Good amenities for kids! Lovely place to stay, staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunate there is no airport shuttle and the shuttle to Surfers, although free for children, $10 each for adults can add up when waiting to go each day during the stay. Overall pleasant stay. Kids had a ball with the water park and jumping pillow/play ground.
