Hi, I would do the swim up suite if all your kids can swim! Its so nice to have the option to just go out on your small patio and hop right into the pool. I would have loved to have a swim up suite but my kids are little and both cant swim and since there is not a gate blocking the patio to the pool it was not for us. Maybe next year!

"families with kids may wants rooms closer to the water park"
"Put furniture in living area that is not as hard as a rock. It was not really good for sitting."
"Swim out master suite- well worth the upgrade if you have a child that still naps! "
"Room tip 2381 and 2385 had partial oceanview and des in a calm area."
"There are no bad rooms. Great rooms cost more. Preference given to Club Melia members"
US$290 - US$701 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
