We booked for the Carnival weekend from Feb 8 - 11 with our two children 7 and 4. We stayed in a Deluxe Suite Ocean View and we had an excellent experience the whole time. Arriving about 6 hrs late due airline delays, the Indian restaurant was able to cater for our meals at a late hour, meeting strict Orthodox diet regime and allowing food for the kids to be brought in from the other restaurant. Staff were very accommodating and friendly. The view was awesome, our room was big, clean and functional, reception arranged fishing trip and hire car at good rates, we loved the beach and pool, breakfast (inclusive) was varied and good quality, all in all great value for money. Checked out at 1000 but flight was at 1600, they allowed use of facilities after checkout and then provided a room to shower and prepare for flight at no extra cost, this is invaluable with small kids. My only suggestion for improvements would be to provide 24 hr room service and have a dedicated concierge to assist reception with dealing with enquiries. However the overall experience was excellent and we would definitely go back and stay there again.
