Miscellaneous Information (back to top)

 

Family Interactive (CONTINUED):  

• During the course of these sessions participants do engage in various games, activities and competitions, all designed to bring families together in a spirit of togetherness and mutual appreciation of one another. These "games" stimulate creativity, physicality and intellectually challenge participants and are conducted in a competitive yet relationship building environment. Over the course of these sessions we continuously attempt to strengthen the bonds of family unity, open up clear channels of communications between all family members and ultimately help develop ways in which all family members can live with one another in an improved harmony. Sessions conclude with a variety of question and answer dialogues between parents and child designed to elicit open and honest responses and establish some building blocks for a better communication that hopefully will be taken home with themselves.  

2018 Student Group Policy Student/Spring Break groups for guests 21 years of age or older are strictly on a request basis and will be reviewed by the hotel on a case by case basis. Upon check-in, the hotel will request proof of age and a signed liability agreement. Unruly or disruptive guests may be removed from the property at their own expense.  

If a Student /Spring Breaker Group is accepted:  

• Minimum age requirement is 21 years of age or older.  

• The Hotel may request proof of age in the form of passport or official ID.  

• Each room must submit a signed liability agreement upon check-in.  

At all other RIU properties student groups/spring breakers (either groups or individuals, regardless of age) are not allowed at any time during the year.  

Guests disturbing or generating complaints from other guests or hotel may be removed from the property, at their own expense. Parties in rooms are not permitted.  

Family Interactive:  

• The program is designed for families with children between the ages of 4-13. The program includes 2 full day sessions offered 3 times a week and the fee entitles you to participate in any, or all, of the sessions which will take place; Friday/Saturday, Tuesday/Wednesday and Sunday/ Monday running from 10:00am-6:00pm any day of the week. This schedule permits an opportunity to participate for all guests arriving any day of the week.  

A hotel executive will introduce each 2 day session and attempt to motivate participants and generate the enthusiasm and commitment conducive to maximizing the benefits to be derived from the program.  

• Parents and children will undergo this process together and separately - children under the supervision of our own Oki Kids Club personnel - and the full scope and objective of the program will be explained. We will sensitize parents to the importance of establishing a qualitative and interactive relationship with their children and provide methods to further this goal. Children are encouraged to develop the same skills but from a perspective consistent with their age - highlighting the value of interacting through a series of "play" activities undertaken with their parents.  

Minimum Age Requirements:  

• At least one person 21 years or older is required in every room during the months of February through May.  

• During the remainder of the year, at least one person 18 years or older is required in every room.
