We took our daughter here to celebrate her 4yr birthday, and we had a blast. We went in December so it was not very crowded, which was nice. However our suite offered plenty of space and all the expected amenities. I really like the separate living area so we don't have to be concerned about keeping our daughter awake after we put her to bed.
The water park is the nicest we've been to. It's large and has different areas for the guests to enjoy. There is plenty of space for smaller kids to enjoy, which I liked. However, our daughter was a fan of the larger slides as well. The wave pool is nice and we enjoyed the boat rafts for the lazy river.
The arcade is extensive for a hotel. The games are ticket focused and don't require much skill so our daughter could easily play games.
We were a big fan of Leaping Lizards craft area. The staff there was amazing! They really get the kids engaged. We participated in a handful of the scheduled activities, but you can also go in for games, coloring, movies, etc. I really appreciated having this available because you can only spend so much time in the water each day.
The Enchanted Lagoon kids spa is cute but small so I'd recommend making an appointment.
Overall, we were very pleased and enjoyed our daughter's birthday celebration very much! Now we just need an excuse to go back again.
