I reviewed this place last year on our first visit, and most of the details are pretty much the same as far as the room, food, and water park.
This time, we were a smaller group for the first few days and wanted to save some $, so we got a cheaper room for 2 nights, then switched to the KidKabin with the bunk beds for the last night. I believe we had the Family Suite first - 2 Queen beds, and a little separate living area with a foldout couch. I think the Queen beds in this room were more comfortable and not as hard as the one in the KidKabin, for what it's worth.
We were very impressed on how smoothly the room change went - we were allowed to stay in our first room until the second was ready, and had no problems.
We were there Fourth of July weekend, and had some rain, so the indoor part could get pretty crowded. It was bearable until the wave pool got started - the lifeguards are good, but you must keep an eye on younger ones in there regardless of how well they swim. The wave pool was lined wall to wall with tubes, and once my 9 yr old had a difficult time finding a place to come up for air.
One downside is that they had to close some areas periodically because of little ones pooping and on one occasion vomiting. While not pleasant to think about, I think GWL handled it appropriately, but we had not encountered this on either of our previous visits.
The room rates over the holiday weekend were horrendous - had we been able to go any other time we would have.
Overall, it's a wonderful fun time for kids, probably as close to "Disney-like" as you will get in TX. But go during the week if you can.
