It was my husbands 36th birthday and I surprised him with a one night stay in kalahari. We drove from Pennsylvania. My only complaint is that I didn't book a longer stay. From the moment we pulled in, we felt welcomed. The older bell man was so nice and showed me around the restaurants and took me to the check... More

We loved this resort! Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and excellent service. The food was great, and the value was good too. Lots of amenities, the waterpark was fantastic, clean, fun, lots of staff around. I would definitely visit again, this has to be one of the best hotel/resort experiences I've had.

My wife and I spent the weekend at Kalahari recently. We were anticipating substantial crowds for a Saturday in November. There was a conference of some sort of teen/pre-teen sport. The common areas were incredibly busy and active, but, I having not been there before, I cannot compare it to anything. The actual waterpark was not overly busy. There were... More

My daughter's and daughters boyfriend treated me to Kalahari for my Fifty-first birthday. Hearing great reviews, we were very excited. We had an awesome time. I wore my birthday pin all weekend. I was pleasantly surprise with all the very kind birthday greetings from the staff and hotel guests. We will be back!

I stayed here for a work conference. If you don't have kids this is not the place for you. If you have kids, this seems like a fun place to be. Pros: large spaces & lots to do. Cons: food is very expensive, floors were dirty & hotel room walls are paper thin. I probably would not stay here again... More

This resort was fantastic! We stayed for 2 nights during a cheerleading competition. The front desk staff were quick, efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast buffet was well worth the money with a large variety of fresh fruit along with the classics and biscuits with gravy. The water park was clean. Even though the hotel was at 100% capacity this... More

I recently spent 5 nights at Kalahari at a conference and what superb conferencing facilities they have. Great rooms and great break out areas BUT.......how strange to have a waterpark and associated stuff in the same location. Some might say novelty but I thought it was just odd. Seeing people wandering around in swimsuits as we were heading to the... More

Hi Steve! We are thrilled to hear you say we have a superb conference facility. I'm disappointed you found the combination of a waterpark & conference center strange. Many of our convention guests truly appreciate the mix of business & pleasure, infact some of our conventions have seen a 20% increase in attendance due to the fact that attendees can... More

We stayed 5 days in a lodge suite. The room was beautiful and we are a small (3 person) family so the accommodations were more than enough. The kalahari has thd most comfortable pull out couches around! No bar in the middle of your back all night. We got the lodge for the full kitchen and that paid off. Walmart... More

Had a great time with my wife and 2 kids - aged 14 and 20. Great slides, wave pool etc. Was busy but .... what can you do? We did not eat there; it seemed a bit pricey and we were eager to try restaurants we don't have in Canada. Lots of variety within a 5 minute drive.

We went here with the school so it was a weekday which made it really great because it wasn't crowded at all and we didn't have to wait in long lines. Rooms and public areas were clean. I was very happy that I was able to bring some snacks into the park - that is new - last time they... More
