Clean, convenient, free shuttle drives around the grounds, nice pool area, plenty of chairs with splash pool and sprinkles for little ones and 2 bigger pools for older kids and an adult only hot tub. Playground. Awesome bouncy houses, go carts, bumper boats, big jackpot bingo, shows
Cons: food in the main dinning room is NOT good. But it is abundant. We had meal plans and were not charged anything extra for the kids to eat but as I mentioned the food was not very good. The food in cafe and by pool was better, but a little costly. Another con is that families love VR because their Tweens/teens are "safe to run around". In other words, parents can relax not knowing what their kids are doing or where their kids are. Which could be a pro if that's what your looking for. But if your a family of small children under a room full of unsupervised teens playing drinking games, then it's a big con! (And while walking back to rooms every night, pot smoke is smelled.) Security had to be called on 2 different nights on teens playing drinking games above us, well into the night. It's very disorganized. There was always confusion everywhere we went. Not sure if it's because of the number of young people working or poor management.
VR seems to be a love/hate place. You either love it or hate it. We will not be going back.
I'm sure the hotel management will write a rebuttal to this, as he as written on previous comments, that is his right. But I have no stake in this review, as he does. I just want to inform people before the book a costly vacation.
