We love going there. The kids Never want to leave. A great place to enjoy for a quick vacation getaway. The temperature inside is always around 80 degrees, feels like the Sun shine state of Florida. We partied and danced with the Tucan bird. The game room is gigantic, loaded with lots of fun. The food taste great. And if... More

Our kids (ages 6 and 9) had SUCH a good time. There is so much to do without the overwhelming carnival atmosphere that some family attractions have. It's great balance of fun and relaxation. Local restaurant offerings were great and in hotel activities and food were very reasonably priced.

I am used to the Dells, but decided that the deal was to good to pass up. Free Great America tickets. It's not a bad place, but far from being a good value. The water park was smaller than Chula vista, or hotel Rome, with far fewer things for adults. It was crowded and a bit overpriced. Line up to... More

When I got to Key Lime Cove, my friends and I were so excited. We had to wait in line for over an hour to check in. We spent our waiting time in the arcade. We used most of our money. We finally got our room and we were very disappointed. The room was small but very clean. In the... More

Waterpark is clean, fun and well monitored. Safe areas for toddlers to play is great. Water is comfortable - not hot not cold. The rooms are large and clean. My only complaint is that the food is just nothing to write home about. Wish they had better restaurants.

Its obvious from reading some of these reviews, people are trying to get a free night's stay from Key Lime Cove. I have stayed here MANY times and have never encountered any of these problems that these reviewers are complaining about. My room has always been clean. I've never heard the people in the next room. Water park is staffed... More

This is a fun place to go for a weekend. Here are my tips: 1. It's a hotel first and water park second so if you can stay two nights. Otherwise you won't get a good amount of time at the water park. Check out is at 11 and check in is at 3. So if you only stay one... More

I visited Keylime Cove last year as a Christmas gift. My parents knew I was crazy for water parks, and this was the best choice for swimming during the cold season. First thing I rushed into was the Waterpark, which is actually pretty big. There's a lot of activities, but it can get kinda boring after the 2nd night. The... More

We loved KeyLime Cove!!! It was such a great place to stay and feel like we were in the tropical heat of Florida in January. The water park was great along with the arcade which the kids won some great prizes. We then had ice cream and relaxed in our comfy room.
