The place was a little small, it's great if you have small kids. Some of the hot tubs jets didn't work. But the place still was nice.

My son enjoyed it. It was basic for an indoor water park. Zero wow. Lots of floating debris from people's feet from walking in and out.

It's free to owners, that's why we used it. Grandchildren loves it. Can't afford to eat there because it's to expensive.

We stayed at the resort so this was included as part of our package. The kids really love to cool off on the waterslides while the parents float on the lazy river.

Amazing because the water is heated, great place for family fun for the little ones. It's indoor so no one gets sun burnt. Also they have margaritas and beers on the 2nd floor that overlooks the park!
