Grab your friends and enjoy some time in the sun with pool parties hosted every weekend during the summer months to cool off and chill out! The pools feature a live DJ every Saturday and Sunday throughout the season. “On the whole, we don’t take ourselves too seriously and want to make sure our guests have the best time possible when staying with us,” says Director of Marketing, Dana Kuritzkes. “Whether that be us throwing impromptu water balloon fights, showing cult classic films from a projector by our pool or hosting pool parties on the weekends, we know how to throw down.”
