This is literally THE BEST waterpark hotel. Are kids are ages 1-4 and the park was perfect. We also had a girl that was 10 and she loved the bigger slide.
The facilites for swimming were great. The zero depth pool was small enough that I didn't worry too much about the little ones. And for the hotel being full, (it was sold out) it didn't feel so crowded like some hotels get when they cram people in.
Usually hotels with parks in them have less than nice rooms. The rooms were excellent! And SOUNDPROOF! We were concerned having a pool front room it would be noisy, but the sliding doors closed out almost all the noise.
The only downside. Shortly after check in, there was a "potty accident" in the pool (a turd floating) so the small pool was closed the rest of the night. I feel that they could have opened sooner being it happened at 6pm. I emailed the hotel to tell them about it and never got a response why. I understand it happens, but being we were only there one night and only for the kiddie pool, it was a bit of downer.
Aside of that, the rest of the trip was amazing. We would go back, but just hope that there were no more floaters this time!
The only thing that could improve would be breakfast service. They have a restaurant, but for kids it wouldn't have been too enjoyable and was pretty pricey. They do give coupons though if you do choose to eat there.
