We had two adjoining rooms and the windows were dirty, so was the furniture and the bedding skirts were disgusting. The waterpark is neglected! Not anything like the website showed. Also the check in staff were not at all helpful. I would not recommend this hotel.

The water park is small and is excellent for small children. The room was clean and in good condition. The neighboring museums were great and added more interesting things to do on this trip. My family and I have visited this resort and waterpark several times in the past and have enjoyed it every time. One negative this time was... More

Our three grandson's loved the water park. Once they were in the park they did not want to leave. Does not have a swimming pool but that was not a problem. Deepest part was four feet. Three different water slides which they loved and also able to play water basketball. Lots of live guards on duty. Eating was a problem,... More

confusion among staff regarding some amenities on the package. Had to do my own leg work to find out where to go and when. Otherwise rooms were very nice. Tony Romas was good food and right in the hotel.

Room was great. Waterpark...slide and lazy river tubes almost flat. Bottom of pools and lazy river really dirty. Service at Tony Romas SLOW and rude. We waited 20 minutes from the time we were seated until someone came to our table to take our drink order.

We stayed two nights and found our accommodations good. The only thing I'd say could be improved was the mattress and sofa bed. Both could use replacing - maybe the pillows too. The room is a good size as is the bathroom. We had a river view and it's quite impressive. We were on the top floor. We'd go back.... More

We used to go a lot. It WAS a great fast place to go for a couple days. However, the waterpark staff are RUDE, LAZY, the rooms are not well taken care of, I took many pictures of the room, I felt like I was in a motel. I wont be back.

The room was clean but did not care for the bathroom layout. There was not vanity to put anything on to get ready in the bathroom by the mirror. The plug in was on the left side which made it really difficult to work with curling iron. It would be have been great for a left handed person. When I... More

The hotel and water park are very nice. Our grandchildren loved the arcade too. I only wish there was a separate pool for those who wish to swim rather than just play. The hot tub is great but a regular pool would be a nice addition. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. Not a fan of the coffee makers... More

Overall good but shower for handicap was very poor, no curtain- who ever decided to have the shower-head point to the middle of the room should have to mop the floor after the shower. For what was paid for the room this is not what i expected. At checkout the clerk didn't care.
