  • In a good central location . Rooms we perfect for all we needed as only sleeping in them . Breakfast could improve though  more »
  • This is a very nice lagoon. Perfect for families to chill and enjoy the water. A very popular place, especially on weekends. It's huge and can accommodate a large crowd.  more »

  • What a great free public space to enjoy. Safe and clean and big enough so you are not swimming on-top of others. Very family friendly. Nice lawn areas around also.
  • Hey, it's free! What's not to love?! You get a great view while cooling off and they also have free community classes in the morning. A schedule is up to check out. Showers with lockers are also available right alongside to take the stress out of losing car keys etc while you relax with a police beat on the shore as well as security cameras everywhere. Safe, secure and clean they're also patrolled by lifeguards during the day.
