We were a little worried about going after hearing the waterpark was geared only toward big kids. Our kids are two and five. They had a blast. True there was a bunch they couldn't do but they never realized they were missing anything. We played a ton in the arcade too. The rooms were very comfortable and the fireplace was... More

We have been to several waterparks in Michigan. They are fun and close. We resisted Kalahari for years because of the cost and finally jumped in and booked a 4 day visit. WOW! Worth every penny and wish we would have visited earlier. The staff was excellent. The park had attractions from infant to adult. This waterpark kept two 15... More

This is a great place to come with the whole family which we have done a few times. This time us girls decided to do a night away. We enjoyed the hot tub and swim up bar. This is such a wonderful place to go as a family or just to get away. Thanks for a great night away we... More

The energy and fun at Kalahari is wonderful. It is a great winter getaway, especially when it is frigid and snowy outside. The rooms are oversized and ample for a family of 4 (or more if the kids are small and will share a pull-out). Kalahari offers very enticing specials all year round, so plan early and shop for a...

We were delighted to stay at this resort. Our room was extraordinary, the staff is very friendly, and the food is very good. Unfortunately Kalahari is undergoing major renovations which made navigating the entrance and paths to the restaurants difficult. Our meal was disrupted repeatedly by loud banging and drilling. No amount of music could cover it. For that, I... More

I went to this resort for a cheerleading competition that was hosted there and it was awesome. I had so much fun. The staff were very friendly and I enjoyed the stay there. The water park was awesome even though I was not a slide person. The lazy rice was fun and huge. The rooms were a nice size.

Wondeful place to stay! Everything you need is right there. Never really had to leave to resort for anything. Wonderful staff. Very friendly. I don't recommend moving your vehicle if you want a decent parking spot.

A bit pricey but very nice resort. Room was plenty large enough for 4 adults in the basic room. Be ready to walk if you get put in the sands resort side of facility. It's quite a walk to get to the waterpark. Admission includes waterpark and stay but be prepared to spend money on food and drinks. Went on... More

My family loves going to Kalahari at least once a year, but we normally face some sort of problem. I would reccommend never going after a cheerleader or gymnsatics team has gone. They trash the rooms so bad and are very loud if you happen to have a room near theirs. We saw one poor made have to clean a... More
