This place runs like a well-oiled machine. The staff - in particular the lifeguards - take their work very seriously. They are incredibly attentive to their responsibilities and dedicated to ensuring the safety of all swimmers, making me feel very safe, even with an autistic child.

We decided to try this place, have already been to several water parks with the kids, so we had some preset standards for a good experience. I could list each interaction, but the bottom line is that the teenagers that work here do not give clear directions, and we wasted time looking for what we needed. At one point I... More

I have been here several times in the past year. The first two times, my family and I stayed on the weekends, and the resort was very busy.

Visited during Presidents Weekend and had to book a two day minimum. Also pricey because each guest requires a band for the indoor waterpark. They also only give a room key wrist band to guest over 16 years of age, which means every time a child needs to go to the room you have to go with them because of... More

Took the little kids to this resort in January and had a fun time. The water park is small, but if your kids are small, it is totally sufficient for your needs. The food and drink offerings at the resort were pretty decent and well-priced. The hotel room, however, really left a lot to be desired. They were musty and... More
