I really can't say enough great things about the Dana. In fact, part of me wants to keep this little gem all to myself so I can return any time without facing a sold-out situation. Another part of me wants to shout it out to all the families with young children how great it is. It's location, close to airport, on the bay, across from Sea World and close to a market is perfect. The hotel staff smothered us in service to the point that it became a joke among us, "I bet they're calling to make sure we got our towels...yup - that was it". The courtyard rooms, are small but fantastic for both children and parents. Children can run around in the enclosed courtyard while parents can relax or get ready. This feature afforded me the luxury of actually being able to relax for the first time in a long time. I was impressed with The Blue Pearl restaurant with its great service, prices and decent food. I wouldn't recommend renting a car considering the parking fee and the fact that you can do so from the front desk they day before you need it. The only bummer is that there's no kiddie pool but there is a gigantic sand pit with toys. The Dana is affordable and totally awesome and I pray to go back someday!
