We were on our way back from the Finger Lakes and stopped over in Sandusky to do the water park and the rides of Cedar Point. The whole package was about $328 including the overnight stay, which is what you pay at Great Wolf just for the overnight, so we thought it was a good deal and the grandkids ages... More

We enjoyed our stay at Castaway Bay. It was clean and the staff was very nice. The accommodations worked for us. We had 4 teenagers and the two bunk beds worked nicely. The breakfast was not very good. The food was the same everyday. The water park is geared for kids so the teenagers had fun but we did not... More

We bought the 2 day ride and slide deal and had 3 days of fun. We arrived on a Tuesday morning, our room was ready! YAY! Had a great day at Cedar Point, relaxed the 2nd day at the resort and spent the last day at the CP water park and the ride park. We relaxed and regrouped. A great... More

Just had a wonderful vacation at Cedar Point with only one sour note and that was Castaway Bay. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is really nice with some wonderful facilities, but first of all, check in isn't easy because there's always a crowd at the very small Reception Desk. There were only two young people working there, neither of... More

Our stay was great. It was a lot smaller than Kalahari but the size was perfect cause it was easier to find our wandering teenagers. Was reasonably clean and very friendly staff. Breakfast buffet was great, and loved that it was available as package and with easy payment plan.

Our stay was great! Loads of rides for all ages. Very comfortable temp inside the facility. Very clean and sanitary. The rooms accomodated us perfectly. The beds were nice and comfortable. The drive to Cedar Pointe was less than a half mile. Castaway Bay made the entry into Cedar Pointe convenient.

Overall stay for us was great! Friendly staff, great location, good food selection, and great indoor waterpark! Rooms were nice and clean with the right sleep count that we were told. Beds were comfortable.

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.
