Be careful about adjoining rooms. I had one and was woken up by cigarette smoke at 2:30 am the first night. Unfortunately the hotel was full and I couldn't be moved. Night desk clerk was not overly helpful. Asked about pork alternative for breakfast. No such luck. Otherwise great stay and facility.

We enjoyed a one night stay there. The water park was not large but we enjoyed it. The staff was attentive. The room was nice and there were plenty of soft towels in the room and lots of towels in the water park.
We did wish the bar was open past 10PM ,but we would probably not appreciated that if we had a room on the interior near the bar.
