Good for Families

This resort is great for families. There is a playground on site and a separate swimming pool for the kids. The rooms are also usually quite spacious, allowing enough room for the family to spread out and relax. The layout of the hotel in general is good and the grounds around the resort are all immaculately presented and maintained.
