We stayed here prior to our cruise and was really impressed! We got a great deal through priceline express deals. There are a few negatives about the hotel but not many.
Cons: (because that's what everyone really wants to hear about)
The resort is quite large. There is self parking for $15 and it is quite a hike from the rooms. They do have a shuttle van that you can catch if it is there when you need it. Otherwise you can pay for valet. Once you get to the lobby... to get to our room (near the marina) you had to walk a ways to the elevator... then walk to the tram... then take the tram to our building... then walk a ways to our room. Each time you want to leave the resort you have to go through this process.
There are quite a few pools but each are freezing
Rooms are large and clean. We had a room on the 4th floor near the marina and had valeted ceilings and a view of the ocean, marina, and water park (fee). Floors are all tile. Provided a portacrib for our little one. Beds were comfortable.
The large caged birds were a hit with my kids.
Staff was wonderful.
I would return here in a heartbeat!
