This property was great. The kids loved the theme! The family room suit was perfect for us. The kids slept in the table Murphy bed. That said it was quite comfortable. We all loved the pool and that they had activities for the kids to do. My only suggestion would be if they had food and beverage service in the pool area. Specifically cocktails 😉 the restaurant was just okay.
