    Location was great! nice to be close to the beach. The pool was also really nice especially at night, although it has REALLY hot water in it. The security could have been better as we left the room locked when we went to the park, and the staff left it unlocked after they cleaned it. The dorms are very hot and humid, and impossible to sleep in after about 9am.
