After finding an average hotel on Priceline that I intended to book for our trip to Cedar Point, a friend told me about Castaway Bay. I went online and found that with discounted Cedar Point tickets and free parking voucher included it was actually cheaper to stay at Castaway Bay, an indoor waterpark, than a run of the mill hotel...

One of the best indoor water parks. Friendly staff, clean rooms and lots to do. Close to Cedar Point and a great place when the weather is bad. Activities for parents and children. The park is tropical themed with casual everything.

Had a great time. Everything was above par. We visited with our 2 year old granddaughter and she loved the visits with Snoopy. It was awesome as Snoopy would make numerous appearances throughout the day. Room was clean and comfortable. Waterpark was a blast. Only concern I had was the dead bugs in some of the light fixtures in some... More

Service and location was great! The waterpark and water roller coaster were awesome! Breakfast buffet was yummy and loved all the choices! Getting into Cedar Point an hour early was a plus! Package contained all we were looking for in a vacation: early entry into Cedar Point, bunk beds for the kids, an indoor waterpark, and breakfast buffet. The kids... More

We come to Castaway Bay each year from CA and it is ALWAYS a 5 star experience. This past year 2014 I accidentally booked the wrong room. I was upset upon walking into the room and realizing it was not what we usually have each year. I called the front desk and explained that I booked the wrong room and... More

Nothing like staying at a page that's good for both parents & kids! Indoor & outdoor water slides & pools, even a little hot tub! Great entertainment for the kids, awesome attentive lifeguard staff, & love the tropical atmosphere. All within your hotel! & so close to the theme park with ticket packages!

The room smelled awful. The towels were yellowish. It is over priced if compared to the cleanliness. but I liked that it had indoor water park and a place outside to get some tan. The place outside was a bit small and over crowded. The breakfast was average. The pancakes looked low quality. But overall it was not bad.

My family came from Cuba for the Castaway Bay experience and it was awesome. The staff was friendly and welcoming. We love the Game room was great. We have visited the other Water Parks, but we rated this one the best!!! Thank you for a great vavcation spot at your resort!

The waterpark is fun and the location is good, but I wouldn't stay here again. The place is too dirty. The rooms are in decent shape, but dusty and our balcony was overrun with spiders and a wasp, so we could not even open the door. The boardwalk area is gross and not well taken care of. The outside pool... More

Our room was awesome! We had a King bed and 2 bunks. If the bunks were too hard, the kids didn't seem to notice. Tons of space - our teenager even made himself a "mancave" in the walk-in closet! Room was spic n span, bathtub looked brand new. We stayed two nights, housekeeping was excellent. No complaints at all! Yes,... More
