Review summary

The spa wasn’t great. I’ve never had to pay a separate fee to use the spa amenities when I’m also getting a massage. The staff tried to up sell me at every turn.

Pools were overcrowded. Kids screaming everywhere. Not many activities for young adults.

Comedians were ok. Not much other than that. Would have liked to see more diverse shows.
