Our visit was during April vacation and very busy. Our room was clean and the food at the restaurants was very good. The main pool and hot tub were used by kids almost all the time so we never used the hot tub. Might have been nice to have a hot tub kid free. Resort staff was very polite and helpful. Being on the beach to go for a walk everymorning was great,
