I'll just list the pros and cons Cons: Bug bites showed up on day 2, started itching on day 3, and are still itching a month later. Drink service at the pool bar was the slowest I've ever soon. Only 1 bartender at all times and one person walking around taking orders to those in chairs so you can only...
