Booked our 4D/3N family vacation via the Paradise Rush Sale offered to local residents inclusive of breakfast buffet, adventure zone for the kids, kayaking and snorkelling. Great deal esp. because we have 2 kids aged 9 and 11. The moment we arrived, we were welcomed by the courteous and very accommodating staff. Service is tops at this resort. You are greeted warmly each day and the staff goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. A shuttle to the malls is available for a minimal fee.
We stayed at a Premier Seaview Room in the newly refurbished Ocean wing. It was clean with a great view of the pools and the beach. The grounds are enormous and beautiful.
The breakfast and dinner buffet at Tides was good though the selection was not as big as in other resorts. My kids ate very well so I had no trouble with that. The Italian restaurant, Acqua, was not very good, however.
As far as the activities, you won't get bored. The pools and slides are a plenty and there are diligent lifeguards all over. The beach was spectacular with clear waters. The fish swim to you and are not scared of people at all. We enjoyed feeding them. We also snorkelled and went kayaking. The kids particularly enjoyed playing at the air conditioned adventure zone where they had a 25 ft. slide and rope obstacles when the sun was too hot. There was also e-zone for billiards and arcade games. They played mini golf, table tennis and pool outdoors. My husband and I got a lot of time to relax. What a fun filled vacation in a resort worthy of it's name!
