Pool Bar

So, it’s not ALL about the kids!

The swimming pool is divided into 2 sections: 1 section is for anybody under 21 years of age and 1 section is for anybody 21 and over.

With palm trees, hibiscus flowers, and great music playing, swimming up to the pool bar and enjoying one of their amazing mixed drinks was a luxury we couldn’t pass up.

And after you’ve drank some of those frou-frou drinks and eaten all of that great food, there’s the option to exercise in their fitness center or take one of their fitness classes offered on the property.
