4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Recently spent 2 nights here for a conference, but had some time to check out the resort. Lots and lots of options for kids of all ages, and having the indoor and outdoor areas during the summer is really nice. The resort is a little pricey, but the variety of foods, bars and activities makes up for it. Aside from... More

On our most recent stay, we booked a Suite. Some might consider it pricey, but in this case you definitely get a great value for the investment. You get a very nice spacious master bedroom with flat screen tv and closet in room. Then you get a lovely living room with fireplace, walk out balcony, another flat screen tv and... More

Pros: -The indoor Water Park was great entertainment for kids (5yrs and 9 mo) and adults alike! The water and surrounding area was clean, the water... More

It was very nice to get away for the day but one night was a little costly though!. I did notice when I looked it up when we got home that the more days you stay the cheaper it is. The food was a little expensive would be nice to get a discount if you stay in the hotel. It... More

We came here for our girls to enjoy their hard-earned cookie money. It is an expensive adventure, but really nice. The girls and moms alike had a great time. Bad thing is we brought food to make for lunch; however, we have to be out of the room by 11 and can't get a late check-out. I wish there was... More

I am so thrilled to hear that you all worked so hard and received a well deserved trip to Kalahari Resort for selling Girl Scout cookies. The Waterpark is definitely one of the best rewards I can think of. I am sorry to hear about the lunch situation. Everyone is required to follow the same rules and I apologize if... More

We stayed for 4 days/3 nights as the anchor point for a Cleveland/Put-In-Bay/Cedar Point family vacation with our 6 year old son. Loved the fact the waterpark was open until 10 giving us plenty of time to swim even after check-in. Room was their most basic ( 2 queen beds), but was clean and made up nicely each day. Only...
