Access is complimentary for hotel guests or for those purchasing reserved seating.

The one pool is family friendly. There is no lifeguard on duty.

Food and drink service is available during the busier pool season. I have not been to the pool during off-season so I am not sure how strict they are on bringing outside food and drinks to the pool during this time. I do know that once poolside service is available they will not allow outside food and beverages.
