this was our second stay in the winter months. This time we brought a big blow up two person pool toy and had a blast dumping my 9yr old and 13 yr old in the water...they had a blast trying to get mom and dad to fall off it as well. We only stayed one night, but checked our luggage and put my purse in the locker in the ladies room by the pool. we enjoyed lunch by the pool and an adult beverage and a delicious banana chocolate smoothie made for my 13 yr old. There is a shower in this bathroom, just remember to bring conditioner and a change of clothes. The kids were tired and clean by the time we left at 3 pm.
Dinner the night before was at the restaurant that you take a shuttle to...actually if not too cold this is a lovely short walk. My autistic kid had no trouble here. It was not noisy and very relaxed and happy...we enjoyed challenging each other with the hot sauce tasting while waiting for the food. The food was good, the relaxed experience great...also lots of dogs here in the pet friendly rooms. This is a hit with my sensory needy kid...lots of friendly petting in the lobby. If your kid is afraid, just check out the lobby before bringing them in...I do miss the free adult beverage upon checking that was available the first time we stayed.
My 13 yr old loved the Starbucks downstairs.
