The water park was okay, an average smaller park. My real issue was our room and the buffet breakfast. Our room had ants...not a few ants A LOT of them. They did come and spray but then the room smelled and we still had them. The balcony was dirty and needed a good cleaning as well, and the bed and... More

We walked in and we were just in awe and smiles. We went to our room, The Flamingo suite, and the kids yelped Again. This was... More

We have been to all the indoor waterparks in Ohio and we like Castaway Bay the best. It's the only one with a wave pool, the raft ride is great and the hot tub is hot and clean. It is a combination indoor/outdoor hot tub, which is pretty neat. In addition to the waterpark, the hotel is very nice and... More

The family loved it. The room was perfect. Water park was fun and the water was clean. Wish we could of stayed longer. Liked the early entry to cedar point and the parking pass. Will be going back in the future.

Rooms were clean and were as advertised. Water park was great for my 7 and 8 year old daughters, I have seen reviews that says it is not for older than 12 and I would agree that the water park is more for younger children. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was only average. Early... More

We stayed at castaway bay may 19,2014. We are a family of six, the water park area was decent, but the rooms were gross. When we checked in I did a small inspection on the room. But my mistake was leaving our luggage on the floor. After our stay we my we started noticing bite marks on our arms and... More

We were in town for the July 4th weekend and stayed here because all of the other on site Cedar Point hotels were booked. The staff at check-in were very friendly. The room itself is very dated and had a really musty odor. I probably wouldn't stay again though.

The room and the waterpark was very clean and the facility overall seemed well maintained. All amenities were as expected and functional. The balcony was screened and pleasent. The waterpark was fun for the whole family. There were... More

Everything about Castaway Bay was just how we would have wanted it. The room was clean, décor was inviting, and beds were comfortable. The fridge and microwave were a bonus. It had all other amenities we wanted as well. The only thing I didn't love was the water pressure in the shower, but who cares when everything else was just... More

My family of 5 stayed there for 2 nights. We stayed at the tarpon suite that offered a King bed and 2 bunk beds. The king bed was very comfortable and the area with the bunk beds is separated from the king bed. Bunk beds are good enough for adult and adults. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and attentive,... More
