We stayed for three days at the hotel and water park. Our hotel room was very nice and clean! One time, we stayed in our room till after housekeeping had been through our hallway, and we didn't expect them to come back and tidy up the room, but when we came back from the water park, the room was tidy and clean.
Staying at the Castaway Bay hotel was a great idea because with our package, we got 4 passes to Soak City, 2 all day passes to Cedar Point, and 4 Twilight Passes to Cedar Point (to use after 5 p.m.), so we stayed at the hotel AND got to go to Cedar Point (which is a 5 minute drive from the hotel, or, if you wish, you can take an hour long cruise on the river from the hotel to Cedar Point) as well as Soak City without paying any admission fees to the parks. On top of that, we got $30 to spend on the dining facilities inside Castaway Bay, and several dining facilities inside Cedar Point. Basically, you get what you pay for AND more.
The water park itself was a surprise. True, I expected it to be bigger, but the rides were fun and enjoyable. I loved that it was indoors because you didn't have to deal with sun block or bugs flying around like you would at an outdoors water park! And if we did feel like going to an outdoors water park, we still had our free Soak City passes.
Dining there was great! They have a full bar on the second floor, a buffet on the first floor, and TGI Fridays. There's also a sweets shop that sells Krispy Kream and Starbucks products.
Couldn't have asked for a better vacation
