Great resort - but missing the little things

  • 3 of 5

Been here numerous time (former owner at DRI). The service has always been very good. Guest relations staff have always been friendly and helpful when you need them. Security staff at the gate are also very nice.

That said - the unit we had must have been older as it was more dated in comparison to others we've stayed at. While there was a LCD TV in the family room - the feed was not HD. The TV in the MBR was a super old CRT at maybe 15".

Sound insulation is also not the best (albeit no worse than a house) Request an upstairs unit if possible. You can't avoid the sounds of your neighbors talking/laughing. But at last having an upstairs unit will keep you from the stomping/walking above you.

There were also no draperies on the windows (torn off or removed as evident from the holes in the dry wall). Only blinds. So when the sun comes up, so are you. The MBR faced east too.

Finally - on our check-out day. We went out for a quick breakfast and returned to find our keys no longer worked (three hours before checkout time). We paid two visits to the front desk where they issued new keys. Both failed. They finally called security to let us in. Security got us in and informed us this is 'normal' as the keys are expired on your last day (so why didn't the front desk know about this?). Thus, plan accordingly on that day of your checkout or ask the front desk when you check in.

Nice and basic with lots of extra space.

  • 3 of 5

The unit is fine, not really modern if you are expecting high end kitchen or furnishings. Totally functional and comfortable, just a bit dated, not bad though. Bed and pillows are very comfortable. Unit has TONS of excess space--would be great if you needed a port a crib, rollaway bed as there would just be plenty of room for it. Coffee maker brews full pot and has filters provided. One complaint we did have is lack of hot water--we took 2 showers close together (they were not long) and we ran out of hot water. Seemed way too soon for a hotel accomodation. Nice water pressure though.
