The pool facilities are great for children, complete with lifeguards (who are quite intense I might add). The rooms are fine- simple. The beds are comfortable, washroom was clean. But the curtains suck (the sun shines right through the sides), and the air conditioner was loud and made our kids cough the entire time.
