Beach was nice-plenty of chairs and shade. Some sea grass at beginning of water. The beach was raked daily. No rocks in water where you walked.

Water was very warm- a little warmer than the pool. Kids rode banna boat. We did not snorkle-it was a little choppy the week we were there.

We're leaving tomorrow!

How crowded did things seem? (beach, pool chairs, restaurant reservations)

Were kids allowed in the Gourmet restaurant? I remember reading old reviews where there was one evening they were allowed but you had to book quickly or they'd be full of all the families that couldn't go otherwise.

What time were the two evening shows? (Kids and regular)

Any recommendations/tips specifically for kids. Mine are 5 and 11.

I didnt think it was crowded at all. I was worried about Thanksgiving-but there was no problem. There were six of us and we never had a problem with chairs- we would drop our towels off on our way to breakfast and go back as soon as we ate. Aunt Rubys is nice for lunch. Its on the beach and you can go in bathing suites -as long as you wear a cover up. The Gourmet was full of families with children nightly. We had a dinner reservation each night. All were good. Japaneese was slowwww. Aunt Rubys was nice because men could wear shorts. Shows were 8:15 and 9:30. My youngest was 16 so we didnt use kids activities.

Do you know if you can do the dinner reservations in advance of the trip or do we need to wait until we are down there? We will be there for Christmas and would like to make sure we can get a spot at the restaurant we want. Thx

I, too, would like to know IF dinner reservations can be made in advance. We are traveling with 16 family members for our parents' 60th anniversary. I would hope IRHS would accommodate all of us together......once......at least for their anniversary.

Do you have their email??? I tried to obtain it on a previous thread.

Thank you!!

Sundresses and Capris for women are perfect.
