As soon as we reached our room the smell of marijuana was so stong I was concerned about the children( I complained to the staff and they said they would spray something). The bathroom had the hair of the previous occupant all over the bathroom, I was so disgusted I...

Lifeguards were excellent - they did a wonderful job of keeping people safe and helping people learn the rules. Restaurant and housekeeping staff was very courteous as well. We had a great family...

Our family of 5 benefited from a special Kalahari was running during March that gave us 50% off a "combination suite" (essentially two adjoining rooms, but we had two bedrooms, 1 king bed, 2 queens; full kitchen; living area; large dining table; two bathrooms).

Though the rooms were small and we could hear people running all thru the night it was worth the trip for winter months, indoor park was awesome not much wait times for the rides. Somedays in the winter months are little too pricey but if you hit a deal go for it.

The resort is FABULOUS... The water park is always a fun time we adults LOVE the indoor/outdoor hot tub! I would definitely work on the food at the restaurants a bit, they are overpriced for the quality you receive. Ordered a salmon and fettuccine alfredo. salmon was the size of the palm of my hand and the serving of pasta...

Me, my friend and her 7 year old son traveled together and split the cost of our room. On arrival around noon (so we could play in the water park until our room was ready) we went through the check in process. I found it to be highly inefficient that we had to return to the check in desk at...

We spent a weekend here for a cheer competition. 1st thing was they received snow in the area and side walks were not treated and slick. One of my friends actually slipped and fell on the ice. Then came issues with check in. The card system went down. I checked in and paid, was advised we were welcome to enjoy...
