My daughter and I took her 2 little girls (7 and 2 - my grandchildren) for an overnight visit the last weekend in March. We had been to Blue Harbor in the past and really enjoyed our stay. Upon arrival, we were disappointed to see the "changes" made at the resort. The waterpark was only open until 9 pm which was surprising to us since it had been open longer in the past. The restaurant we ate at had a "buffet" for supper and it was $12.95 for adults and around $7.00 for the kids. The buffet was a taco bar and for the price, the food selection was very limited. Our waitress was inattentive and we had to get up from the table several times to ask for soda, etc. It took at least 15 minutes to get soda to begin with. The storyhour was held in a room on the 3rd floor and "certain" kids were allowed to pick the books-my granddaughter felt very left out. It was also hard to hear with the door being left open the entire time. Musical chairs were played after storyhour and numerous children were crying when one chair was eliminated at a time. (suggestion for staff-please remove 3-4 chairs so one child isn't the only one eliminated). It took almost 30 minutes to get an elevator for checking out. This was difficult since the 2 year old was growing more impatient with every passing minute. In the waterpark itself, we felt singled out for bringing the 2 year olds sippy cup with milk we purchased at the restaurant and were told to put it away - this brought tears to a 2 year old. Other guests had bags of chips, crackers, sodas (in cans) and even McDonalds food and were allowed to enjoy it. This truly upset us. The running in the halls continued until well after midnight even after calls to the desk.
As you may have guessed, we will NOT be returning to this waterpark. Expensive and not at all enjoyable.
