This hotel has 3 hotels on the same property. Although it is separated by price as the most expensive, middle and cheaper, all are very nice. We stayed in the middle priced hotel. Food and entertainment and pool was awesome. You can go and see the other hotels and see their shows for free and you can eat and any hotels "lower" than the one you are in. The beach is beautiful throughout the whole resort and towards the Palace (the more expensive one) has a coral area and the fish are amazing. If you do anything there I would recommend the Segway tour that you get of the hotel. It takes you throughout the entire place and tells you interesting things about the entire property. I would not swim with the dolphins there, the pool is so small it seems inhuman to put dolphins in there and then ask them to do tricks.
The only bad thing I can honestly say about this hotel is that all liquor is INCLUDED. BUT they will try and give you the cheap stuff even after you ask. I understand why they would try and give the cheap alcohol, but not if you specifically asked for higher end alcohol. SEND IT BACK, they get the hint and then they remember not to try and sneak it in. They do not provide better service if you tip them, so hold on to you tips, its sad to say, but sooo true.
The hotel was doing renovation on the cheaper end and the kids clubs (for my aged kids) were closed and not relocated, so that was a shock because that is all our travel agent talked about was the kids clubs there.
Also everything pretty much closes down around 6pm, then there is NOTHING to do until 9:30pm, even the outside table tennis and basketball courts close, so it was hard to keep kids entertained during this long span of time
