Enjoyed the stay and theme park despite renovations. The theme park was amazing for the whole family. Not many halaal options though. Overall worth it. The breakfast was a bit bland and limited for my taste and dietary requirements.

Excellent Experience. Room - Spacious, Comfortable, fully equipped. Excellent breakfast. Chose dinner at Back of the Moon - Perfect setup and meals to compliment our Wedding anniversary . They even dedicated a song to us. Logistics - Smooth check in and check out. Documents were already prepared and waiting for us by extremely friendly staff. Total Pleasure.
