Everyone enjoyed multiple areas of fun, easy bar access and amazing restaurant attached to property. Fun indoor Waterpark as well! Rooms weren't anything to write about and could have been much bigger and better features for the price!

While this is a very nice resort, the basic rooms are missing some of the things you would expect at this price for lodging. No microwave or fridge, no room service or hot breakfast options. On your own!

It was a good stay but cost is high and water park is not always open in the off season (after Labor day) along with a lot of other thing around the lakes area.the room was good and having the full kitchen is nice with the space in the living room area.

We did a girls weekend. It was awesome. The facility is very nice clean friendly. We had a small snag regarding checkout date but the staff was able to clear it up and make it work. The food was good. Close enough for day time walk to town. Cab back.

I'm sure this review will be erased. This over priced facility is nice enough but the price for a room was unbelievable. In addition, they charged an extra $10 for a pass to Boji Splash. From what I understand this is something the Board voted on. Whatever the case it leaves a bad taste in the mouth. It seemed like...

The resort was excellent in every way except in cleanliness. I witnessed trash sit in a hall way for the 3 days we were there even though I personally saw staff walk by it multiple times every day. My impression was that it was a bunch of college/high school age staff that had not been properly trained or managed. I...

We checked in Labor with our 5 yr old and 18 month old only to find out the waterpark had closed at 5pm. We were not advised of this. We had VERY disappointed children as this was the ONLY reason we went to this hotel. When I had called to change my reservation, the agent said "you better decide soon...

Very nice resort for a family. Rained for our entire vacation in okoboji and the indoor waterpark saved the weekend. Would be nice if there was a little breakfast buffet but the restaraunt served nice lunch and dinner.
