We stayed here last year and I noticed a couple differences that would make me re-think staying here again unfortunately.
Our room was nice, no complaints. The size is generous and our ocean view was great. It's very comfortable and for a family it's a great room/villa to feel at home in. We borrowed a high chair and pack n play so we didn't have to travel with our own.
The activities section is nice for the kids, we did crafts, pottery, story time and used the toddler play structure. We took a class on seashells which was awesome. There is lots to do.
The down side for me was the increase of university students. There are only a couple pools heated now so there were a couple times I had to leave the pool with the kids due to inappropriate language and behaviour. More than once we came back to our room and passed barely dressed drunk kids stumbling around the hall in the afternoon. Not kid friendly. I wish that the university kids were together in their own section. Last year the hotel seemed more strict on the party policies. Last year we did not have this experience at all so something changed.
I was also disappointed the kids pool wasn't heated.
It's familiar and I like it here but the party goers are a big turn off for staying again.
