Nice Vacation Resort

Pros: Free breakfast
It's a very nice and comfortable resort for family vacations. I went there with my parents and my brother. They had plenty of activites to keep people at all age occupied. If I have to pick one thing for them to improve, that would be the food varieties. They do have a number of restaurants there but if they can provide even more choices, it will be great.
