I'd like to speak about the childcare offered at the resort. I was at first reserved about dropping off my toddler with complete strangers but it soon became obvious there would hardly be time to relax if i do not.
I gradually gained confidence with the staff at the resort nursery/ daycare- the Flintstone Club. They were able to quickly get my child interested in play, promptly feed and change her and put her down for naps. I ended up using the daycare quite a lot. I specifically noted the hands-on resourceful approach of Yennifer and Perla, but I know there were a few other girls and guys there who were with my daughter as well while Yennifer and Perla were at lunch or had a day off.
We also had a babysitter in our room- Megdalena- for a few nights so we could have intimate dinners and go dancing. Megdalena was outstanding- patient, attentive and most importantly able to put our very active toddler to sleep in a reasonable time.
They were just a delight, and although I did worry a lot, I see now that I had no reason to. This is a great resort to go to with a small child.
One thing to know is that the RS suites are at the opposite corner of the resort relative to the Flintstone Club. Was ok with me, however had to plan the rides there and sometimes walked (about 20 minutes). Also, if you are used to using baby carriers, don't bother with the hassle of taking a stroller to the kids's club. I used my mei-tai and ergo and it was way easier to get around the pretty but windy paths around the pools and the property that I had to go on to get to the kids club.
