We had not been to the dells in 5+ years and enjoyed our time at the Kalahari. We stayed here as part of a baseball tournament. The kids ages 10 and 13 had a blast, we had a nice room on the Sands side. The rooms are big, bigger than a normal hotel room. They have a microwave and fridge...

Thank you for taking the time to fill out a review. I am happy to hear that your 10 and your 13 year old had a blast. The Sands Building is a peaceful escape from the main resort while still on property and just a skywalk away. I hope you were able to experience both the Indoor and Outdoor Waterparks....

We were going to make this an annual event but there's this: We booked a villa 6/20/14 - 6/22/14. There were 19 of us (including an infant) so we all brought food.The refrigerator was not cold. We called for service and were told it was working properly. The next day, it still was not cold. We called again and were...

We stayed at Kalahari from June 30 - July 1st this was our first trip. The resort is huge and there are a lot of stairs (especially if you do the water slides) so bring your walking shoes. We had a 3 bedroom 3 bath suite. The layout was very functional allowing for enough group time but space for privacy...

We love water parks and this one is fantastic. With an indoor and outdoor park it offers something for all weather and every type of activity you could want.

I stayed in a group of 6 people at Kalahari in March and it was amazing. Clean facilities, fun environment, and the best part is that you can walk to and from the indoor attractions without going outside. It was very convenient.

Thank you for the great review! We pride ourselves in keeping everything under one roof. The Indoor Waterpark is definitely the world's coolest. And the Mud Hut Swim-Up Bar and hot tub is by far my favorite part of the Indoor Waterpark. Great choice! Thank again for the review and we hope to see you back again soon!
