4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011

I took my daughter and her 2 cousins to celebrate her birthday. We had a great time. The girls loved the water park and the room. They even got to do a few of the extras. Looking forward to returning soon. Loved that they had free internet. I was able to go into my Netflix via my computer and watch a movie while the girls slept.

My three year old son accidently hurt his finger on Skee Ball. I walked over to the ice-cream shop with a crying boy. There were 3 staff members that helped us by giving him a huge bag of ice. It made my boy giggle. We used it to ice his finger and he was off playing again. Everyone was kind and helpful. The place is also very clean!

From the minute we arrived at the KeyLime Cove resort, we knew this was going to be a special vacation. The staff was attentive and friendly and the hotel is beautiful. The room was very nicely sized and very clean. There were extra linens in the dresser drawers, which was a nice touch. We enjoyed the water park and restaurants. The pizza was very good and hit the spot after a long day of swimming and playing in the water park. I really hope to go back and would highly recommend KeyLime Cove for anyone who wants an affordable, clean, relaxing time away with their family and friends. Worth mentioning, the shuttle that took us to Six Flags Great America was so convenient and the driver was great!

The hotel was clean, lots to do and very close to all the major events in Gurnee.
The staff was very helpful and nice seemed like they enjoyed working there.
I would like to see locks on the bathroom door in our hotel room.

Key Lime Cove is a BLAST! My family and I had a great time. The room was very clean and nice. The water park was hours and hours of fun. Everyone that worked in the resort was nice, polite, and really made an effort to include the children.

The only downside is the restaurants / food. They are all massively overpriced and the food is nothing to write home about. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't good. If the food was actually good, I wouldn't mind the high prices. But, this is not the case.
Avoid the breakfast buffet. It was $13.00 each, for my husband and I, and $8.00 for one child (our other child is young enough to be free) $34.00 for the kind of 'buffet' you would get at a cheap hotel that provides continental breakfast.
With all of this said, we will go back, and just either bring a cooler with our own food, or dine at the restaurants that are near the resort.
