We stayed one night. All in all I gave it five stars. When we booked a room we did one with the little mini cabin for kids. When we checked in they said we booked two queen beds. I didn't feel like arguing it and I'm glad I didn't. We really didn't spend any time in the room. For a one night stay we spent about 15 or 20 hours in the hotel waterpark. The kids had a great time. The lifeguards are top notch. We had one issue with a kid who was acting up and parents were nowhere to be found. Lifeguard were right on top of things and took care of it. I noticed they were even letting the relief lifeguards know of the problem too which was nice. They constantly pace back and forth watching everyone which is a nice change from some other waterparks where the lifeguards just text and play on their phones.
I also noticed that one of the lifeguards was off duty with his girlfriend and was messing around with one of the on-duty lifeguards. I was probably the only one in the whole waterpark that noticed and I said nothing, but I supervisor saw it and was immediately on top of it. I was very impressed.
The total room bill was around $250. Yes, that is expensive. However, if you consider what you would pay for admission to a waterpark, they usually run $30 - $40 per person. So you already have $160 sunk into admission. With this waterpark, it is indoors so the weather doesn't matter. Only guests can use the waterpark and it was not crowded at all during the week.
Everything was clean, very safe, great location. If you want to save some money, I'd avoid the on site food and activities other than the waterpark. I admit I'm cheap so I'm sure others probably won't think the prices are that bad.
