    Nice place to stay, especially for families

    Depending on the location of the apartment, it can be a bit noisy if you have a light sleep (interstate 15 close by)

    The resort is very nice and relaxing. There are many places to sit and relax. They have a lot of activities you can get involved in.

    The bed was too firm. I don't understand why they charge a resort fee when it is a resort. They should just include it in the room price. They should keep the pool hours the same all year long. They changed it to close at 9pm in October when it is still 90° outside.
