          Any recommendations for a family traveling with teenage boy and girl? Need separate bedrooms for kids and quiet for adults to relax. Have read both good and bad reviews and am concerned about the 'bad' service/attitude. It's been awhile since we've had a vacation - so, we're looking for some good outdoor fun and relaxation in the evenings... Thanks!
