I was looking for something to do with grandkids and someone suggested this hotel/waterpark. I booked room and later thought to check reviews on this site. I got somewhat worried and almost reconsidered. I'm glad I didnt and am booking again for next year. We were there for 4 days with no ill effects from the chlorine - due to poor weather we could not go to the zoo or amusement park, and spent several hours every day in the park (five adults and 3 children). The staff were all very nice and friendly - from the front desk to the restaurant, grill and snack bar and housekeeping. It is a wonderful place for family with children. I CAN see where it could get crowded in season but that holds true anywhere you go. I also read where people thought it expensive to eat here. I dont know where they are used to but we found the in house restaurant,grill/restaurant, pizza place, and bakery all within acceptable limits. Yes, it is a little pricey but the convenience more than made up for the extra costs and the food was all good. The in park snack bar has multi adult offerings for a "meal" with burger/fries/drink for $8.00 something - the kids were 7.00 something. We live in South Florida and a burger and fries out (other than Wendys/Mc D's quality) are that plus some and not with a drink.
The bar had wonderful frozen drinks - grandparents not used to all the kids all day need a little "something" at the end of the day - again, priced same as most places we have gone. The bakery WAS expensive. Fresh baked apple turnovers and donuts for the "crew" was over $20.00 but again was very good. We stuck to just donuts the next few days and that wasnt as bad. Fresh towels, cribs, anything cheerfully brought to room.
Everyone tried hard to please and seemed happy to be there.
So, read reviews, but remember there are always some people who take their misery with them everywhere they go, and it seems more often than not THEY are the ones who respond to these sites - that is mainly why I wrote this!!!
