Stayed her about 7-8 years ago and I don't remember being all too impressed - for what we were charged. We decided to head down this past weekend for a night away and although the rooms were nicely updated, the younger staff make it near possible if you actually need anything from them. FYI - they'll charge you $10 just...

This was our 4th or 5th year of heading to Bridges Bay for a small family reunion. We have been there in January - April. The water park has been repaired since we started going there and now they need to do some work on the condos. A little work to refresh the condos would be great. Overall it is...

First of all, I booked this hotel primarily for the waterpark. I was afraid of the rooms being outdated based on the website photo so was pleased to see the bedding and hotel has been updated since photos were taken. They really should update website photos. Upon arrival I did a quick look around the room and was satisfied that...

Did a quick out of town trip to use the indoor water park at this resort over spring break. The pool was ok more geared to kids under 8. The bad thing was it was only open on the weekend. No extended hours over spring break for families and that was a downer:/ The restaurant is way over priced and...

My family (myself, wife, 3 little girls), my brother in law's family (him, wife, 3 little boys), and my in laws stayed for the whole weekend. The kids had a blast in the water park.

My family has been visiting bridges bay about once a year for the past half decade. Overall, the resort as a whole is very decent and a great deal. First off, the customer service was fantastic, my father lost my car keys and it seemed like they did a decent job to track them down. They never did find them,...
