Families with teenage children will also appreciate the variety of events for both kids and adults every night. One guest praised how the hotel was full of kid-friendly options and it was fun watching families enjoy themselves. The mini disco for kids was something that many children enjoyed and the hotel staff were always making sure everyone was having a good time. Families also appreciated being allowed to check in early with their young children and one even mentioned being provided with a baby's crib. However, there were some negative reviews regarding the mini disco consisting of an animator trying to engage children to dance around the bar area and that the menu was quite poor for kids. It's also worth noting that the hotel may not be safe for small children as some areas were not well kept.
