We have 2 toddlers so from that perspective the use of old glossy tile everywhere is very slippery. It rained one morning and it was very slippery everywhere. I think even a senior would be in trouble. Even the flagstone around the pool is not truly anti slip as you find in many newer resorts.
That being said, this resort is worth a visit for the pools and grounds alone. Access to a waterpark like that would cost a family $100/day. It's truly spectacular and you can't appreciate it until your are in it. The property is a classic, and it has been meticulously maintained. It's like a palace, and it is beautiful. The rooms are nice, though our carpet showed too much wear. Every other detail was perfect and clean, beds are amazing!
Hilton honours it's members very well here, the service in the regard was spectacular.
The valet took almost a painful 25 minutes to get our car, they really need to fix this as valet is mandatory and $30 per day. Very frustrating and totally unacceptable.
The gift shop here is nice, but I was frustrated that they would sell cheap no name diapers for an inflated name brand price. I'm at a Waldorf, sell me the name brand goods! And the cafeteria is severely overpriced for the quality of food. Again, if you are charging 6.50 for a slice of pizza, make it good! The food wasn't even fresh. Unacceptable. Annoyed with those little details. We stayed one night and had two fun filled days in their amazing waterpark. Well worth it and glad we stayed.
Overall, go there!
