Our family used the snorkel gear which was in pretty good shape, my brother and 3 of our kids used the bicycles a couple of times. The resort's activities staff offers a bicycle excursion to a fine snorkel spot on the northwestern coast. About 5 miles each way. My brother also took out the Sunfish a few times and said it was in good shape. It seems like as long as it was not too windy, the boat was in use all of the time. My dd tried the rock climbing wall, but was not too good at it. But it IS there for those who want the challenge. Make sure you pack your sneakers!

Our family also made use of the billiard tables (free of charge) and the game room (pay to use the games).

I have a list of their daily activities here. You will see many of the times of activities and types offerings there. Kids Club offerings are here.
