Wonder place for my grandchildren ranging in age from 1 to 5. Staff was very helpful. My original reservation was for 2 rooms and in checking in they only had one but they were able to get us the second room.

The rooms are pretty outdated and noisy. The hallway to the waterpark was freezing! Really need to rethink the front door and the hall to the waterpark... Overall it was a great time though. The waterpark was perfect for my toddler!

My family and I visited Grand Harbor as a mini winter getaway and we loved every minute of it. The rooms were spacious and plentiful. The water park was admittedly a bit smaller than we had envisioned, but we quickly found that it had much to offer. Our kids had a blast! I would totally recommend this for anyone looking... More

I have no idea why it is so difficult for a water park of this size to have good ventilation and lighting?? My eyes sting and my nose hurts as soon as I leave the pool area. Seating around the pool consists of flimsy plastic outdoor chairs. As for the hotel rooms, they were perfectly fine. I also thought Tony... More

The rooms are very clean, quiet and comfortable. The Waterpark is a lot of fun and has things for every age! Tony Romas is one of our favorite restaurant And the concession stand in the water park is great for food also.

I read multiple bad reviews upon booking but decided to see for myself how this place was. And I seriously have no real major complaint. Our kids are 2,5,7,9. And it was perfect for them! The temperature of the water and of the room was set comfortably. The room was clean, it's wasn't anything fancy, but what exactly do you... More

The resort is enormous, but, welcoming. The staff is delightful and helpful. The room was immaculate, with a fabulous view of the Mississippi River. It's also located conveniently amongst several attractions.

We celebrated our son's 17 birthday. It was an amazing weekend. My son will never forget this birthday. Water park was really for the younger ones, but my kids still had a blast. Our view of Dubuque and the Mississippi was spectacular.
