Ramada Plaza Beach Resort Review

If your family loves the water, splash down at this beachside extravaganza, where activity revolves around a 194,000-gallon pool (allegedly the area's largest) with a spectacular swim-through waterfall that tumbles down from an island oasis; there's also a separate kiddie Splash Garden, a beachwear and beach-toy shop, and an 800-foot private beach. It's a popular spot for conventions, spring break, and families on a budget: there's no charge for additional guests under 18, and roll-away beds are only $10 per night. For an extra-special evening, book an odd-numbered room between 1133 and 1143—the back door of each opens right into the pool.
