Great stay at Carnival City
The room was perfect and was suitable for my family. I had to wake up a porter in the early hours of the morning to take a golf cart as we had to meet a little way away and although it was very early he was still extremely friendly. The pool could do with a bit of a clean, but a lovely time was had by all.
