Fun times
Front desk very helpful when changing accommodations. Indoor water park and pools are great for family fun! Only complaint was that the hide-a-bed mattress had thin spots where the springs could be felt.

Mini Family Getaway
Stay was great. They were extremely accomodating and we have a 13 yo boy with non verbal autism and they were awesome about making sure our accommodations were safe for him.

In a PANIC but all turned out GREAT!
The kids had a great time and everything turned out great, we did have a PANIC though when we asked for extra bedding for the hideaway and was told they didn't have any but would go look. I think what they meant was they didn't have any READY, but that is not what they said. We did finally get bedding and it was nice and warm, thinking it just came out of the dryer. They might think about having a few extras if they can't keep up on laundry. We didn't call down and ask for it until 9:00PM.
