My husband and I are from Chicago and we wanted to get away from the city for our first anniversary. We decided to go here at the last minute. I read the reviews and was a little nervous, but shouldn't have been. It was better than expected. We booked a King Spa Suite. It was very clean and bright. The... More

We are water park afficionados from Wisconsin who have stayed in every water park in the state, and I'll give you the following tip...GO TO WISCONSIN DELLS!! Key Lime Cove is a great idea that cut WAYYY too many corners! The place is beautiful at first glance, but upon closer inspection is very chintzy. Check in was fairly quick (it... More

Key Lime Cove was a good idea that ran afoul of its execution. My family (which includes a toddler) went to Key Lime on Christmas Day 2008 and stayed two nights. My father died this summer and we wanted to spend Christmas anywhere that wasn't our house. The resort and the restaurants were not prepared for a large influx of... More

We were excited to try this park as it is new, and considerably closer than the Dells. What a disappointment! We stayed only one night(thank goodness) on New Years Day. First of all, the place was completely over-sold. We couldn't find an inch of real estate to sit, or eat inside the water park. You expect crowds over the holidays,... More

After reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor, I was a little nervous about our trip to KeyLime Cove, but our experience was quite positive (stayed one night, Dec. 30). We stayed with another family and between our two families we had 2 teenage girls and 2 13-year old boys. All four kids loved the water park. I specifically asked... More

This is the worst hotel. Oppon entering the hotel we waited in a 15 min check-in line. we received our room number and got our "electronic wristbands" that was like a key card. The room was ok the furniture was beat up, which was unusual because it opened a week ago. The waterpark was small it only had 5 little... More

Key lime cove indoor water resort. Great slides and a wave pool that you have trouble walking through. DW Alexanders is the best restruaunt. Located down stairs and wide to the left.

I have been to Key Lime Cove a few times and we had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was very pleasant. The food is a little pricey but everything we had was very good! The staff was excellent at D.W. Anderson's. The kid's had a great time in the arcade as did the adults. It's a nice place to go... More

What a pleasant surprise. As you walk in you will think you have entered a fabulous paradise island resort. The photos of the water park do not come close to reflecting what a great enormous place this really is. Kids absolutely love it and can stay busy all day in the waterpark and at night there is a huge game... More

DW Anderson's at Keylime Cove left a lot to be desired. We entered the new Keylime Cove facility and it really takes you away from the cold & snowy winter. It is an incredible experience once you walk through the door. You feel like you just got off an airplane and landed in Florida. The inside is just paradise for... More
