The water slide was closed all day my kids were so mad. They should have told me at check in.

Room was filthy. Surfaces didn't look like they were cleaned for months. Shower was far from clean. Blueberries on the floor, pillows were grimy. Staff was so so but not a freindly demeanor. Wont be going back.

Cabana Bay was a great little hotel. Rooms and pool were kitchy and cool! My only small complaint would be the quality of food at the “diner”. Could have been a bit better for the money but overall just fine.

50s motif was unique. It would be nice to have a better sit down restaurant on property

I did not like the beds. It felt like my head was lower than my feet. We had two double beds and both seemed like they were pretty wore down.

Long lines at checkin. Two rooms for our family. In the same building far from the front desk. DIFFERENT floors. Get unpacked, come back to lobby to get a bus. Text message right then that they'd put us in a wrong room. Come to front desk. Went to front desk - long line. Saw a different person who wanted to know which room they'd put us in wrongly. How would I know? Then switched one room and deactivated the keys. But had to reactivate them so our girls could go get their stuff. Then move to a new room (upgraded - but not in any useful manner); ALL THE WAY on the other side of the resort. Multiple ice machines not working. Only option for room service? Pizza. Very limited on-site dining options.
