This was a great experience for our kids (6 and 7). They loved the water slides and the miniature golf courses. It was a little lacking for my husband and I. The food and service were great. The water slides broke once and the kids went nuts! It was funny but frustrating because no one knew when it would be fixed. A few hours later, it was back in service. Our shower was always running hot water, at times it was burning hot. Although our steward was great about getting us a plumber to fix it, it was never really fixed. My husband and I were bored most of the time, but we enjoyed watching the kids enjoy themselves. The pool was alright, but too deep for the kids and filled with chlorinated salt water that stung the eyes when it got into the eyes. I wished there were more shallow pools for the kids to swim in. Our dinners in the dining room were great. And the service was great overall.
