We were able to book this hotle through Busch Gardens and got a great price that included our park passes. It was cheaper than booking the hotel alone! The rooms are a bit "tired" but we only slept in them. We had a main floor room with a view of the shuffle board deck, and it was very quiet, no complaints. Having a restaurant was great, and the upper bar-deck was fun and allowed us to have some grownup time while still keeping an eye on the kids below! 2 pools added variety, as did the small sandy beach and fishing! Our kids had a blast as we allowed them to do a little exploring on their own for the first time. (9 and 12 yrs old), since the whole place is contained and VERY kid friendly. Their is also a small arcade. We would definetly return, and actually tried to book again for this year but they were sold out! 5 minuted from the beach, and lots of food nearby.
