    I think the 11 & 9 year old would love it! Great water park, tattoos, snorkeling & air jumper and pretty decent food!

    Even though it's always windy in our little part of the world, try to go on a day that it's not too windy as you will not enjoy snorkeling when the waves are pushing you into the shore. Swim fins will help, and you can get everything you need to snorkel on the island, but it's a lot of money just to sit onshore and eat all day. Water clarity is great so you get to see lots of fish. Enjoy!

    It was on our schedule for last year until weather hurt our plans. We will bring the kids this year maybe midway through our week just to break things up. Wifey and myself are fine doing absolutely nothing but lay in the sun but kids at 11 & 14 get bored after first few days.
