        Surprisingly wonderful experience. The staff all the way from check in to the water park lifeguards were friendly and efficient. It was a busy time but longest wait was 20 minutes. Our hut room in the Sands building was very clean and comfortable.

        We have been twice, and not been disappointed. The water park has lots to do for all ages. And when you need a break, there is plenty more to do. Food is good, great customer service, comfortable rooms.
