The room was big and clean. The bed was awful. I was suppose to stay 2 nights but elected to only stay 1 after sleeping in their bed. Ate at Ivory Coast, it is way over priced. Took forever to get waited on. Had the stir fry, the veggies were burned no sauce on the chicken for $19. Drinks are... More

This resort is the best for an indoor waterpark. The pros are there is tons to do, plenty of things to keep the kids busy, good restaurants, indoor and outdoor waterparks, an animal park. The cons are prices are very high and it is extremely crowded on the weekends. I am not a fan of waiting in line for water... More

We appreciate the accolades Jamie! We are a great compliment to a Cedar Point trip, since we're a weather proof attraction. While it may not be possible for everyone, some of our guests do enjoy coming mid-week, they feel there's less of a crowd, we also offer some great mid-week deals as well. Check them out on line or on... More

Don't let the room picture of the "Dessert Room" fool you. I can't speak for other rooms, but or room was pretty unpleasant. This is what was bad; two flies that I could not catch until the last hour of leaving, caught one. Out of respect for it, I let it go in the hall. Caulk around tub was peeling,... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the resort for 2 days for a quick little getaway with our 2 kids. The hotel room was disgusting to say the least, the carpets were dirty and the ceiling had some kind of scum sprayed on it that looks like it had been there for a while. The bathroom had a nasty...

We treated our grandkids to a few days of fun and relaxation at Kalahari Resort. The resort was super clean, the staff were very friendly, and the indoor and outdoor park was exceptional. We will return soon as they are already begging us to go back.

Seems as if it's going downhill here. This was one of the best water parks I enjoy going to. However the last couple stays service has been lacking.

I took my two granddaughters (14 and 9) for an overnight this past week. Our room was available when we arrived early and the accommodations were nice. We had two queen beds and a sofa bed done in an African motif. The price included all day passes to the water slides and pools. Most of the attractions are indoors, but... More
