My husband and I stayed one night last year, without the kids, and really liked the resort so we brought the kids this year for three nights. I didn't even shop around, because I planned our trip last minute and didn't want the hassle.
Last year, we stayed in a single room in the main building across from the pool. It was small but sufficient for what we needed. Most importantly, it was clean.
This year, we stayed in room 130, which is a one bedroom suite (small living room with separate bedroom). We initially planned to put our twin 2.5 year old girls in the living room in pack n plays, but decided to squeeze the pack n plays into the bedroom with us so my husband and I could have some freedom to hang out when they went to sleep. It worked out well. It was a little tight, as the suite is only about 400 square feet, but sufficient for a short stay. I felt bad for anyone next to us though, because 2.5 year olds are difficult to keep quiet - especially when they wake up in the morning or have a temper tantrum - and the soundproofing is almost non-existent. We could also hear the neighbors every time a door was shut or they walked around or talked...but I guess you have to expect that when you share a "house". Anyway, the room had a private deck which was nice and was near the playscape, which was great for the kids. I misread the description thinking the deck had a jacuzzi. In fact, the room itself had a whirlpool tub, which was still cool. I would possibly choose this building again in the future, or upgrade to a larger suite. There are three parking spots assigned to this building, which was nice because we could park right next to it.
The lawns are meticulously maintained. The pool is also. There is a sun deck above, although we did not check that out. The beach is a short walk away (maybe 3 blocks?), although we drove this year because of the kids and all the stuff that comes with them. We learned from last year to bring our own chairs and umbrella so we did not have to pay to rent them. The beach has a lifeguard and an attendant. The bathrooms were clean, other than the wet sand everyone dragged in. There was plenty of parking for guests and there is a spigot to wash toys and feet off. We had the continental breakfast every morning, which included cereals, bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, etc. Any of the staff we were in contact with were very friendly. That is much appreciated. Lastly, free WIFI is always a bonus.
My only complaint, and it may sound stupid, is that I had to pay $1.25 for Keurig coffee prior to the 7:30 continental breakfast start time. I am up between 4:30 and 5:30 so I can't wait until 7:30 for a cup of java! I thought the coffee should be complementary, especially if you're not going to have a coffee pot in the rooms. All said, I will stay here again in the future.
