Was smaller than we expected but the kids had some fun there. Not enough slides and such to handle the large crowds they had.

I really enjoyed this resort this past weekend & so did my family. It wasn't over crowded. There was tons to do. It is a smaller water park but that doesn't limit the fun. The pool & hot tub were clean & the lifeguards were very attentive. I really enjoyed the wave & the waterfalls. I will definitely be back.

Admittedly, this isn't a large fancy indoor water park. But they've managed to put in all the necessities. My kids 10 to 14 were fine here for 2.5 hours.

We were disappointed that the carnival rides were gone. We were not told that they no longer had all of the carnival rides. There was one left but it wasn't running. They said that it needed to be tested before it could run but no one was testing it.

Over priced for what you get. Staff is clueless. Restaurant isn't worth it. At least 20 people were waiting in line & no hostess even acknowledged any of us. While there asked if it would be less waiting to order to our room & she said absolutely. Went to room to order, called & she said we aren't delivering tonight???... More
