favorite thing - child free hot tub, yes!! worst thing - towel availability (went twice and there were no towels), though when we tried again within 20-30 min there were towels. Rooms are nice-sized, lots of drawers (Which is one thing Disney cannot get right!!), nice to have a mini fridge in regular room. Don't expect amazing food or fast... More

Overall wonderful place, kids loved it. Island temptations coffee and confectionary was super slow, hour wait for a donut. Sharkys has no healthy snacks to choose from and there needs to be a worker at the bottom of the stairs for the slides as kids were being turned away because they needed a life jacket. Also, water was cold, kids... More

It's great little park that will do the job. I was in no way ready to drive 3.5+ hours to the dells. Been there done that. My 7 year old liked this place. It can get overrun with rowdy teenagers but you kind of expect that closer to the city I suppose. I would go here again. No issues with... More

Our room was nice with a double sink in the bathroom , free WiFi and 2 queen size beds and very kid friendly. The arcade was nice and the fact that the lifeguards took such care and time with us on the slides.

We have always been traditional in our beliefs that kids should wake up Christmas morning and run to their toys. But this year was different. We decided to spend Christmas Eve/Day at Key Lime Cove.
