The main feature of this resort has to be the waterpark. And when you're finished on the water chutes, you can work out in the gym or try your hand at volleyball. Golfers can also head over to the green. Meals are served up in the buffet restaurant, and you can grab a bite at the pool bar or the eatery inside the waterpark as well.
