We took my 4 year old twin daughters, and my 5 year old Niece. The girls had sooo much fun! Our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. (We were in the Flamingo Suite) There was so much for the girls to do at the waterpark! They had a blast going down 4 different sized water slides that were all perfect... More

Ecellent service,employees were friendly and given good directions to get somewhere at the resort. I would recommend my friends to the waterpark for their family. And the resort is very affordable to stay overnight.

We had a great stay overall. THE way to do it is to purchase the breakfast buffet option-just make sure that you get down there between 8 and 9 or you will stand in line waiting. The Bayview suite that we had for two adults and 4 children was great. The waterpark is fun for every age and much to... More

We decided to visit castaway because of the price. Our 7 year old son had never been to a waterpark before and I didn't want to spend $60 a person to find out he didn't like it. We thought there would be plenty for our 7 month old daughter to do as well. I called to make sure she would... More

Just wanted to share some positives about this hotel as I saw some negative reviews. We have two young girls, 2 and 4 years old and this hotel was absolutely perfect for them!! We loved the waterpark! It was the perfect size as Kalarhari is way too big for us at this stage. Pool water was the perfect temperature, water... More

Just recently visited the park over the weekend. Staff was friendly. The room was nice but the bed was hard as a rock. Some of my kids slept on the floor. I don't recommend the buffet breakfast. Should of listened to the other reviews. It was $14 a person and the food was not the best in the world. The... More

Rooms are small. Waterpark is small. For the price you pay its not worth it. I ordered coffee at one of the restaurants and had to wait 15 minutes while they made everyone elses that came after me. At the same restaurant the guy that was serving people wiped his nose with his hand then handled the food without gloves... More

Stayed here on a Sunday evening with my three boys ages 6, 11 and 14. Overall, this is a budget friendly option in comparison to the surrounding hotel/indoor water parks. Got a great "blog" rate which included water park admission, hotel room and breakfast for around $150. One of the things I like about this resort is that you are... More

My family stayed for a cheerleading competition and it was 295.00 for one night (use code BLOG) with Buffett breakfast. Breakfast was just ok. Eggs tasted really weird. Beds are horrible, springs were in our backs all night, blankets scratchy. Someone stole my sons shoes at pool. Kids LOVED the water park so I guess it was worth it. Def... More

The tarpon suite was great! Water park was clean and has a lot of things for the kids to do . Very friendly staff. My kids loved the breakfast buffet and really enjoyed meeting and having pictures taken with the Peanuts Characters!
