          Hi I have a reservation in August but I am now concerned on reading the reviews that the pool options may not be great for us. I have stayed at a Hotel in Florida before where there was a 'Club' for members and it felt very much like I was interrupting their club time by being pool side and as a result, I am not keen to repeat this. My kids are teens, aged 14, 16 and 18, can they access the adult pool area? Thanks
