I didn't know what to expect at Key Lime Cove, but I was blown away upon arrival! Curb-side luggage/bell hop pick-up; Check-in was fast and very easy; The rooms were great with the basic amenities too. The water park was AWESOME! More than enough room for all the guests; water temp was perfect; safety was #1; the food was average,...

Jamie T., We’re ecstatic that you were “blown away” by our resort! It sounds like check in and check out were a breeze and you found your tropical-themed accommodations to be comfortable. Our 65,000 square foot waterpark, Lost Paradise, is always 84 degrees and sunny! We’re thrilled your family had an “awesome” time and felt safe in our waterpark! Safety...

When we arrived at the waterpark we had to wait in line for 45 minutes only to find out that our reservations weren't as we expected. I was expecting two rooms for two nights on a special coupon for $129.99. I found out my reservation was only for one room, two nights for 275$ a night! Who knew they would...

Hi Candice, We’re thrilled that your kids had a blast in our Lost Paradise Indoor Waterpark, Leapin’ Lizards Fun-tivities Center, and our RipTide Reef Arcade. We’re sorry to hear that the grown-ups did not have as much fun. We do apologize for the confusion and wait you experienced at check-in. I spoke with our Director of Rooms, Mr. Richard Sasso,...

I stayed there in spring break in April. It was really fun. Overall it was great especially cleanliness. Rooms and restroom were clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Water park was also fantastic. Laundry was a plus there. One disappointment was no microwave in small rooms. Otherwise everything was perfect.

I took my family here for spring break all was good,but the food. The breakfast buffet could use help it lacks what a 14 dollar buffet should have.

Besides the kids being totally entertained the whole time, the place was more than accomodating to the special needs members of our huge family group (17). We felt the park was safe enough the kids had freedom to explore and alot of seating for them to come back to us and 'check in' once in a while. Staff was great,...

We had a great time at this waterpark! My advice is do not check in around 4pm, you will only wait in a long line. Rather, wait until later, about 5. Help for baggage may be more accessible too. There was no line seen. Also, skip the in-house eateries for places outside the park. Aside from the ice cream parlor,...

Great place to bring your kids on a mini vacation. Very affordable. Just should have valet parking considering its a long walk from parking lot up to the resort. However I would strongly recommend this place. The staff very friendly and always speak and interact with you as well as your kids.
