First trip to Kalahari with family (kids ages 8-12). Have been regulars to Great Wolf in Traverse City in the past. The room was spacious and clean. We had a problem with a tub drain and they took care if it promptly. We had booked a two room suite so that we could bring a 6th person. I prefer a firm mattress and the beds were soft.
I know that water resorts are pricy but I want value as well. Even though this water park is larger and geared towards older kids than great wolf, it was not up to the same cleanliness standards. If I am spending hundreds of dollars and waiting in long lines, I don't want to see algae growing, band aids that have fallen off or gum stuck to the floor. This was a big turn off and the main reason I did not give 5 out 5 stars on the rating.
Had dinner in the great Karu. I ordered off the menu but the family had the buffet. My chicken sandwich was OK. Not good or great, but for $10 I was satisfied. The family felt similar about the buffet. Nothing was great but there was something for everyone to eat.
Overall the family had a lot if fun and will definitely come back if we get some of the special promo offers others have mentioned. We'll just not do it during a winter break so we can avoid the lines.
