My parents began bringing me to New Braunfels in 1962. We either stayed at Warneckes which got gobbled up by Schlitterbahn or Guissekes/ now Heidelberg (probably not the right spelling). New Braunfels is the most charming German town If you look in the right places, like Naegelins bakery.... you can still see that today. It is an acquired taste and... More

We stayed one night at this resort during their off-season. The suite was very large with two king sized beds. The resort could use some up-dating but we enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would stay there again, maybe during their peak season so we can experience the water park while we are there.

If you love the water and love rides, this is the place to go. Built on the Guadeloupe River this park offers all you want in a water park. Picnic baskets and coolers are welcome. Free parking. If you are vacationing a package that includes lodging at the resort. A great day adventure but two days to enjoy all the... More

Very pleasantly pleased with the loveliness of these accommodations. Husband had an 8am golf tournament at Landa Park Golf Course on Friday (very nice btw), so we drove over the day before and choose to stay at the Schlitterbahn Resort because it was close. Reading the reviews I was a little nervous, but I'm here to tell you, these are... More

Dear mrshlovesjesus, Thank you for your review - such nice detail and info. All of your suggestions, explanations, and descriptions were very on point. The Resort at Schlitterbahn is the place to be when the park is open, but as you point out, when the park is closed it's a great place for R&R. Thank you for sharing your experience,... More

Moderately priced for what you get. Utensils, pots & pans, plates cups...etc. everything you need all at a great price. Plenty near by to do. Heated pool until midnight. Looks newly remodeled on the inside as well. Would do it all over again!

I was very reluctant when reserving here because there was a lot of bad reviews. I am so glad I stayed at Schlitterbahn. We stayed at the Wausser House on 3/28/15, it is off season so we only paid $75.00 for a 2 queen beds room. The room and shower was spotless. Linens were white and clean. Beds were very,... More

Dear Tamara-Chris R, Thank you for your review, I enjoyed reading your comments.

We stayed at one of the River Bend cabins in the off season, which meant the price was extremely reasonable! It was a great little cabin. Although obviously built awhile ago, it has been kept up very well. We had one bedroom, one bathroom (small but functional), living/dining room, and kitchen. Ours was a short visit and we didn't end... More

Dear mandolynn13, Thank you for your review. The fall getaways are so nice in the New Braunfels area, and taking advantage of the great value offered at The Resort at Schlitterbahn caps things off nicely. By Fall the Riverbend Cabin are peaceful and relaxing, and by Summer the scene changes to FUN, ENERGY, and EXCITEMENT! We hope to see you... More

This vacation was not suppose to happen for my family but I'm glad it did because I got to experience something every hotel or resort should have, but before I get to that let me start off by saying the following.

Dear oscar c, Thank you for your review; I enjoyed reading your feedback. It's a well-known fact that Schlitterbahn is the "hottest coolest time" in the summer, but Spring Break is also a great time to come play! Your commentary is very helpful and highlights many great travel tips. We hope to see you in the park this summer! More

Dear lgill05, Thank you for the review, we greatly appreciate the feedback!!! The evening activities are a great way to carry over the fun from the park into the resort.
