Came from L.A. for a two night stay with my 3 year old grandson. This place is huge and you do not have to leave unless you want to go wander around Las Vegas. With my grandson, I was happy to stay put! Stayed on 5th floor, pool side view. Comfortable room; got a good deal through the internet. Plus we got two buffet breakfasts each day included.
I do have to comment on something though. I tried to get food around 8:30 from in room dining and was majorly disappointed that although the in room menu listed many items, they were only serving about 4-5 things; none of which a child would want... and at that hour there are no little restaurants to get something either. That was very frustrating, so bring a cooler and some snacks!
The main reason I wanted to go was for the pool selection! Great pools! Downside was twice in one day all the pools were emptied due to "bio" release into the pools and we had to wait over an hour to go back in when it was 107 degrees out! The kiddie pool is next to the wave pool, so the little ones that can't go into the wave pool still get the effects of the waves if they sit on the "line" and then go flopping around from the waves into the pool. That was fun! Pool bar/food service was good. There is not much to do inside for the little ones and it was too hot to go out, so we got creative. There is a tram that goes back and forth between the hotels. My grandson loved it. He thought it was a train and didn't want to get off. So we spent time going back and forth! There is a Shark Reef on the premises. That was really fun and just big enough. It doesn't matter what time you go. The fish were active even at 9:00 PM! The breakfast buffet is great IF you like a lot of food. There was nothing missing from the selection! So overall, I will stay there again for sure. It would be fun without the little ones too!
