Finest Indoor water park we stay at. Been going to Kalahari for several years now, and it is a big place, both the hotel and the waterpark. We take several kids with us, so we usually book at least two adjoining rooms, we have done all three once. The center room, with one bedroom and a sleeper sofa has the...

We spent last weekend at Kalahari with 3 teenage grandsons. We all had a great time. Our room was roomy and accommodated all of us. Everyone was super friendly and everything was kept clean. The Waterpark was really nice with plenty of attractions to keep everyone happy. The on site restaurants were decently priced and we never needed to leave...

Rooms were clean, we had the Nomad Room and it was HUGE! Waterpark was fun as always, had some over priced drinks :) Food was a little sub-par from when we were there a year ago. Had some trouble with our dinner, but management quickly rectified it. They are adding on to the outdoor waterpark and will open this summer,...

We went to Kalahari for an overnight stay. Had a wonderful time, kids all had a blast. Hotel room was clean with the exception of the refrigerator and microwave, they had not been cleaned. It is a great place for families and would highly recommend. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We have been going for there years, the last 3 times we went we had horrible service, dirty rooms, the hotel allowed Marijuana to be smoked inside. So all the hallways smelled. I had my 3 young children ask me what it was. The employees tips me they tried to find the source. And also used air sprays to cover...

Four seniors stayed for two nights and had a blast. We enjoyed everything and loved the adult only swim up bar both outside and inside. We ate at the Market Place, Reserves, and another restaurant and the pizza place. All food was good and reasonably priced. Will return again.

We took our 4 kids to the water park for the night. The water park was great, and there is so much to do in there for all ages. We were on a Sunday and it wasn't very busy at all. Monday morning there was barely anyone in the park, so we were able to ride on anything we wanted...
