The front desk went above and beyond my expectations. When I wanted to stay another night for a deal that I had for one night only, they kindly allowed us to stay for two nights at the same cost. The entire staff was friendly. The room was large, clean, and comfortable. When we had an issue with our restroom someone... More

I purchased a Living Social voucher for $159 for a one night stay in a 2bd 2bth suite. Definitely the way to go with children! We had a blast and will certainly plan another trip soon! The on-site dining is great. We had a little maintenance issue with the thermostat and a leaky sink that was promptly addressed.

The Kalahari Sandusky is an awesome place to stay with so many amenities located throughout the complex as well as close by in Sandusky. The wide choice of rooms to fit your occasional is why we only stay here during our vacation travels!

We wished there were more hours in the weekend so we could enjoy the resort more. It was a great trip for three generations! We had a family suite with a patio, enjoyed by all. The waterpark was awesome!

We visited Kalahari in the first week of September. We go back annually since this is my daughters favorite place. We enjoy every visit, however this one was average. We got a room all the way the other side of the park, and when we entered the building a sewer like smell hit me in the face. On the 4th... More

I will be 63 in about a week & am very much out of shape. So saying that, you will understand that... More

We do have scooters that are available for rent during your stay, I deeply apologize if you were unaware of that. Having had the scooter may have made it easier... More

We brought our boys the first year this resort opened and loved it. My personal favorite. 9 years later and everything is like it was when it first opened. We now have 2 young grandchildren to spoil. Our 1st floor suite was beautifully decorated to the theme of the park, clean, roomy and very comfortable. Housekeeping does a great job.... More

This place and every restaurant and vendor was amazing. The cost was a bit up there but definitely worth every penny.
