We took our little one (3 1/2 yrs old) on her first family vacation here a few weeks ago. Overall we had a wonderful time. The resort is large enough that you don't have to leave for any other amenities or actives, and for the most part, we didn't leave. Our room was in the adjacent Sands building, which connects to the main resort through a skywalk. The room itself was small and nothing impressive. It was clean enough, but not exactly immaculate. It served its function, as we really didn't use the room for anything but sleeping after a long day of playing.
The water park is the main attraction here, and it really is spectacular. We've been to a few indoor water parks before, but what set this one apart was the sheer size, and most importantly, the area of the park that was designed for toddlers. Most water parks are really geared towards older kids or pre-teenagers, but the Tiko's Watering Hole, which is the kids area was excellent. Our little one loved all the water slides and activities there, and we loved not having to shield her from older kids or teenagers knocking her over to get to a slide. The lazy river was another area that we were all able to enjoy. It did look like there was plenty of over areas for older kids, teenagers, and even a swim up bar for adults. So there really is something for everyone.
The arcade in the lobby outside the water park had video games for people of all ages, and a kids climbing course that was perfect for our little one.
There's a variety of restaurants, all of which were decent. Nothing mind blowing, but better than average resort fare.
All of the staff we encountered were very helpful, friendly and professional. Overall this was a very positive experience, and a family resort that we would certainly visit again.
