The water park is fun for the whole family but the restaurant mango mikes is expensive the food is awful and the service is even worse. Our waitress stood and talked over our food during the majority of our meal. The food was awful and they called it a buffet but it only had about 5 different food options. This... More

Stayed here with family for a week. the convenience of a water park in the hotel was priceless. restaurants right near by, in house ice cream shop comfortable rooms and close to Cedar Point for the adventurous. We loved it and highly reccomend it here.

We ended our Spring Break this year with a stop @ Castaway Bay. Wonderful! Clean!! Great staff!!! We usually stay @ Kalahari but this was every bit as wonderful and much cheaper!!!! A truly great stay!

We loved it here. It was our first overnight trip. We came out once before to enjoy the waterpark for a day. What a nice time and the waterpark is clean and the lifeguards are all so attentive. We had very good service from everyone and we did a lot. We ate there, swam, shopped and enjoyed our room at... More

We chose Castaway Bay by price honestly. When we decided to take our boys on a two day trip to a indoor water park, we were in sticker shock at the prices. Castaway Bay was $200.00 cheaper for the overall stay then the other well known choices in the Sandusky area. At first we were nervous about some of the... More

I brought my family to castaway bay to stay for 4 nights. I chose this location over the rest due to it being much cheaper then Kalahari or great wolf lodge. I am on day 3 of our 5 days here and I regret not spending the extra money and booking another location. The service here in the hotel and... More

This property is in disrepair. The overall rating would be average. The employees in general are not very motivated. In fact many are very odd, one told me she was a vampire. Another said he HATED mondays....Stick with Kalihari...

We stayed in a standard room overnight Friday and Saturday. The room was basic, but did have a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. The room was subtly tropical in theme and clean. The waterpark was smaller than those at Great Wolf and Kalahari, but still had alot to do. My 10 year daughter enjoyed the fact that it was not... More

Walking into the hotel to register I was not impressed. 30 minute wait to be told you can't check into till 4. If staying 1 night should be able to check in by 2. Nothing for adults. No SPA which was really disappointing. the only restaurant theirs the other one was closed down. The Starbucks you couldn't use your card,... More
