My son loves Cabana Bay and it's his favourite hotel. It has a great 50s/60s retro atmosphere. The hotel is clean, tidy and well kept. The rooms are nice and pretty much match up to the pictures and promotions online, they were well fitted out and cleaned regularly and well.

View from Americana building
We used it a lot. Basically, you use your room key as a "credit card". It is quite convenient if you are staying for a few days and want to leave your credit cards in the safe in your room, and don't want to carry a lot of cash around.

Interior is more of a hotel, exterior is like a motel.

"Bayliner building was further from the lobby and dining but the Volcano view was awesome."
"We had a volcano bay room, nice room but very far from everything and a bit nosiy from the water park."
"Ask for the Americana building with a room closest to the diner area to have a short walk from the buses."
