With three large pools areas, including one adult only and featuring a 175-foot water slide and waterfalls, along with a huge ocean-fed lagoon with a white sand beach and plenty of beach activities, the kids will find it hard to complain about being bored here.

Instead you will find snorkel boats and sunset cruises, four different pools with two of them being extremely kid-friendly, and four-man made lagoons perfect for young ones wanting to snorkel.
