As a parent of a disabled teenager, disappointing that we could only get into the two basic pools. Steps to the rapids and the flumes. Making these inaccessible. Considering my daughter loves to swim she was only able to bob up and down in the...More

Lots of different rides for every age group with relaxing surroundings - the Cabannas are a great treat if you wish to relax poolside

Lots to do for all ages (including adults). Can get packed in the afternoon but not too bad. Lockers are accessed via your room keys. Wave machine is fun and plenty of fun for little toddlers too.
