Fodor's Review

Impressive grounds, inviting lobbies in the twin hotels that make up the complex, and eye-catching adornments are hallmarks of this American-friendly resort. First-rate meeting and banquet facilities make this a good choice for conventions and weddings, which account for much of the business. There are various levels of accommodations and service here including The Level, VIP Royal Service, and Romance Suites and guests paying these supplements generally have a most enjoyable stay, whereas those in the older, original rooms, and the non-renovated family rooms, have definite complaints. Restaurants are many but the standout is Gabi, yet it is exclusive to Level guests. The Flintstones-themed kids' clubs is a creative concept.
