I've stayed here a couple of times before, most recently in 2015, and I definitely felt that the resort has greatly improved its customer service. the staff was friendly and helpful and the addition of a nightly turn-down service was a great surprise.

This place is so huge that we got lost a few times trying to find our way around, but there was always a friendly staff person there to point the way. My overall impression is that if you have kids, this is the perfect place to be. There are lots of activities to keep them occupied. There is also an...

Received two phone calls before we arrived by woman claiming to be part of the hotel but actually was selling timeshares. (Blue Green Vacations) When you check in you are sent to the activities desk for wristbands where they pitch the timeshares again. Also pitched on the beach by a roving salesperson. Rooms are small and need work. On the...

Stayed 3/17-20. We had a great time with our 2-1/2, 6 and 8 year old. Pool brought back spring break memories ... but with little kids sprinkled in. Loved the family entertainment at the pool - DJ was super!! Did prep a few meals in the room since it's spendy with kids. The woman who cleaned/housekeeping 321X was wonderful! Great...

I did all of my research ahead of time and thought I made the perfect choice. We picked this resort despite the steep price tag because of the activities for kids. The website and everywhere I read states that the floating water park opens in March. Not true. I hyped my son up and showed him pictures and videos... and...

Dear Guest, As per our conversation yesterday, please accept my personal apologies for the disappointment of your son due to Splash Island Water Park not being open. As I explained, we are very well aware of the expectations of our guest, as we are in the middle of Spring Break, with weather conditions improving each day. The primary reason that...

This was one of the best trips/vacations I have taken in a long time. The staff was very nice and courteous. Our travel adviser, Holly the Barista and Bartender in the main lobby, was a great way to start the day. Always very pleasant and helpful. The food was very good at all the restaurants we went to - From...

Oh, man. My husband and I are here on our second to last day of Spring Break and I am torn. First off, this is a resort for kids. If you are a couple just wanting to have a nice ocean vaca, this is not for you. That, in and of itself, is not the reason for the stars I...

We needed a last minute place to get some sleep. David- in training- was absolutely amazing in helping us out with our situation. The room was a bit small, but super clean. The staff was very friendly and the activities were wonderful!
