We cancelled our reservations to stay in Chicago and come here- SO HAPPY we did! Our family enjoyed the stay- waterpark: clean, attentive lifeguards, and a nice mix of slides/pools/lazy river! The arcade: clean, actually got tickets from the games to get a decent prize for all four kids. Anna Chovies: great pizza deal and it was tasty. Coffee in... More

Loved every minute of it! Key Lime Cove knows how to take care of their guests. We have stayed there a few times and the convenience and close proximity Gurnee Mills and Six Flags. Never seems over crowded except if your looking for that optimum parking spot.

Contrary to the resort FAQs the waterpark does sell access to the waterpark to non resort guests. They arrived in a swarm on July 29th during our 2 day visit which prompted our family to leave the resort without a refund for the unused day. The management response was that because the resort was not at full capacity they sell... More

Ourselves and another couple and all of our kiddos went to key lime cove for a mini vacation. We had a great time overall. The food in the restaurants is mediocre. Drink specials are good during the week. The one concern/ frustration we had was in the pools. The lifeguards on 2 separate days told us that our kids couldn't... More

We loved our stay at the Key Lime Cove. The resort exceeded my expectations. We went there to start our vacation in the Chicago area and to celebrate my eleven year old son's birthday. We knew he would love the water park area, but the whole family enjoyed the resort-feel and all of the extra amenities. We had a lot... More

Loved the lazy river! Loved the slides... loved how fast we got to ride them! Loved how lifeguards were always very watchful and were always asking if we knew the rules... made me feel safe! I loved the arcade area, so clean and organized... I enjoyed having a short chat with our bell boys, very polite and helpful...

We stayed here for a long weekend of softball tournaments. The room keys are your water park wrist band which was super nice. It was clean and very accommodating to our team. They have a shuttle to the Gurnee mall that my teens were able to hop on when they weren't joining us at the games. Very convenient.

Me and my parents wanted a quick getaway that was fun for my daughter before school started back up again. I feel like this could be cheaper if you planned it better or did not get the larger rooms. We ended up getting the 2 bedroom Toucan Suite and we requested to be close to the elevator. My parents used... More
