Tight security. * Other than price (high, but worth every penny), there is absolutely no reason to...

The kids club at Aqualina is the best! I've been to the Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton kids clubs and none compare to this place. Oscar and the staff are responsible, fun and engaging. My kids love coming here. Easter was a blast. There was an egg hunt, stuffed animal making, crafts, inflatable's and games. Awesome!
