It’s just a smaller version of Kalahari and well worth the money. The waterpark is top notch and watch to do there. But the only complaint I have is their small children running down the halls at 2 o’clock in the morning, what are their...More

This place only gets a one star because I can’t give it a zero. When we got there the desk was slow and understaffed. After waiting 20 minutes to talk to someone, we were told our room wasn’t ready because it was still getting cleaned....More

A great water park, not too large thst it's overwhelming. The slides are fun, there us plenty for younger kids to do as well. The breakfast buffet is full and tasty and the kids club is staffed by very friendly people!

We stayed at this hotel for a soccer tournament with 10-15 other families. Now, I understand that large groups like these can overwhelm staff staff. However, the cleanliness of the room shouldn’t have anything to do with this. I kept finding ants in the bedsheets....More

Prices are very high, which is understandable...but c'mon, for what we're paying, the least they could do is offer free coffee. It disgusting that EVERYTHING has a price tag. Some of the life guards are just boorish and uncaring. My kids had fun, which is...More
