I took my son(8) and my goddaughter (11) to the resort over spring break vacation. It was raining the whole time we were there. Which worked in our favor bc it was 84 degrees inside!!!!!
I booked the Swim like a Fish package which included tickets to Adventure Aquarium and 2 $10 voucher for the game room in addition to the 2 nights and 3 day waterpark/hotel package.
After reading some of the reviews I was concerned bc the last trip we did was to Great Wolf Lodge and I wasn't sure how it would compare. I didn;t have to worry the kids had a ball and so did I!
The kids liked:
The three slides (older and adventurous parents would love this also)
The lazy River
The basketball pool
The Adventure Aquarium(EXCELLENT AQUARIUM) nice day trip and a little break fom all the water. Of course when we came back they stayed at the water park until closing!!! :-)
The Game Room (according to my son the prizes suck, I agree, lol)
The early check in (12:00pm)
The Lifeguards were attentive and excellent (especially the supervisor, who constantly monitored the lifeguards and provided training, kudos to him)
The Adventure Aquarium (Excellent, the hotel provided great written directions and it really is only 20 minutes away from the hotel)
Nice size rooms and comfortable beds
They serve adult drinks (alcoholic beverages)
Free refills on drinks (soda)
Adult only hot tub spa
They are not strict about bringing in snacks (although I wouldn't be obvious about it)
Two night and three days is enough you really don't need more than that. Everyone was very friendly and it wasn't too crowded. Mid-day is when it most crowded. Early morning and after five it's less people.
Children under eight would also love this place. They have their own pool upstairs and downstairs there is slides and other fun things for them.
Overall an excellent place for an affordable child friendly mini vacation.
Wear a swimsuit, it is hot in there.......I felt no cold spots
Bring your own snacks and drinks
If your staying overnight, eat elsewhere, Be prepared to do those jug handled turns when dining out
Bring your own towel
Adults: there is no adult swimming pool
