I booked this room on Groupon. We have taken our kids to may of the water parks in the Sandusky area and decided to give Maui a try. After booking the room I read through some of the reviews and took them with a grain of salt. Sadly, all the bad reviews were correct. The water park was fun but... More

Pretty lame hotel. Check-in was an hour plus task. Not enough parking for hotel guests. Not one of the ice machines worked on four floors, had to go to another wing of the hotel to get ice. (they were aware none of the machines worked) This hotel is grossly under staffed. Much of the water park was closed because they... More

Not a very big water park, old equipment, rust in many places inside the park, not all the slides were open, we had to wait a long time for intertubes. Overpriced breakfast, and a long line to check in. The water park should have opened at 10:00AM during spring break! The hotel was full and there were lots of unhappy... More

Maui Sands is one of the smaller indoor water parks in Sandusky, however with the groupon deal you can't beat the price. It's the perfect day trip to keep kids occupied and having fun while you relax or play on the slides with the kids. We've taken 18 months through 11 years old and they all have a blast.

We just got back from this hotel/waterpark. I took 2 10 year old boys, my 4 year old, and me. We had a GREAT time! This is an older property so if you are a clean/neat freak then you might want to go elsewhere. Yes it needs a good vacuuming and there is chipping paint here and there and the... More

Our friends and family made a spring break overnight trip to Maui Sands. Everyone had a great time. Our room was very clean and extremely quiet. We purchased the King bed room with double bunk beds. Kids ages are 4,6,and 6 and 3 adults. The waterpark was perfect for children around that age and all the life guards are very... More

Dear Tana C: We are glad everyone in your group had a great time. The waterpark is ideal for young families. It has a variety of attractions that parents and children can enjoy together. The rooms with the bunk beds are very popular with our guests, Parents enjoy the privacy, while children like the bunk beds and their own TV.... More

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! We thought this would be a nice alternative to Kalahari since groupon had a deal for staying here, but what a mistake! This place is a dump! We got a King Deluxe room with the bunk bed hut. The beds are hard as rocks, there was black mold in the shower, dirty towels on the floor,... More

All of our rooms should be cleaned and inspected before being assigned to a guest. We want all of our guests to have clean and comfortable accommodations. Your visit was not an accurate depiction...

I consider our family to be indoor water park connoisseurs. We have stayed at all 4 indoor water parks in the Sandusky area. Maui Sands is the newest resort on the block and the least expensive option. That said, the resort is comprised of older hotels that have been connected when the water park was built. The configuration of the... More

Dear TravelDad: Thank you for your very detailed review of your visit to the waterpark. We appreciate your observations. Our goal is to provide our guests a safe day of fun in the waterpark. On busy days, there can be a delay in obtaining a tube. Compounding the problem is that some of our guests will take the tube with... More

So I have a 17 month old and 3 years old and it's perfect for those ages. However, most of the fun requires inner Tubes and there was a HUGE shortage of that. We waited at the lazy river twice for 20 mins each time and still never got an inner tube. There isn't nearly enough chairs/tables and the water... More

I stayed with my fiancé and her child over this past weekend (we came on the 27th of March). We were looking for a little simple get away for the little one, and Kalahari is waaay too expensive. We went to Great Wolf in December, so we thought we'd try Maui. As soon as we arrived, we saw the line... More
