The adult only Serenity area was the biggest let down of our trip...most staff has no idea where it is and the conditions were awful

First couple blocks were nice but we went on a tour and once you get beyond those few blocks it looks like Katrina

Dont fall for the 4 carton of cigarettes duty and tax free deal...customs will catch you everytime and you will pay regardless
