The rooms are nice and clean, but the main floor and park need cleaning and appear dated and weathered. The park is perfect for young children. The pools are 3 ft, the slides aren't scary but fun, and there's lifejackets, pool tubes, lifeguards everywhere! My girls are 6 and 8 and were able to enjoy all the park has to...

During my visit I felt extremely positive vibes and all the staff was very helpful. The resort was in great conditions and my overall experience was amazing. One employee stood out from the rest, she gave advice about places to see and good food. The entire time Stephanie Salazar provided extremely great service and was a huge help.

Spent one night with our kids and we were a little disappointed. The water park is very small as in off season everything outside is closed and the inside is very small. Three slides a small kids area and the torat river, which to me was the best thing about this place. They do have an outside heated pool. The...

Nice place for families. Nice room, with coffee maker, fridge and flatscreen tv. However the township of SPI has to seriously step up their effort to minimize mosquitoes, because they are a disaster. Whatever they have done in the past, did not do the job. Mosquitoes hare the only reason not to return. Sprays hardly work!
