Hi! So my 10 year old brother loved it, he was able to roam around the pool and get himself burgers since it was security guarded. Also they have lots of activities for all aged! They have races in the pool, song alongs, dance offs, and some shows at night. There's a club for 18 and over which is awesome and has great music! They have choices on the ice cream, I liked it because different flavors and you can get cup or cone. The channels are in spanish but I did find a music channel in English you just have to ask the hotel for the guide. You wont regret it because it's many different types of food and activites, and even if it rains they have a roof over where they do the shows and there's a club and casino indoors as well. You won't get bored 😊 also if you wanted to you could ask the concierge for tips on going zip lining and riding some bikes to the beach, it's a lot of fun!
