I like how easy and quick it was to access al available departments of the resort. We didn’t have to wait long for food or at the bar. The pool was clean and well looked after. Our room was tidy but the back of the curtains were dirty and you could see it from the veranda and the bathroom roof was starting to grow a little bit of mould.

When we booked in we were directed to our rooms but the lift was out of order and the reception staff didn't warn us or appear to know about it. It's uncomfortable sitting on a toilet when the toilet roll holder is under your armpit. The food at Shoreline restaurant was mediocre.

My family had an excellent time.. The kids and wife lived the pool - it was amazing and we were there until 9 pm. We liked the breakfast buffet and all staff were incredibly friendly... Our Receptionist (perhaps she seemed to be the Duty Manager) was very helpful and explain us thoroughly the resort facilities .. We were invited to join the Doplphin Training at 8:45 am and it was a very pleasant and private experience. This is offered to hotel guests before SeaWorld opens to the public. We checked out and after left to the parks and regretted we had to leave .. So we decided to come back for one more day and we are sure to have a good time once again .. Truly recommend .. The receptionist that checked us in on second time was also very helpful and took care of our family.
