There is not a DVD player. We took a poratable DVD player and it was simple to hook it up with standard AV 3 wire plugs. I am pretty sure the TV in our room has S video also. Not sure what hook ups your computer has but if you have some way of using standard AV or S video you should be fine. We did end up using our DVD player some since it rained so much while we were there in December. If it had not rained I doubt we would have ever used it.
Sometimes leaving the room can be a problem. It's a romancey, 'Couples'y sort of thing! ;-) Take your laptop and if you can't watch your shows by connecting to the TV then just put the laptop on your, err, lap and watch the shows like that. I agree that some shows are much more enjoyable when viewed on a bigger screen though and the laptop computer can be an irritation too! ;-))
