The rooms are approximately 340 square feet with two double beds or one king. The rooms can sleep up to four people plus and infant in a crib. Newer pirate themed rooms are available.

Each "island" has its own quiet pool and white sand beach along the picturesque lake, Barefoot Bay. A 1.4 mile jogging path encircles the lake, making a pleasant place for a stroll or run. At the center of the lake is Caribbean Cay, a large island which connects to the mainland via footbridges.

Located in a different area, Old Port Royale is the main resort building containing the food court, restaurant, arcade and gift shops. Outside Old Port Royale are the main resort pool and marina.
