Went on the jet skiing ride with Akuila and it was amazing. He was a great guide as he showed us around the islands. We have two kids, 9 & 11 who also had the best time feeding the fish from the skis!!! Highly recommend Akuila and Castaway Island.

Adults only pool is being used by kids and staff seems to be OK with it. It didn't feel good when I left my two kids with my husband...
