Ramada Tropics Resort / Conference Center Des Moines
Ranked #17 of 48 Hotels in Des Moines
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We just took 18 family members to Ramada Tropics Resort. The grandchildren were from 22 months to 14 years old. Everyone enjoyed the water park. There was so much variety! We ordered pizza on our first night. It was every bit as good as the major pizza chains. We were pleasantly surprised! The only issue was the noise until the water park closed at 10:30pm. There were lots of people because it is the best place in Des Moines for winter family fun.

We were satisfied with our stay and the breakfast buffet at the Ramada. Our 4 yr.old granddaughter was disappointed when she couldn't go on the big slide, which she had ridden on a year ago, nor the hot tub, which was also allowed last year.
