I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel - amazing deal via lastminute.com, but would have been just as pleased if I had paid more as the facilities and staff were first class. A 15 minute walk to Wet n Wild, but that wasn't my priority on this visit, but may well be in the future - could see the queues form my room very clearly! Was a $6 cab ride to City Walk, 10 min ride away. One thing I will mention is that whilst my daughter was at work during the day, I tried walking to a store for some fruit and provisions, but turned back after 15 mins, felt quite desolate as no-one walks anywhere, can feel quite intimidating on your own, but fine if you are with someone. Be aware if unlicensed cabs, I got picked up by one pretending to be a cab that Wal-mart had ordered fir me to take me back to The Point Resort. They can spot a tourist a mile off! The hotel were very concerned for me when I eventually arrived back and only because a good Samaritan stopped to help me out with the unlicensed cab which was a very scary experience, so do be careful. Unfortunately, the majority of the cab drivers were hustlers, bar one guy, they were a nightmare and a couple were just plain unprofessional. Did not enjoy ordering a cab as it was such a lottery and inevitably they seemed to think if you were from England then you must be loaded! Weird experience. Hotel was brilliant though, cannot recommend enough.
