As you will read, this is NOT a New York City 5 star resort. This is a basic hotel with the BEST parties. As I've said in the past, if you have an attitude, stay in the Pines. Cherry Grove is party central.
With the Pavillion closed, EVERYONE seems to end up here during the day. They have added new loungers with umbrellas at the end of the pool. My room had a new floor in the main room and a new kitchenette which had pretty much everything you would need.
The bathrooms still need to be renovated but this place is not about the rooms. It's all about the parties. The poolside shows were great, the nighttime shows have amazing talents and you won't find a better party than the Friday night underwear parties. These alone are worth the price of the room.
If you want luxury accommodations, stay elsewhere. If you want to have the time of your life, stay here!
