We were looking for a nice family vacation spot that wasn't too far from home.
1. So many pools to choose from! But we stayed at the large Waterscape, which had a zero depth entry, plus a separate splash pad and toddler pool, Which were great for the baby.
2. Service: very helpful and friendly. We stayed in the junior suites-reasonably priced-and always caught a ride via club car to the pool. Pool waitstaff was also friendly. They were constantly handing out frozen oranges and grapes and cold towels.
3. Activities: so much to choose from for the little ones! However, the s'mores activity was so short and should have been longer since the dive in movie started so late.
4. Good poolside food. Lots of choices.
1. Not as clean as I would like. This place was very dated and did not feel so clean, and my crawling baby kept finding mystery items on the hotel floor. Yuck. Saw a few bugs in the dining room too. The pull out bed revealed old clothes and linens.
2. Dining room: average food, poor dinner service (breakfast waitstaff was awesome), and again, cleanliness. If it wasn't so hot, we would have eaten by the pool the entire time.
I know they are building a new building, but families using the junior suites would love new carpet!
Overall, it was a great trip and we will return. This place has a lot to offer. Just keep these tips in mind!
