Review summary

our room was cold every night. Had to have extra blankets. They said they couldn't do anything about it as long as it didn't get colder than 69. they said when they checked are room it wasn't any colder than that but as the night went on it got colder and colder. We complained 3 times but didn't do any good. It seemed like all the wanted to do is sell us stuff. Just to play bingo it cost $20. Our room was very run down it reminded me of a 2 star hotel. The closet door stuck and paint missing off of door, bath tiles looked dirty The day we got ready to leave we went to weight our suitcases with a new scale I bought I noticed it has a thermometer on it so we check the temp. it was way lower than 69 was 65.2 and that is after the sun had shown through the window for a couple of hours. I have attached a picture of it. Also we was to get a $25 credit for the boat but we didn't

but I didn't like I had to pay for tips before I even got on the boat of $120 for 2. So some staff got money from me even if I didn't see them.
