We really enjoyed the many things to do inside in the winter and looking forward to the even more numerous options outside in the summer. There is a lot of space to navigate and I have trouble walking so the wheelchair they supplied came in very handy. The second trip will be better since we know what to expect. The...

The staff did very well handling the high volume of people in the resort. We were attending for a cheer competition. The restaurant offered a great deal that children eat for 99 cents with the purchase of and adult entree in the Reserve Restaurant. Almost everything costs extra. The value of the water park passes with the guest rooms was...

Attended a cheer convention and looking for a restaurant to eat inside the convention center/hotel. They were not prepared at any of the restaurants for a cheer convention same food in all of them. Wait was 20 minutes to get a table and there were 10 empty tables. Needless to say we did not wait. Slow slow slow. Instead had...

We were here for a cheer competition. They kept the convention center clean and easily accessible. Restrooms were kept clean all day. Parking wasn't a problem either. I do feel the day passes for the water park are way over priced. Your best bet is to book early and get a room that includes water park passes. Food is good...

We live on South Bass Island. During the winter most places are closed. School is on winter break comma so the island is very quiet. The kids are all gone on vacation mom and dad need a little getaway. We stayed in a lodge room, that is like being at home, with a kitchen, living room, and a king bedroom....

This place is huge! There's so much to do here between the waterpark, arcade, and special resort activities that there really is no need to leave during your stay. There are several resturant options in the resort so you're bound to find something to match even the pickiest eaters.

Very polite and helpful staff. Room was very nice and water park was crowded but still was able to enjoy the water slides. What a fun place to take kids! The breakfast buffet was excellent. The accommodations were extremely nice and very clean.
