Clean and comfortable rooms, food was excellent but pricy. Beautiful facility. Water park was the best I have ever seen. Lots of fun for all ages. Little ones never run out of things to do. Multi cultural experience.

Stayed for two nights midweek in July. The hotel was not terribly crowded, there were plenty of spare life jackets (though we brought our own) and everything in the room was clean. Lineups for the big slides were short in the morning. Food was very good onsite, and cost just a little more but the convenience and quality made it... More

This place is awesome! Great prices for packages, clean rooms, amazing food and three days of pure fun! We come at least once a year. The only thing I HATE is the Tigers kept in the small enclosures and prodded in order to look cute for pictures. I ask what happens to them once they get big and each person... More

It was the first time for my husband and I getting to go to Kalahari! My family talks about it all the time, even our daughter has gone with them. Since we finally had some magical time off together, we all went. We were able to book a combo room with the on-line special, and even though I wasn't able... More

3rd time for our family of 4 (2 adults,2 kids ages 12 & 9). Our first summer visit and it has been such a fun time. We stayed 3 nights on a package deal (can't remember its name) that gave 40% for past guests and included outdoor adventure park. We stayed in a hut room in the newer Sands section.... More

We came to Kalahari in Sandusky on Friday. We got here at 11:30, when we were told check-in wasn't until 12. We pull up front and a very nice bellman helped unload our car. He then waiting with our stuff while we registered. Thankfully our room was ready. The bellman then came up to our room with us to unload... More

We had an absolute amazing time. We stayed from July 12th-14th. The hotel was amazingly clean, the waterpark was fun for my daughter and we had breakfast at the Buffet both mornings, great food, and we ate at the Reserve one night for dinner and that was spectacular as well. All of the staff members that we encoutered were very... More

This place is fun! fun! fun! They let you use the water park starting at noon on the day of your arrival and check in isn't until 4. You can pre-register when you arrive and they will text you when your room is ready. You can also stay until 3 on the day you check out. How great is that?... More

The resort was very busy, but we were able to check in early and start enjoying our stay right away. Staff very helpful and the property was well maintained. There is something for everyone. We live close by the property (within a 1/2 hour) suggest a three night stay to see other attractions in the area (ie; cedar point, islands)... More
