“It was AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

My family and I went to Key Lime Cove for a short weekend trip because my younger sibling were getting antsy not going anywhere due to everyones hectic schedules. So we decided Keylime Cove would be a great place to go especially for a mini vacation without it interfering with everyone's schedule.
And we had an amazing time. The kids were in awe the whole time with the decor and the actual water park was amazing. The arcade was a lot of fun as well and had great prizes to be won. The food was delicious and the staff was nice, friendly, helpful, and really gave us a great experience. We loved our hotel room as well it was neat and clean upon our arrival. And the activities in the Leapin Lizards were a blast as well. Overall it was an AMAZING time and we would definetly go back.

What a great place to stay and very clean! We had a great time at the resort and then headed over to Six Flags where they provided us with a free shuttle. Love the staff and would go back in a heart beat!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!

My family stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed the food, activities for kids, and mostly the indoor water park. All staff members were helpful and water safety was obviously a priority. We will be back for more fun.

The waterpark wasn't too crowded. The food was great and the arcade was a blast! The room was clean and comfortable and we were provided with everything we needed, Would recommend this place to friends and will be going back soon!

Room Tip: I stayed in a queen deluxe. 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa were perfect for the 4 of us

My family recently stayed here for our second time for 2 nights. I would have to say overall we enjoyed our stay. I don't get why there are so many bad reviews. It actually isn't that bad considering we have stayed at much more fancier hotels in the past. The theme is really nice. Lots of colors and decorations everywhere you look. The rooms are fairly decent. Didn't have any bed bug problems or dirty room issues. The game room was also pretty neat. We did like how you use a credit card type system by loading points onto a card instead of lugging around tokens to every game. Most of the good prizes would require several hundred dollars in tickets though. The water park was the best part. It isn't the biggest and best indoor water part, but it is pretty good. I did notice some of the things in the water park were not working properly, such as some of the hoses on the tower where you spray people. You can tell some of the things in the park are already showing some age even though it is not old. Hopefully they can keep up with things before things start going downhill. There are 5 big slides you can choose from. And I think 3 smaller ones. None of the pools go over 5 feet also. So if you like diving into a deep pool. Then you wont find one here. Some of the life guards could also be a little nicer too. I got yelled at for dumping water on people when it is supposed to be dumped on people. That's the whole purpose of the water tower.

Overall Keylime Cove is a pretty nice place to stay if you just want to get out and try something different. It's not that bad as some people say. Of course prices are going to be high, and of course not everything will be perfect. It was good for our stay though. I would come again! And we hope to come again soon.
