“GREAT PLACE!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The swimming was the best part and kept our young twins entertained most of our stay and they had a blast!!! The only problem that I seen was the ropes that were set up between each slide for the effects was nice but it was really dangerous for young kids. They don't want to take the time to walk around them and they got a ton of scrapes and bruises becuase of them. But they had a blast and very enjoyable for mom and dad as well!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We had a great evening enjoying the water park. 3 hours of it. Well worth the price of the room. All of the staff were great and very attentive to us from check in, the Tiki Bar, and checkout. The room was great and we slept well. We will definitely go back to this Ramada!
