Pros: We have been coming to Kalahari with our kids who are now teenagers for many years. The oldest, the twins are 18 and they still find a lot to keep busy during our stay. This year we got a living social deal (and it definitely was a deal including a two bedroom suite of Kalahari's choice and indoor theme park passes). We requested a specific two bedroom suite and they told us they could not guarantee but when we arrived that was the suite they had given us. It was a Royal African Suite and it worked out well for our family of 5. The master had a Jacuzzi and the kitchenette included a coffee maker, microwave and a small fridge, the living room had a fireplace and the kids bathroom had a very large vanity.
The staff was friendly, the beds were comfortable and walking paths were OK. If you are a runner, you have to be more inventive as the paths are short and it is located by a busy road within approx 3 city blocks.
We were here during a slow time so the lines were short if at all-maybe 4-5 people in line for body boarding at most. If you can find family vacation time in May, this is the best we have ever seen crowd-wise.
The indoor water park has really expanded and the hot tubs are very nice.
The indoor theme park has really expanded, too and we really had a good time. The girls all LOVED the new 4-D theater, this is included with the indoor theme park pass and it is there new favorite. We all did the ropes course, Steve helped us along and 3/5 of us made it all the way across. If you are afraid of heights, its ok to just go to the second level too:)
Cons: And the reason it only gets four stars-
1. They no longer offer stand up surfing, only body boarding because of some liability issue.
2. When you sign the credit card machine when you arrive, you are opting in for a $750 pending charge on your card and they don't tell you this info. (This $ is available for using your room key to charge while you are here and when you check out it is released-)
