It's all inclusive, so you know it's not going to be uber-luxurious. If you know that going in, I think you'll have a good time. Two pools - one very large one for all ages with a waterslide and one adult-only pool. Don't worry - both have swim-up bars! You can't swim in the ocean due to undercurrent, but watching the waves from a hammock swing or beach chair is still wonderful.
FOOD: There are enough restaurants to choose from that you can shake it up for meals. Patio is your typical buffet - it's ok. Oceana is billed as one of the nicer restaurants - I found it completely mediocre. Seaside Grill was good and more consistent. Portofino (Italian) and Himitsu (Japanese) were fantastic!
ROOMS: The junior suite was large enough that our son could sleep on the coach in a semi-separate area. This made things easier for us. Most rooms have ocean views. I found them to always be clean, and while the décor was a little dated, I didn't find it awful.
ACTIVITIES: Lots to do for the kids. Explorer's club allows kids to check-in for activities from 9am-10pm should you want some alone time as adults. They offer everything from crafts to tennis lessons to a cute bungee trampoline on the beach. A putting green, giant chess set, ping pong tables, basketball hoop and random evening activities like a show or casino night provide entertainment.
AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Some parts of the resort do need TLC. The swim-up bar in the main pool is starting to show its age. We waited for tables and restaurants more than once and some restaurants were understaffed, so don't be in a hurry at one with servers. All of the 'extras' you may choose to pay for are overpriced. Special wine bottles are marked up WAY over value. The spa is completely overpriced as well. The resort also boasts that tipping is already included, but note that everyone is still sort of expecting tips.
TIPS to HELP: Don't go to the hotel spa - check out Eden's which is on the beach right next door. I had a heavenly experience there with a massage. You can find them on TripAdvisor, too. Don't expect the adult pool to be a zen experience. They say it's tranquil, but by 1pm people have been drinking and they'll be talking loud, throwing footballs... just know that going in. Pool chairs are a hot commodity, so get to the pool early or you might miss out.
On the whole, it was a good time and we all enjoyed it.
