I believe our room was a Deluxe King. We had a king size bed, large bathroom and a sitting area with couch, chair and flat screen tv. Even though it was not a suite it was very nice.

If I remember correctly there are balconies around the pool area. Depending on when you will be visiting they have outside patios near the activity area. Those looked very nice and comfy.
