We started in the quiet pool, which is in the Preferred Club area. We didn't make it down until around 11:30 a.m., and we were able to find a spot pretty quickly.
I will say the drinks are easier to get at this pool than the main activity pool. It was not nearly as crowded.
We then spent some time in the beach in this area. It is closest to the marina, and the waves are smaller in this area.
After a couple hours, we got hungry, so we decided to try Las Olas, which is by the activity pool. The service was pretty good. We got our beers and food pretty quickly. We had to wait a while for our second beer, but it wasn't a big deal. I didn't like the fries--they weren't cooked long enough for me. The guacamole they bring you when you sit down is delicious. The best part of the meal was dessert. It was chocolate mousse with strawberries. Yum!
Also, I don't remember reading this anywhere, but there are snack bars by both pools where you can get some quick food. We haven't tried this, but the nachos I saw looked pretty tasty.

|The boy loves dessert, too.|
One other thing--when we booked our excursion, I saw a sign there that said airport transfers $12. I would suggest doing your research before you book your transfer. We paid $72, and I'm beginning to think we might have over paid. Oh well! But you could save some money. ☺
