short vacation with kids Posted Mar 24, 2015
Good deal for a family with kids. The water slides and lazy river kept my 9 yr old nephew very busy- he had a great time. My 13 yr old neice enjoyed the the water slides and lazy river, but actually enjoyed the various hot tubs more. They both LOVED the teen zone with air hockey and fus ball and there were some good lawn games. The beach was disappointing; water was grey/brown, not the Carribean blue I am used to in Jamaica. Also, the weather was not great (during Thanksgiving) so we did not get to do the water sports we had hoped. Food was much better than I had expected for such a kid-friendly place- make sure you make reservations as soon as you arrive. The tour of Rose Hall Plantation was an interesting and close by excursion off property. I never found the yoga class on the beach, but we did stumble upon a fun Jamaican Dance class. Room was small- basically two queen size beds, just like a hotel room, not really what I would consider a "resort" room. Lots of positives, some negatives- overall a good value.
