Had we known, we would have booked a longer stay. This place is great. We were only here one night, to be on a cruise ship the next morning.

We did not realize that water park and other things for the kids were closed for the season but we all had fun anyway! Loved exploring the pyramids. We had exceptional service from Alvin and specifically asked for him when we needed help with bags or ride around the property. Jessy in the Cafe was also terrific. He remembered our grandkids order from the day before and was very accomodating.

Near the beach & exhibits. Check-in was delayed 20 minutes in line (UGH!) system was down. Valet was very good as Herman took great care of our car and luggage. I asked a lady at reception for information but she was not very helpful. Overall, we won’t be staying here again. Did not represent itself as a 4 Diamond Resort at alll.
