Excellent family resort with some stuff to add
Posted Apr 16, 2014
We stayed there with my 6 y.o. daughter and enjoyed it immensely, for the most part. Apparently, this place has gained reputation as an excellent family resort so - quite a few parents and grandparents with young kids, which was excellent for us. Vin Pearl Land is a park to behold and a great place for chlldren above 4-5 y.o., so it adds up. There are areas to improve though:
- Kids Club is outright boring. More organized fun/learning activities would be very welcome, and more group games. Hey, a simple Twister would make it so much better!
- Same goes for organized activities outside. I'd hate to see this hotel turn into another Turkish "all-inclusive" with animation all over but a child game or two a day would not hurt.
- The gym is nearly useless. It has two treadmills, and some machines but only dumbells for free weights and no barbells, no power rack, not even a pullup bar. No stretching area, too. I mean, if you build it anyway, why not make it good?
- Hours of operation: heat builds up after 10:30, but the aquapark only opens at 10. Why not start at 8, so the children can be taken in the rooms when the sun is its worst?
