Was a little worried after reading negative reviews, but we had a great stay! Visited 10/18/14, stayed in the O'Hana Suite, very clean, nice room, REALLY comfortable bed! Great value for Groupon price! Plenty of lifeguards at water park, kids really had a great time! Also, bought pizza there, decent; drinks at bar were pretty strong; didn't try the breakfast... More

We've stayed in Indianapolis' Caribbean Cove and did their water park before. This place is very similar. Six of us are in a room with a queen size bed and two bunk beds which will easily sleep all five of us. The water park is sort of small but has two very nice water slides. The guys and gal running...

Used the Groupon deal. For the affordable price I had realistic expectations of accommodations. If u want a 5 star hotel you will have to pay for it. My kids love the water park. I recommend for a quick trip on a budget.

I stayed at Maui Sands on October 11, 2014. The old part of the hotel is very, very dirty. The new part is better. If you want to stay here only book the King bed with bunk beds. I would not recommend. I did change rooms, little better, however I would not stay here again. No towels in the water... More

Reserved two rooms for October 10, 2014 - rooms were spotless clean, all staff were friendly, personable, especially Waterpark staff - made the experience even more fun for my grandchildren by interacting with them. Stayed at Kalahari a few weeks ago - just the opposite - staff were cold, borderline rude. No comparison - Maui Sands made great memories for... More

We planned a last minute wknd to Sandusky to go to Cedar Point. As the wknd got closer, the weather report was turning against us. We had already told our kids we'd be going on a wknd vacation so we decided to look into various hotels in the area that had pools. Before we chose one I received an email... More

I chose this hotel/waterpark for the groupon deal. We were celebrating our 5 yr anniversary, and with a toddler, we wanted to make sure he had fun. I read this water park was better for younger kids, and I have been to kalahari but wanted to try to stay cheaper. WAS NOT WORTH THE HASSLE. I am waiting on groupon... More

This was a mini-honeymoon for my husband and I since we met at Cedar Point. I was really just looking for a hotel that had a whirlpool tub, and I didn't feel comfortable with other hotels in the area because there were no pictures available (and staying at Cedar Point is too pricey). I cannot comment on the waterpark because... More
