Family holidays can be expensive, especially when you’re in a resort area! Well, a new grocery store has opened about a mile away from our hotel that we think you need to know about! If you are up for a walk and in need of some groceries for your trip, this is a great place to start.

This is a package you can pay extra for that includes unlimited front-of-the line privileges, a private tour guide for you and a small group, and a buffet lunch. I got a little picture happy with this post, so I hope you all enjoy! Continue reading

This is one of the HoJo’s favorite ways to give back to the community, and of course it all comes down to what we do best: FAMILY FUN! Continue reading

We’ve recently upgraded the TV’s in our guest rooms to shiny new 37″, LED, High Definition televisions! The high definition crisp picture is much clearer than before, and most of them are wall mounted to give the rooms even MORE space! Check them out: :) Continue reading
