We go to the Woodlands resort several times each year for the past 3 years and unfortunately the last 2 stays have not been as good as previous ones. (March and June 2010) Poolside service is horrible - you get faster service if you walk over to the bar as opposed to waiting for one of the FEW waiters/waitresses that are poolside to come to you.
The poolside rooms are by far the best for convenience but way over priced - even on a week day. For the past 3 years it has been the same activities - but not complaining. My kids LOVE Muffie the Clown and the Balloon guy. In fact - that is what makes it all worth it. The S'mores are great but we missed it the first night b/c we lost track of time - no one announces crafts, s'mores - anything. You truly have to be paying attention.
Breakfast buffet is great but again - over priced. Especially for the kids. It was easier and less expensive to get in the car and drive to the mall and eat at Panera.
I would recommend this hotel but I suggest you bring your own snacks and drinks.
Oh, and they charge you of you need a roll away so making pallets on the floor for the kids is def the way to go.
