Kalahari is what it would consider the best of what Wisconsin Dells has to offer when it comes to water park/hotel resorts. It's huge,no really! It caters to many different options like restaurants, Double Cut Grill is superb,pricy but worth it, cafe, Sweet Shack candy shop (gourmet chocolates, yum!), a bar,a pretty big arcade with its own Ferris Wheel! A...

My favorite thing about Kalahari resort is that its not overcrowded! We felt appreciated as customers that stays in the resort, after recent visit to terrible Mt.Olymus-Kalahari brings back faith for indoor family fun in winter season :) Its clean, and thers not too many outsiders. KIds (7 years olad and two 15 yr old) had tons of fun and...

For the cost of the room, the three of us got admission to the water part and amusement park. This made this an amazing value. We stumbled in bundled up in heavy winter wear and ended up spending four days in swims suits and summer wear. That was a treat inn itself. We loved the indoor water park. It had...

I have stayed here numerous times for conventions and have had the kids join me a couple of times. They always enjoy themselves and are never bored. Plenty to do between the huge waterpark and the adventure area that has go-carts, rope climbing, bowling, arcade, simulators, you name it.

Went here over Thanksgiving weekend. It was a nice waterpark, and the rooms were nice. The only thing is, there is only one main water park for you to go to, which can get boring after one day. This place is for a more younger crowd too. I also thought this place was a bit over priced as well...

We were excited to have you visit over Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you didn't find more to do! We also have the 100,000 sq ft Theme Park too, which is a ton of fun! Likewise, with the recent addition of the Mud Hut Swim-up Bar, hopefully you were able to relax a bit too. Did you try...

This was our first vacation all year and I have to say we're glad we choose the Kalahari. The rooms we rented were suites and they were big enough for 4 kids and 2 adults and then some. We bought the Water park and Amusement passes and stayed for 3 days. There is so much to do and see here...

We stayed during Thanksgiving weekend. Crowded but the staff was quick and efficient and went over expectations to satisfy. Donna at the concierge desk is super sweet! Took advantage of Thanksgiving buffet which had more amazing food choices than I expected. Buffet service was excellent! Stayed in the Royal Two Room family suite. Our second stay in this room- very...

This was my second experience at the Kalahari for a conference and it did not disappoint. The hotel room was very large, and clean. The view wasn't the best as it looked over a back alley between the hotel and the water park, also some early morning noise from this area. The conference center was more than adequate and all...

I have to say, even though you don't enjoy waterparks, I am thrilled to hear you still love coming to Kalahari! Even better, sounds like you were able to mix business with pleasure. Always a plus! Thank you again for your time and visiting us! We will see you again soon (hopefully sooner rather than later). Take care!

The hotel itself is very nice, with several restaurants in it, everything from an informal buffet to a very high class steak house. There are also several tort/pastry shops in the building. The rooms are nice. I have stayed in two room suites and two queen bed single rooms, and both were very nice. We never spend much time in...

We went there for two days around Thanskgiving. Price was reasonable and if you put two extra people on the sofa it works quite well. The standard room was much larger than your typical motel room. The fridge to our surprise was larger and we were able to fit a lot of stuff there. TV was small though. We did...
