The place to be when you want to entertain young kids. Thery never run out of activities for families - free movies under the sky etc. It also has a wave pool and a small beach. So many dining options for all types of budget

NIce place, great for families with kids. It is quite small and not so many options for food and activities. As we are a young couple, it was quite boring.
