The room was great re: view, but the bed was not made properly and fairly uncomfortable and lacking linens. Also there were no chairs for the deck, so that was odd. Otherwise it was fine. I wish they had a bigger room service menu.

Sorry not a toddler friendly pool but across the road in the park there is an awesome kids playground with water play area. And further up the path is a great community pool area with suitable kids pool.
