The food is mediocre and overprices, it is loud and obnoxious, it is expensive no matter what deal you get- but it is well worth it for the amount of enjoyment my kids get here. They are 5 and 7 and we first stayed here when they were 2 and 4. The waterpark is big enough for them but small... More

My son and I enjoyed the room, the water park, the arcade...just everything. Thank you, Key Lime for the fun vacation! The facilities were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The shuttle to Great America was awesome and the driver was very friendly and shared useful tips!

You never have to leave but if you want to the shuttle service will take care of it. The waterpark hours were nice & long so you felt like you were not rushed. We enjoyed several meals & snacks with the many restaurant options they had to offer. Great atmosphere, clean & friendly. We would stay again!

Nice rooms, lots of fun, great value. Kids enjoyed themselves. Everything was clean & modern. There were food options for everyone and prices were reasonable. Refrigerators in the rooms, microwaves on each floor.

Although my only means for comparison is the CA outdoor water park, Raging Waters, I found Key Lime Cove to be simply average. The water park area seemed very compact, but maybe all indoor parks are like that. There is no traditional pool to swim in. The other key activity is the arcade which drains money from a parent's pocket... More

Very nice resort,rooms were beautiful. Water park is small and for young kids mostly.The noise level was very bad and the chlorine was too high,and this was a slow day. I had pizza right outside of the water park area and in that short time I watched 6 people slip and fall. The floor just past the water area is... More

Everything at Key Lime Cove was great. All of the staff are very helpful and have a smile on their faces. The rooms are very clean. The prices for food and drinks is good. They definitely make it kid friendly.

With the exception of my hubby losing his glasses on the waterslide and being told by a teen lifeguard, "Maybe they'll shoe up later." We had a great time. A little pricey but the kids enjoyed it. Plenty of restaurants nearby so you don't have to eat the pricey resort food.

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
