We expected a certain program for the kids as the whole idea of going...

Depending on what you are looking for, this could be the place for you. It has a play area for kids, gentle beaches, and a buffet with lots of choices. Having visited another resort before this one, we found it less intimate and more commercial. It lacked the coziness and uniqueness in our opinion that we were seeking. That said,...
