Our 12 year old granddaughter found this hotel on the internet to replace one that we had already booked. When we then read reviews about The Academy, we decided to go with her find instead and were SO glad that we did. The hotel itself is so lovely and was so affordable that we are considering taking our grandchildren there again this year. They especially loved the pool, which is located in the huge lobby of the hotel. Breakfast buffet (included in the room rate) was one of the best that we have ever had, with a class A chef to cook eggs to your liking. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean. Staff are customer-service oriented, making you feel that they are glad to have you at their facility. There are so many family-type activities in the area. I could go on and on......the Academy is simply magnificant!
