Out of the week we were here, they only set up one day and even then only 4 of the 9 float activities and only for two hours. They blame weather, currents, tides, etc. There was great weather most of the time. The people who...More

The water park does not look as impressive in-person as it does in pictures. It was possible that the resort only set up some of the equipment, thus charging only $10/hour. I'm not sure. Anyway, we stayed for 10 days and the park was open...More

During our stay from Saturday to Wednesday over 4th of July it was closed more than open. It looked fun but hard to figure the schedule. We watched them set up and take down the water park several times each day from our balcony.

Would have loved to see this but they never set up at the Trade Winds because the tide was too low. I know my daughter would have loved it. We were a little disappointed..

Our 4 year old really enjoyed this attraction - he wanted to repeat it every day of our stay. Definitely a crowd pleaser!

This was something the kids look forward to and they thought it was fine. The pics on the website make this seem like a bigger deal than it is. Also note that it's only up in ideal circumstances. Water temperature has to be above 70,...More

Not sure really. We never stay at the resort just visit the inflatables but I had thought I had read that you can pay for a band that includes all that sort of stuff. Probably best to call them directly. Have fun!
