This is the second time we have visited, and again had a great experience. We especially appreciated the key in the wristband, so we didn't have to keep track of keys at the waterpark. Our kids can't get enough of this place, and we will be back.

We spent a recent weekend at KeyLime Cove and had a great experience. From Amanda at the front desk at check in, all the way through check out was a great experience. The rooms were ready on time, clean and spacious with amenities. Our ages were 8 - 61 and there were things to do for all ages. Dinner at... More

Our time there overall was good, but one experience left a bitter taste in my mouth that I will share with friends with children my age. We ordered a lot of food and my 3 year old wanted a cup of water at Diggity Dawgs. The cups meant for water were at the register, but apparently, the restaurant's manager Tara... More

This was our second spring break visit with kids staying in the Mangrove Suite. We like the separate room w/ sliding door so if one person is up before the other they can hang out and watch TV w/o disturbing others. Room rates seem pricey, but your daily waterpark passes are included along with other free daily activities for the... More

The water park is small compared to the indoor water parks in Dells. Kids had fun, but I noticed my 10 year-old son had red upper eyelids after returning from this indoor water park! This never happened to him in the water parks. I believe the water is highly bleached. We will not go to this place in the future.... More

Dear Kevin L, Thank you for sharing your comments on our indoor waterpark, Lost Paradise. We completely understand your concerns regarding the level of chemicals in our water. We can assure you that we actually use the minimum amount of chlorine required by the state of Illinois. Our main purifying source is, in fact, ozone. Our ozone technology destroys 99.9%... More

Booked a last minute room for a quick get-away with one of my sons. Having been at several water parks in the Dells, I didn't have unduly high expectations. We found the property to be well maintained, and our room was ready an hour ahead of the 4 pm check-in. It was clean and comfortable, with good amenities. The food... More

We decided to stay there for spring break with the kids and booked Queen Deluxe Guest Room. It was just a room, not big enough for 5 people . All the food in the resort is well made but it is hard to find any health choices and if you really don't want to feed your kids with tons of... More

Last minute we decided to take kids to a waterpark. Decided to head to Gurnee instead of taking the drive to the Dells. Line for check in was out the front door and waited a good 45 minutes. Surprised that our room was actually ready. Staff was friendly. Room was ok appeared clean but felt like a 1987 time warp.... More

We had a great weekend with our kids. Everybody was very friendly, especially the musician at Crazy Toucan bar on Saturday night. Food, drinks, dancing with kids and listening to favorite Caribbean songs that we requested, all these made us feel like we were in Jamaica.
