Stayed here with a group consisting of 8 adults and 4 children ranging in age from 10 months to 4 years old. This place is perfect for people with kids. They have a kids club (free babysitting) starting for babies at age 4 months that is open during the day. It was perfect for dropping the kids off for a couple of hours while the adults had lunch and the babies could relax in a cool environment without someone having to sit in the room with them. There were scheduled activities for the older children, and each night they had a kids show that included kids from the kids club "Club Bam Bam".
As other reviewers have mentioned, the restaurant reservation policy is a little ridiculous. You have to wait in line to make a reservation for the following night. They are restrictive in the number of people per table, which made it hard for us since we had a big group. The restaurants were never full, and we didn't understand why they couldn't push 2 tables together to accommodate our larger group. The breakfast and dinner buffet (which has a/c) had a nice variety of food, and there was always one or two items that were being freshly grilled.
We had an ocean-view room, the M experience upgrade. Our room was large and beautiful. No complaints whatsoever.
Bottom-line, this is the place to stay with kids.
