My husband and three older kids took a trip there the past week. The indoor water park was fun and kept us entertained for the day while the room was nothing great. The mattresses were terrible and I honestly thought that sleeping on the floor would be more comfortable. My kids had two sets of bunk beds in their room... More

We stopped here because we were going to Cedar Point Amusement Park. The location was good. The check in was easy. We didn't use the water park but it looked nice. The rooms were large. Only negative would be the slow elevators.

We have never had a problem when staying at Castaway Bay and this trip was no exception. We had a great time, the room was nice, we had a balcony, which was very nice. But skip the breakfast at Mango Mike's. It is not worth the money. It is a very tiny buffet for $12.96 per adult and the food... More

We went with 5 kids and they all had a blast. My 4 year old is constantly asking me when we can go back. It's not super huge, but still a great, fun place. The jacuzzi is awesome and the breakfast buffet is pretty good.and very close to cedar point.

We purchased a room through Expedia at a discounted rate of $149.00 per night, it did include the water park for all 4 of us, but I still felt this price was a bit high for this level accommodation. Had we booked through the hotel directly it would have been $209.00, this would be way more than I would be... More

My family and I really enjoyed ourselves at the hotel. We loved the balcony, which was fenced in and "mosquito proof". It was great sitting on it and enjoying the fireworks. I enjoyed the fact that it was so close to Cedar Point and by staying here we got free parking passes. I would recommend this hotel!

We loved our stay at Castaway Bay. We checked in on July 4th. We really enjoyed the waterpark and our room had a beautiful view of the little bay. We were able to see Cedar Points fireworks from the patio on our room. We were able to get into Cedar Point an hour early the next day which was great... More

We stayed in a Tarpon suite, the suite was pretty nice. Having the bunk beds for the kids in a separate living space was very nice and gave us the extra space we needed as a family of 5. We did have a couple issues with housekeeping - they kept forgetting to bring towels and replenish the coffee for the... More
