based on the helpful reply on ta, we plan on staying in the area for a week. we will be a family of 3 with a 9 yo son. i thought the pool would be helpful, as would the opportunity to meet other kids at the bayview, but the pool is small and he is not a huge fan of swimming. it seems we could get nicer accomodations with the other two options. would staying in town be more interesting (and have better access to ice cream shop!) or in another area or hotel?
