Not so great.

We tried to turn our heat down but had to completely shut it off at 1:00 am because it was 96* in our room the first night. The second night we didn’t even turn it on because we didn’t want to be in a sauna again. Our room key would only work after about ten times putting it in and out then finally we got the door open. This happened every time we went in and out of room. Pool area is beautiful and very nicely kept.
