Myself, my husband, and our two small boys (aged 5 and 2) stayed 2 nights in a family room. The room was more than big enough, and so was the bathroom. Well above what we expected. We had an excellent sea view, and the windows are child proofed with the latches high up so we didn't have to worry about the kids opening the windows, which was a big plus. Everything was spotlessly clean inside the room.
The service from staff was excellent. The room service and restaurant staff, as well as housekeeping and the porter were very friendly. And the ladies in the parking garage were so accommodating and went above and beyond, as they actually blocked our parking when we went out during the day, so that we could get the same parking when we came back.
We had the buffet breakfast and it was very plentiful, with lots of choice. We also over the 2 days had Nacho's and the platter for 1 as room service. These were both very delicious. I would definitely recommend these from the menu.
All in all, we had an excellent trip.
