Our recent spring break get away with the kids was fun. Three moms + 7 kids (3-9 years) + 2 full days at the water park. It was pricey - all told, it was $400/per family for the stay. We had two nice adjoining rooms with plenty of space for sleeping (a plus). Upon arrival I thought the beds looked like they were made by the folks who had just left, so first impression wasn't solid. However, the rooms are very nice and FULLY accommodated us.
The kids loved the water park, but it definitely didn't live up to the hype I had received. It was COLD! They say on the website the air temp is 84 degrees, but I simply don't believe it. And the water was chilly too. Especially the little ones shivering in the big play area...I was right there with them. Crank up the heat inside and in the water for goodness sake - we want to feel transported! It wasn't as big as I thought it would be from the photos, but again, the kids loved it and that's what mattered. We finally found HOT hot tubs up on the bar deck, but only one of them was ever working, so there were piles of us in it. The main "hot tub" was barely warmer than the other water throughout.
I give them a barely passing on the cleanliness factor...in the drains throughout the walkways there was brown sludge and hair clogging almost all of them (gag!) and I was shocked to realize that no shower was required before entering.
They say you can't bring outside food in, but everyone does. The food there looked terrible - no better than carnival food. A shame for sure, as it could be so much better.
It poured rain so we were grateful for the indoor getaway. If they could change one thing to make it better for me it would be to WARM IT UP!
