The pizza was good. My husband would get it by the whole pizza.

Lido Marketplace

4 out of 5

Ate breakfast and lunch at the marketplace most of the time. The food was good. The options didn't change that much day to day.

Ate in the southern lights restaurant. Our waiters (Rolando, Val and Ryan) were amazing. We really enjoyed eating in the restaurant. They remembered our names and what my son wanted to drink every night (he never changed like everyone else).

Cucina Del Capitano

Ropes Course

5 out of 5

My children did it a couple of times and really enjoyed it. They would have done it more if it was a little less crowded.

Water Works

My daughter loved it. She didn't actually go up to try it until the last day but she spent a good amount of the day up there


5 out of 5

My children loved to play basketball and soccer. It took them a couple of days for them to go up and play but after they did it was hard to get them to come down unless it was time to eat.

Guest Services / Excursions Desk

5 out of 5

We did 2 excursions we book 1 of them through the desk and the other online before we left. The people at the desk were very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a little trouble with my sons internet and chat option on the first day but before the end of the night they had it figured out.

MultiSport Court

5 out of 5

My children did the skycourse, played basketball and soccer. They loved it. It did take them a couple of days before they actually went up to play but once they did we had a hard time getting them to come back down for anything except food.
