1. Location.
2. Lots of traditional accommodation. The Turquoise and white Pacific Wharf chalets actually look better than they did originally.
3. Splash Mk II fun-pool is physically nearly just as goodas it always was (minus the broken ghost and noise in the blackout flume). Only it is now sadly always massively overcrowded and not very enjoyable. A crap outdoor pool during the sunny weather doesn't help.
4. Staff are all very friendly (don't know about the Redcoats - you hardly ever see them).
5. Still has an under-cover juvenile funfair.
