All of these are included in the price of your stay! And thats not all… Kids 17 and under stay, play and eat free on all dates up to the 23rd of December. This also applies in 2019 – the only exception is Christmas time! You also get a whopping $1500 resort credit if you stay for seven nights or $2500 resort credit if you stay for twelve nights or more! You really need no spending money.
