... surf town. We walked around looking for places for about an hour. We found a place but were out of there in about 5mins. She showed us the room and we were just ready to shower and eat so we took it. For paying $60 we felt like we should have paid $15. It was very dark room with an AC that had gaps on each side which if you turned it on the air would just go out both sides. The bathroom wasn't at all clean. We both looked at each other afraid to put our bags down and said lets get ...

A travel blog entry by byebyesnow on Feb 02, 2013

... we stayed the first night here. We paid our $10 to go hang out in the pool for the afternoon. Started chatting with Eileen and her daughter Katie who are from Ohio. Eileen has been coming to this same resort for close to 10 years. Katie finally came with her this year, and got to meet the 4 Crazy Texan Sisters and One Husband. They have also been coming to this same resort for ages. We had such a good afternoon with all of them:-) The 4 sisters, Helen, Erna, Dixie and Jessie ...
