Pros: We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. It was big enough for 2 families (both w children) & it had separate bathrooms & had pretty decent soundproof walls! Rooms were equipped w plenty of towels, blankets, etc & room was very clean. Microwave & fridge were perfect for bringing a cooler & a few lunch items. There were 2 tables too. Water park was great for the ages we had: 5 mos, 1, 2, 3, 4 (& the adults had fun too!) we spent ab 15 hrs there in 3 days & still didn't try every part!) lifeguards were friendly & staff kept bathrooms, water areas clean. Temps of air & water we felt were perfect. Amusement park was not as kid friendly but had enough options considering we mainly went for water park anyways. The kids liked the Ferris wheel, bumper boats & small ropes course. The sugar cookie station was a hit too, thanks! Decor was neat & our kids loved taking pics w the statues. Hair braiding was reasonably priced & my girls loved it.
Cons: We tried to bowl but $7.50 a game per kid was ridiculous. In my opinion it should be included since there are limited choices for children under age 3. Staff at kahunaville was beyond rude & we chose to not eat there. Instead ate dinner & breakfast at the buffet next to water park... VERY nice staff & food was amazing! Spa staff was rude as well, didn't even use a coupon for $20 off due to this! Front desk needs to be more helpful in terms of where everything is. This is a huge place & if its your 1st time it can be stressful lugging kids around aimlessly. Maps are hard to read. I suggest handing an info packet out like other hotels w entertainment do.
Overall, it was a great long weekend trip & can't wait til next year. I think for the price it had everything we needed & the parts that cost extra & we didn't do & our kids didn't notice so not a big deal! U could def spend less than $500 & have a good time & have a couple good meals! :)
