The Inn is a perfect family hang-out. The kids love Club Cabana’s hot tubs and pools (we go swimming at least once a day), and there’s always something tasty on Casey’s Kid’s menu. For me, I love that there’s a fridge in every room, and that I can request a microwave...it makes small family meals a cinch.
