Airport/Bus Ride: Airport was small but had sufficient staff to manage crowd, bathrooms had paper and soap. Bus ride was 90 minutes but went by fast, even arriving after dark, due to entertaining bus host. Bathroom bus functioned but did not lock. Cold beer was available for purchase on board the bus but no water - pick some up at...

This was our first family vacation (with kids) outside of Canada. We had a great time and lots of fun. The resort was very big with lots of walking. The rooms were a bit dated and can use some updating. The food was very good but the buffet could use more variety as it seemed to be the same everyday....
