    There is a large children's pool with a massive video screen where they play family friendly movies on select nights, and there are water slides and a variety of water toys for the kids to enjoy.👍it

    Great business hotel. Also, not a bad way to combine a business trip with a family trip to Disney! Tip: Checkout the Alligator feeding schedule.

    Great family place! Food expensive but good, so bring snacks and wine to hang out in the room! The movies by the pool at night is awesome!

    Mind blowing atrium all under glass! Have a walk through each themed alcove from swamps to pirate ships. Always a memorable stay, and a refreshing place to return in between a full day of conferences.

    This resort is as huge as it is beautiful. There's really no need to ever leave as there are several restaurants and stores on the premises. If you love sushi, you have to go to Sora.

    Beautiful ambience all over. Eucalyptus steam room at spa is wonderful. Restaurant in sail boar is great, arugala prawn salad=healthy & delicious. Service is very slow at the Cantina, went there 2x.

    Great hotel, very clean rooms which is what I love about this being a Marriott property now. Great pool area for kids, and beautiful flowers and gardens inside.

    Many locations on property that would provide a stunning platform for a wedding. For an outdoor ceremony, consider the "Event Lawn" which is open and airy and surrounded by tropical landscaping.

    Villa de Flora brunches are really good! Only negative note is they do no include and champagne or mimosas which most other brunches around town do. Great food though!

    Ask for an internal view room if you want a balcony to sit on and a view of the courtyard......external room will give you an outside view and no balcony.....

    If you are the age of 13-17 you are stuck in no mans land. You can't go to the gym or the adult pool. The kid pool is to kidish so u wouldn't want to go there.

    Everything that a convention hotel usually is: soulless, drab and ridiculously overpriced. Particularly unnerving: in-room dining charges a mandatory gratuity of 20% AND a 21% service charge. Insane!

    Apparently "Sora" is Japanese for "always closed". It seems that when the hotel is below a certain occupancy, they will close this restaurant, not just early, but completely.
