This hotel was nearly perfect. Nice hotel, beach, restaurants (14 of them), buffets, staff, Kids Club, night music performances, etc. The coral rief is very close to the beach so you can snorkel there will small kids, it's shallow enough they can stand, there are lots of different kinds of fish that you can feed with bananas and bread.
The Kids Club is great, good staff, kids liked it. The spa is new and beautiful and is included in the price!
The only thing I wish they could do is to serve real juices - orange juice, apple juice, etc. - instead of the chemical coloured over-sweet mixtures that they serve in place of juices. It's a shame when they make fresh fruit shakes out of papaya, bananas, pineapple etc. but then before serving them, they mix them half and half with the chemical mixtures and ruin them.
There is pellet gun shooting and archery too but they were not always available. Apparently they ran out of pellets and the bow broke. Too bad.
I wish wifi was available in the rooms. The free wifi in the lobby was often overloaded. Best time to get good wife was in the morning before everyone got up.
