AAA Inspector 591: Families get the best of both worlds in the pool area. The kids love the play area and lazy river, and I love the lavish treatment at the adult pool.

Complimentary transportation to and from the parks is available on a luxurious motor coach.

Rather relax? Take a stroll through the acres of tranquil gardens or unwind by the adults-only pool in your very own bungalow.

Each room is equipped with an iPad-based system, a Bose Bluetooth speaker and a device-charging station. Be sure to check out the spectacular fireworks chandelier in the lobby at night.

AAA Inspector 52: The pool area layout and the way it spills out onto the beach is very cool!
Located on 14 acres of beautiful beach, this upscale resort has amazing views. There are a plethora of activities to indulge in or just relax at the pool or on the beach. The standard guest rooms are quite roomy, but for extra space try booking one of the corner suites or even a bungalow. Regardless of which type you choose, all offer plush comforts and enhanced technology. Every night live music is featured.
