I must say this was one of the better indoor waterparks that I have stayed at. So much to do on site. The waterpark in itself was very clean and had something for all ages. LOVED that the whirlpool was only for adults and it wasn't over crowded with little kids. There was plenty on site to eat and do... More

My oldest child had been asking to visit Key Lime Cove, so when I saw a Groupon, I thought this would be a good opportunity to try it. I then read reviews and was second guessing whether or not we would enjoy this trip. We had a great time! We checked in the hotel in the early afternoon and went... More

This is my second time staying here. After the first time, years ago, I thought I would never come back. It was horrible. But after getting a Groupon, I decided to try once more. It's very clean, the staff was mostly nice. And it seemed to be better run this time. I would possibly come back again. My only issue... More

Stayed with my 8 yr old and fiance. My son's mouth hit the ground when he seen indoor waterpark. Let me add that we just left 6 Flags minutes before this reaction. Ate one meal on site and was good and not to expensive. Arcade very nice. Hotel room very comfortable. Price overall not bad. We will be returning for... More

I agree that this might not be the waterpark for older kids... but my 4 year old can't stop talking about it. We had a great time and the waterpark was in great condition. We went during the week and there were hardly any lines at all.

Captain Dave's suite is a great getaway family experience - accommodations are like a home away from home. A great balcony for morning coffee and evening appetizers - and plenty of living space for family activities.

Considering we have always been a Dells family, after our first trip to Key Lime Cove, we probably won't return to the dells. The hotel is very clean and well kept, staff was extremely friendly and the water park was very nice as well! A bit pricey if you eat on site and do the extras, but still considerably less... More

The experience was awesome my kids loved it and I'm really looking forward to going back with more family! There was only one place that I felt a little uncomfortable which was the locker room They were very dirty. The showers had hair everywhere the drains were clogged, the mirrors were dirty and towels on the floor!
