Looking at the website I thought this place was going to be old and dusty. We were pleasantly surprised by how new everything looks, yet there is a nice "wilderness" feeling. The rooms are clean and nice looking.
Kids can do a lot of activities, even besides the water park, and when buying the stay-long card, it is very affordable. The water park was too crowded when we were there, not a free chair to be seen and the lonely barman was not able to serve drinks in an acceptable time. Not really his fault as there should just have been some help.
The reason why I would never go back to this place is because their food is just plain terrible. The dinner buffet is cold and the a la carte choice is poor and badly executed and tastes like Eastern German hospital food. A bottle of Cupcake red wine sells for a whopping 43$... but a glass is 6$... Someone must be good in math in the F&B department... That is maybe why they kept running out of things (in a 3 day stay they ran out of plastic forks, Blue Moon, condiments ...) Anyhow, I would be willing to pay more for the food and less for the wine if they would lift the standard of the food. The place in itself seems to set itself a pretty high standard, but the food just catapults it to the bottom of available places to spend our expendable income.
