This was an incredible gem while staying at our hotel! My kids had the best time here. The food was great and so fun. This was a really big waterpark to be indoors. Our family loved it and we will def stay again

My family and I spent a Saturday evening at Watiki recently. This was my second experience at this facility and unfortunately I have been less than impressed each time. My observations are as follows: 1. It is so expensive....almost $100 for my husband, myself, and my children ages 12, 7, and 3. 2. The water was COLD. My three year... More

so-called life guards on-duty are not doing anything at all about very rowdy kids and people having beer in the hot tub, someone will get very hurt or even deown and they would not know that it is going on or what to do. Where are the adults????

Was a beautiful, clean place, but so very crowded the whole week we were there. We stayed at the Residence Inn, which is connected to the water park, & we each had to pay $10.00 to use the park. We thought if you were staying there it should be no cost. There was no other pool just to relax and... More

We stayed one afternoon and evening at the LaQuinta. Room could have used some upgrading but it wasn't terrible. Staff was friendly. Our young girls loved he waterpark. However, it was a weekend night and it got very crowded later in the evening; glad we took advantage of the later afternoon and early morning access. Food was ok. The arcade... More

My young kids (ages 5 and 2) had a great time in the lazy river and the pool area but the water park was definitely not 84 degrees as it says on it's website and the water on the jungle gym area was so cold it we didn't even use it which was a big disappointment for my 5 year... More

My son loves this place, minus the price!! Wish it could go lower so I can go there as much as I can!! My son has autism, I have met several of families that have children with autism I guess it is something that make them feel comfortable to be around other kids!!

It's not really worth the money and it's ridiculously overcrowded. No place to swim and can't even use the hottub ...

Looks fun from the outside but has limited abilities to handle the overcrowded conditions. And I dont think they keep track of how many people are in the area at a given time (capacity). Just add more people Right? Food is horrible and very expensive. Life guards were constantly on their cell phones. The place is starting to show no... More
