    Yes young children use it, in fact many non guests come for the day to visit but it's expensive. I found it very disappointing that guests had to pay $US25-30 just to quickly visit the pool.

    You will need to go naked there. Men and women are separated. Also, they provide gym clothes and towels. But you will need your own sneakers to workout in the gym.

    No, it's not within walking distance. You will need to take a taxi - which is affordable. I took a taxi from the airport and that was quite costly - but then there would be other cheaper modes of transfer.
