Its a very charming hotel with nice activities to do with your family. We had a laguna beach club, which was an excellent choice since they provide lunch from 1-3. Buffet food for breakfast and dinner is a certainly a 5 star standard. We would love to go back when we have the time.

If you like Disney you are right here. The whole place looks like an old castle (inside) and like a grotto (the pools). But everywhere you notice that this is not typical for the country. Not many people in the summer, mostly from Egypt.
