Older and Smaller, but Good
I went to The Dana with my family-of-five for Spring Break. Overall, The Dana is nice, but there are certain things about it that I am not in love with. The rooms seems a bit older, and smaller. I certainly would have gotten a suite if I would have known that the rooms are essentially only big enough to move around the beds. The AC/heating unit is also older and annoying.

Great family resort
We were happily surprised by the Dana! The property was very nice, even if it's a bit outdated. Our room was on the first floor and we were not expecting a little patio and gate right out to the pool--bonus! They show family movies at the pool at night and we took advantage of Monsters University from the hot tub. The room was small but clean. Ate dinner at Firefly our first night and the food was good and the drink specials even better. They had giant connect 4 and corn hole set up on the lawn. We took advantage of the complimentary bike rentals (they even had a child carrier!) and did a quick ride to Mission Beach for part of the day. They have a free shuttle to Sea World which runs continuously most of the day, which saved us from having to pay for parking at Sea World. Overall we were really happy with our stay at the Dana!
