Great for family vacation!
The room was a little small and outdated, however there was plenty to do at the resort so we didn't spend much time in the room.

It was Just Ok
What a beautiful place to stay. Palamino island was stunning. The service however throughout the hotel was very slow. Check In Self Parking Breakfast and Dinner were all very slow. There was only one tram working and that was very slow. It was very frustrating. If you don't mind slow service then you will be fine.
