"Loved the Price and Location, Loathed the Small Pool!"

This hotel is affordable, conveniently located, close to shopping, restaurants and main highways. It is also located right next to the TPC golf course (great for the Husband or golfer in your family) and is across the street from a beautiful park, which I walked around every day and loved. The rooms were decorated in a classic Southwestern style, and had flat screen TVs in both the living room and master suite--which was a big hit with my 8 year old.  This property also has a lot of activities for families with kids. The activities ranged from nature walks to lemonade tastings while mom and dad enjoy a wine tasting, to storytelling sessions and daily poolside games. There was no shortage of fun things to do for free or low cost.

The pool is beautifully decorated but it is way too small for the volume of people visiting the resort. We had to wake up really early every morning of vacation just to find pool chairs. Pool loving families take note: the one morning we did not get up crazy early, we did not get a seat at all! Mommy was VERY unhappy that day…

The other big miss for this resort:  it doesn’t have a bar or restaurant on property--a big minus for a property that does not allow any outside food or beverage. The pool does have a small poolside bar, but the food is very limited and not very good. By mid-week I just drank Bud Light with Lime and ate fruit. This was by far the most frustrating part of the experience given the competition for beach chairs and the limited food options available.

It should also be noted that maid service is not offered at this resort. The maid came and replaced towels infrequently. However, the hotel staff is great, and if you need something, a simple call to the front desk will send housekeeping up promptly.  One other thing to note from a family traveler perspective--the closets aren't spacious. There's very limited room to store luggage and not enough drawer space to unpack your suitcase and put clothes away.

All in all, this property has a great location and is a good value. By weeks end each of us had a job—one person was  tasked with getting up and getting the pool-side real estate each morning, another person was responsible for going out to grab a decent lunch for the family and the third person was responsible for getting towels replaced. It worked out great once we got in the rhythm.
