We stayed for one week in building #1 which is closest to the pool and workout center. The resort was full of families with children of all ages. We took our 10 month old and she had a great time in the water. The pool area has a great shaded sitting area with misters and fans that my family loved when they needed a break from the sun. There is only one bathroom near the pool, so it is a little inconvenient, but that bathroom is awesome-- it has a refreshing outdoor shower and complete "zen" feel.
Most of the staff was friendly and helpful, but there were a few staff from the bar and grill that were slow to wait on us at the Grill and walked by us poolside many times before waiting on us. The grill is very expensive $12 for a margarita and average $17 for a meal. There is a market place if you need anything but they close by 11 am so I never made it there. About a mile away is a walmart and costco that have everything you need.
The rooms were very nice, the smaller one bedroom doesn't have a full kitchen and bath like the larger one bedroom does. The larger one bed has a great bathroom with jacuzzi tub, steam shower, and private toilet.
My Hubby played golf at both courses, he enjoyed them both shooting 69 and 74. One course was significantly easier than the other.
