Color cable TV in the living room area, built in am/fm cassette player which can be set to play in every room, or in sections of the villa.

They have a poolside cafe which was open from 7am-4pm daily. They have an excellent deal where for $2.99 you choose 3 of the following items for breakfast: Eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, potatoes, white toast, wheat toast, French toast. It was great getting breakfast for 6 people for under $20.

Pool Description/Comments:

1 Kiddie Pool with a mushroom shaped waterfall, which our children loved. 1 "adult" pool which is heated and open 24hrs. We met a lot of nice folks from all over the US and abroad at the pool area. The mosquitoes were somewhat bad. More so than the summers here in NJ, so we didn't sit around the pool much when we weren't in the water. But in the pool the mosquitoes didn't bother us much.

Other Comments:

Our location was excellent. We were right near the kiddie pool and right at the entrance to the path to the regular pool and cafe, we could also see the playground from our deck, which was nice when the kids wanted to play. A great place, we always stay there, and will again next time we go. It is very quiet and private. A definite break from the Disney hotels with kids running up and down the halls, and people checking in at all hours of the night. It's like being at home, you have your own villa, when you go inside, you don't hear a thing, and even when you sit out on your deck, it is a MUCH more laid back, relaxing experience than staying on site, in my opinion.
