bought a camera from the gift shop (a cheapie) that broke on us the first day he used it. We took it back for an exchange and were given another camera, five rolls of film, the money back for the initial purchase and $5 of tokens for the game room.
  • There is a gated entrance and a security patrol.
  • The room we were in connected to a larger 2 BR which could easily sleep another 6-8 people (total of 10-12 for both rooms), yet our room was roomy and didn't seem like the smaller part of a combo.
  • Tip-if you are traveling on a budget, book through Island One 800-892-7523 (the owner of this property) and take the tour. It is a timeshare, but they were not pushy or ugly to us once we declined to take part in their program. They did ask us to refer any friends that may be interested to their resort and included a free breakfast, free backpack filled with goodies (disposable camera, Gatorland tickets, 30 min. phone card, etc). We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay.
