I got a deal on groupon for 6 people with 2 bunk beds and a king bed(sliding door separates the king bed from rest of room)we have been here before so I knew what to expect. My daughter brought 3 friends along for a birthday trip (10 yrs old) they all had a blast. Pros:They loved the lazy river, bowl... More

Someone wrote that Walmart comment in their review, and it sums the hotel up. Things in room are broken and very poorly maintained...but if your looking for a wallet friendly water park, this is it. No soap and shampoo or conditioner in shower dispensers, several area of water park, including hot tub, *temporarily* shut down. 1 bar of soap. Adult... More

Ok so after reading the reviews on this place I was a little scared to stay here, but every thing went fine. The hotel does need a little paint and sanding to retouch things that are outdated. But that was the worst I could find. My youngest daughter is special needs and in a wheelchair and my oldest is 7.... More

Found this hotel on Groupon and then I checked out the other area water parks. Kalahari was going to be almost $1000 dollars for our party for 2 days and Great Wolf was almost $700 for the same length of time so with 2 small kids and 4 adults, Maui Sands fit the bill. It wasn't the most spectacular place,... More

I recently booked a stay for my family. The outside appearance is terrible, also the lack of parking. The inside was ok however the staff was inexperienced. There were not enough staff members. The water park was very cold and not well staffed either. The lifeguards were made to work longer shifts because there were not enough to cover. (illegal)... More

We arrived in April and besides the elevators being frigid, the whole park was nice and warm and the water was warm (not super warm but definitely fine). The rooms, like everyone said, and the entire park is a little run down, but was fine for us (especially with a groupon). Stayed in the Ohana suite with the 4 bunk... More

My husband and I both agreed that if we would have been here as our first ever experience then we might not have been disappointed. We thought the air was chilly and even the kids complained the water was cold. We never saw a worker checking water temps or oh levels like other places so I am not sure if... More

First of, the front desk staff was super helpful and so welcoming, especially Angie! Our room was perfect except for the lack of towels...we only had 2. Not a big deal. I'm sure if I called I would have gotten more. The lines in the park were very short, especially for a Friday night/Saturday morning. I was a little bummed... More

We went to this waterpark about 2 weeks ago and we had the worse experience. Dirty sheets, toilet broken and horrible customer service. We called 4 times to get things resolved and never received clean sheets and the toilet never got fixed, so we had to leave the room each time any of my family members had to use the... More

After reading the bad reviews, I was worried. We had already booked on groupon. Room was clean and comfortable. Waterpark was busy, but the lines were not unbearable. Kids had a blast. Will definitely visit again. Would have given 5 stars if the hot tubs were open!
