You for sure need a better restaurant and better service, maybe more attendants at the pool bar/refreshments. Very slow. I had to get their attention every single time I wanted anything. The food really needs improvement. Every time we have stayed there we have ordered from steaks to pizza. The steaks are as fatty as fat can get. We sent our back. The pizza I thought would be easy since we always experience awful food. I was wrong. Burnt. I need to just learn to order from outside restaurants or get get take out and bring it to the room. I just hate the thought of having to take my children away from the water park to go eat somewhere. Kindof why we pick this hotel to begin with. So we don't have to. But I can not stand to eat at the restaurant in this hotel anymore. I am not the only one, I can tell you that. Besides the restaurant, my children do have fun there. However they are outgrowing it. They only want to be in the hot tub now. And now that you have to be 18, they are really bummed. Hard to keep them out of it, when we have one at home. But I do think the water park is good for the younger children.
