All in all it was a good vacation. The resort is really beautifully kept and has a lot of activities to offer for a wide range of ages and interests. The pool is small but clean and fun, and the meals, which are part of the all-inclusive (high) fee, are satisfactory.
The only issue we had was with the rooms. We were staying at the "updated" Oklahoma building, which we though would be newer and more modern. However, we were very disappointed to find it to be old, bland, hardly furnished (no sofa or any place to sit other than the bed and two chairs), and most of all - DARK. Luckily we had a lot to do outside the rooms so didn't need to be there very much, but considering the high rates and publicity these rooms got, this was a huge disappointment.
