The good... my kids (aged 3 and 5) had a blast at the kids club! The facilities and grounds are beautiful and lush. We loved that there were local crafts people at the resort. Gym was good. The spa was great!
The bad... we were put into the closest room to the wedding reception room (which is open air) , and there is no sound proofing in the room. There is a inch plus margin under the door. With all of the tile, the sound just carries. We go to bed early with young kids and felt like we were in the middle of the wedding receptions which lasted past 11pm. The guests would also stand outside our door and try to talk over the music. The microphone and applause were the worst...one reception had karaoke...!!! We asked to be moved, but they didn't oblige. The room was also a handicap-accessible room which meant that the entire bathroom flooded everytime you took a shower. This water got tracked into the room which isn't good when you have two young kids running around on tile. Our kids also prefer to take baths. Just not the best room for a family with young kids. I would think that the ages of the people in the room would be taken into consideration when assigning rooms. Our request to move fell on deaf ears until two nights before the end of our week-long stay.
The pool was great for size and variable areas that accommodated a wide range of ages. However, it was FREEZING!!! Not just brisk until you get adjusted to it...FREEZING. The kids still went in, but the adults stayed out for the most part. Hard to do when you have little ones. The girls came out BLUE.
Due to the trade winds, the beach was unused. Nice for walks but a bit chilly and sand-blown for sitting this time of the year. Had some water toys for use, but the wind was prohibitive. Most people checked out items only to return them very quickly.
Scuba diving operator on-site was rarely at the desk. Big waste of time trying to track them down.
We arrived early..5amish. Would have preferred that the desk say that a room would be available at their normal check-in time as opposed to being told repeatedly to check back in a little while. Again, another waste of time. Overall, loved the kids club but would probably look into going at a warmer time with less trade winds if that's possible. Preferred our second week's Mamanuca's location and warmth.
