“Really Enjoyable”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

My family and I really enjoyed ourselves at the hotel. We loved the balcony, which was fenced in and "mosquito proof". It was great sitting on it and enjoying the fireworks.

I enjoyed the fact that it was so close to Cedar Point and by staying here we got free parking passes.

I would recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: I had a room on the second floor facing the bay. It had a screened in porch. It was a very nice ro...

We loved our stay at Castaway Bay. We checked in on July 4th. We really enjoyed the waterpark and our room had a beautiful view of the little bay. We were able to see Cedar Points fireworks from the patio on our room. We were able to get into Cedar Point an hour early the next day which was great for parking and for ride wait times. We will definitely stay here again!

We stayed in a Tarpon suite, the suite was pretty nice. Having the bunk beds for the kids in a separate living space was very nice and gave us the extra space we needed as a family of 5. We did have a couple issues with housekeeping - they kept forgetting to bring towels and replenish the coffee for the morning. But the hotel staff was very nice and brought us everything that housekeeping forgot. The waterpark is pretty much for kids 12 and under, my 14 y/o enjoyed it with her little sister, but it is not something she would choose to do on her own. TGI Fridays at the hotel was horrible, two more minutes and we would have left without our food and so overpriced, I do not recommend going there. There is a pizza place called The Pie Factory...call them for delivery and eat in your room...Delicious and affordable.

Not sure if I would stay again. The staff was very friendly but . . . the only day we were able to spend in the waterpark 3 slides (there are only 4) were not working and my kids could not play near the bucket holding the water so we were left with the wave pool and hot tub.
Our room was eh. The kids had no where to store their clothes other than their suitcases, the air conditioner didn't seem to be working at full capacity (was kind of sticky in the room) and my son's bed smelled of urine.
But all in all we still had a Great time

We paid a little more than some other comparable hotels but the clincher was the early entrance to Cedar Point topped off by GREAT customer service. We had an issue with the reservation intially but teh team worked to gether to resolve it. At check-in, because it was slow that evening, we asked and received a water view room at no additional charge.

Room Tip: Check in early. Ask staff for best available room.

The rooms need to be re-modeled...as they are very outdated. Our mini fridge was not working, but was replaced within 30 minutes of making a phone call. The kids (ages 4 and 8) loved the waterpark, but one of the main slides for their age group(pineapple plunge?) was not open either of the days we were there. Breakfast at Mango Mike's was delicious. The arcade was too expensive!! Despite this, we still had a very enjoyable stay at Castaway Bay.
