Great family resort
Posted Feb 12, 2017
Once again I had a great experience booking thru Expedia. Their website, app and customer service make booking and traveling a breeze! So thank you! Now onto this vaca...
We had initially reserved a premier room, but I called the resort and upgraded to a King Plunge Pool room. We had a king bed and they brought two twins beds in for our daughters, we had plenty of room still. The bathroom situation wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, there is a glass door to the toilet and shower. I hung a robe on the toilet room door and a towel on the shower panel for extra privacy.
The waterpark on resort is great for kids under 12 I'd say. Our 12 year old wasn't a fan, but she's used to big Disney World water parks. Our 9 year old loved it!
We didn't make use of the kids club other than our 9 year old went to the Ruby Ranch for horse grooming one day.
The restaurants are all great! I thought I wouldn't care for it much being that all but one are open air, but we absolutely loved it! They are arranged along the property so that there is always a slight breeze. And that view!
We did Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios and it was amazing! Highly recommended for everyone. Photos on disc were $200 extra for our family of 4, but definitely worth it. There was over 100 photos of our family alone.
We used the free shuttle, left 3 1/2 hours before our departure flight and did not do Club MoBay. Lines were short on a Tuesday so it gave us time to eat at the Bobsled restaurant before our flight.
