My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this indoor waterpark extravaganza. Best feature is the toilet bowl. It is literally a giant Champagne glass type structure That you swirl around on in an innertube, either alone or with a friend, until you are flushed to the bottom. I could do without the gaudy Vegas style arcade. Way overstimulating. Plenty of nearby... More

We have 2 young children under 3. This resort was great if you want to get away & not have to leave your hotel. The variety of restaurants was great from hot dogs to mahi mahi. The breakfast buffet was only $12.95 if you paid by the front desk, with kids 2 & under free! It was delicious and beverages... More

The slides, lazy river, and kids areas are well thought out and fun. What is not well thought out or fun is the capacity. The cove gets overrun on weekends to the point of a rock concert. The bathrooms and changing areas become less and less sanitary as the weekend progresses. Additionally, there are NO rinse off requirements. This means... More

Dear PeterCorvus, Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We are pleased to hear that you found the attractions in the waterpark well thought out and entertaining. Weekends do tend to be busier than week days but we follow capacity levels strictly for the resort and the waterpark.

My family stayed one night during the week - 2 adults and 3 children ages 6, 4, and 6months. We all had a wonderful time. We arrived relatively late in the evening and my husband requested a room upgrade and was able to upgrade our family to a suite for a modest fee. It was a living room and bedroom,... More

My husband and I came to Key Lime Cove with our 7 year old son and had an excellent stay! The waterpark was a hit with our son. There is plenty to do for all ages. There's a small area for toddlers and little kids with a few short slides (which even our 7 year old liked). The wave pool... More

One week ago, I reserved a room. I was emailed an offer today for $50 less per night for the same exact room, same exact date. Called into their "vacation planner" which is nothing more than the reservations line. Put on hold, into voicemail, called back and tried again. Two people told me that in order to take the $50...

Dear befuddled, Thank you for sharing your concerns with us. We sincerely apologize that you experienced trouble booking your reservation with our flash sale. The reason that our reservationists couldn’t apply the discount directly to your original reservation was due to the fact that there were a limited number of reservations available per day through the sale.

Stayed there for one night during the week and my family and I loved it. The room was nice and so were the shops and the service we receive. However, the water park is what made the hotel amazing.

Hotel room was clean, quiet and had very adequate amenities. The Water Park was clean, crowded, but not overly so. It would be nice if they had a deep water pool, too.
