Having been to both Kalahari resorts in the Dells and Sandusky during Labor Day weekend for the last 2 years, I must say that the Sandusky resort is better. Rooms were cleaner, staff at the whole resort were extremely helpful and pleasant. Lifeguards really take their job seriously. A big plus at this location is the Jr. Zookeeper program. It... More

Stayed in the combination suite and we were so disappointed in the room. Especially for what we paid! So many problems, cracked microwave door, burnt counter top, and employees that act as if they don't care. Next time I want to come to this water park definitely stay at the new Hampton inn down the street, its much cleaner and... More

Stayed in an entertainment villa during a family vacation that included 8 adults and 3 children. The house was wonderful! Plenty of space for everyone to spread out and lots of extras, like a hot tub, furnished patio and sand volleyball in the back yard. It was a little pricey, but it was worth it for having a such a...

Secondly, there buffet was not that good, I feel I could've... More

We visited the resort for the holiday weekend. The room was exceptionally clean and the supervision team for guest services and room service was extremely attentive. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the resort for your family getaway. Thank you Tammy and Alesia for making our stay a pleasant experience!

After hearing for years from our children that we were the only ones who have never been to Kalahari, we went for one night at the end of summer. I had checked on prices a few weeks prior but had not booked. When I went to actually book the room, they were filling up and so had jacked up the... More

My husband our 10 year old son, 4 year old daughter, my mother and I stayed 5 days/4 nights. We had so much fun! For it being a family resort that accommodates a lot of children I was surprised how well kept the property was. Our room was neat and clean, We had everything we needed. The whole property was...

The resort looked really nice on the outside but when I got inside the place was nasty, lines were way too long. The floor was very rough and hurt my feet. One of the lifeguards were very rude to me. I've been to great wolf lodge and never had any of these problems. Stayed less than an hour for 120... More
