This was my second trip to celebrate my daughter's 14th birthday. She had so much fun playing Magiquest last time (at 12). This trip, the game didn't hold her interest for long (Maggi master now), but the water park was more fun. Our room (Kid's cabin) was nice and had semi-separate areas. It would have been nice to have a decent coffee maker and coffee (only decaf??) considering the price of the room. I thought it was strange that the water park area did not have a water fountain, and that you had to enter the hotel section to find one. This after warnings to stay hydrated while playing in the park! I decided to use the gym only to find that the water fountain was broken (nice find after a long cardio workout). The food options are limited, so pack plenty of snacks when you arrive. Don't forget bottled water as they charge $2.50 each for small bottles!
The place looks a little worn in places (back elevator was broken while we were there, carpet dirty in spots) and could use a face-lift. The robot made frozen yogurt machine was cool to watch, but many of the toppings were empty (at $7 a pop, really??!).
Pros: Free wi-fi, soft comfy beds, windows that open (a tiny bit), frig & microwaves in room, lots of lifeguards, good exercise for everyone
Cons: Expensive everything, even the Starbucks prices are jacked up by over $1 per drink. Not much for older kids to do once they've finished with water park.
