After exploring the surrounding theme parks, retreat to the palm-fringed pool which has a sandy beach, two whirlpool tubs, a water slide and a nearby beach volleyball court. As well as sunbathing, you can participate in poolside activities, hire a cabana, listen to live DJ music or dive underwater to hear alternate music on the special sound system. Outdoor films are screened here in the evenings and there is a poolside beach club which provides a pool table and waiter service.
There’s a shallower children's pool and a kids' club, Camp Lil' Rock, which appeals to children who are between the ages of 4 to 14 years old (available for a supplement charge). Supervised kids’ club activities include storytelling, arts and crafts, games, and movie screenings. Elsewhere, you will find a spacious games arcade where you can play air hockey and classic video games.
