Our recent visit was three days, two nights in late March when the outside activities were not available. We are grandparents and stayed with our son, daughter-in-law, and a 3 and 5 year old.
The kids loved it - no question about it. Its all about the kids here.
At check-in the kids were greeted by members of the "Cub Team" who entertained them and made them balloon figures. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful. A previous reviewer noted that the lifeguards were very focused on their jobs and I completely agree. We felt the water features were very safe and well managed.
Many have mentioned that the place is pricey. However, this location is very close to the Legends Outlets Mall with many dining options and there are fast food options such as McDonalds that are only a few minutes away. We ate breakfast in our room, the rooms have a refrigerator and microwave, and ate our other meals off premises. This not only reduced cost, but gave us a chance to get out of the water and rest. We also avoided many of the pricey add-on activities and found less expensive alternatives.
The original price quoted to us for bunk beds for the kids was $50. We did not take that option, but then received an email offering a discount and had another opportunity to reduce the price at check-in. Obviously further discounts are based on availability, but I would recommend not taking the bunk beds at the full price.
I agree with other reviewers that the property shows some wear. Our bathtub was of the plastic variety and the floor underneath moved and creaked during each shower. The room was not well dusted by housekeeping and we received wash cloths instead of hand towels the first day. Our heating/cooling unit did a good job of maintaining temperature but was extremely noisy. The beds were too soft and hard to sleep in. The room is more expensive because the water park is included, but the hotel facility is not of equivalent quality for the price that is charged.
But, the kids don't notice these things - they loved it. So for me, this is a place to visit with the kids at least once, especially if you live within an easy drive.
