There were a lot of activities for the kids. I didn't like the towel deposit, but I liked the wristband idea for charging items to your room and not needing cash onsite. The waterpark is kind of small, but I think most kids would like it. Not sure about teens.

Room was spacious and comfortable. Yet it is outdated. Bath and shower head could use replacment., Tv for todays rooms is small. And the room was a little musty in smell.
