“Nice water park for kids.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Water park is perfect for kids 12 and under. Enough to challenge them but not too much to cause them to be over whelmed or get lost in the crowds of older kids. Our condo was just as described, with almost everything we needed. (Only issue was that the dishwasher (#724) does not clean. It runs, but doesn't clean the dishes.)
Service was very helpful and friendly. Life guards and staff in water park were diligent and nice. Snacks and drinks in water park were reasonably priced.
Plenty of paths and a beach area to take a walk around and get outdoors.
Parking and numbers of units is a little confusing. There is one set of numbers from the backside of the building and another in the front.

I agree that the numbering of the villa units gets confusing. The unit numbers and the physical address of the units are different. The physical address has to be posted on the back of the buildings for 911 purposes, but we will come up with a solution. Thank you for reminding me!

Initially I did not know what to expect. I was able to enjoy attending a friends wedding the other weekend at this great resort an hour from Milwaukee WI. The service and food quality we received was outstanding. I feel the F&B team or chef really care about what they present and the guests experience. They really shared the fact that if this was your first visit ( which it was for us), they wanted to insure it wouldn't be the last. My feeling is they have a lot of repeat loyal guests that visit throughout the year. We had a room that was lake view type and so worth the extra money. I had a friend who faced the city or "resort" and know his driveway view was not what we enjoyed. The rooms are spacious and I heard being renovated in the coming weeks. The meeting space, where the reception was, had Lake views and a great terrace to step out to enjoy the sounds of waves. Although I did not utilize the water park on the opposite end of the resort, I did go look at it and will just say I'm not forgetting my swim trunks on my next stay.. Hopefully in Feb or March, where I will get a good deal and enjoy a two night stay. At that time I will also splurge on a nice dinner at their fine dining restaurant. The menu looked wonderful, but the plans did not allow for us to dine this time.

Thank you so much for recognizing our staff's passion for service! I will pass along your comments! The resort came under new ownership and management about a year and a half ago. Our employees stuck with us and have really made a difference in a financial turnaround at the property. Many people are surprised about Sheboygan. Everyone knows about Door County and The Dells but many still think of Sheboygan's waterfront as an industrial area. Remember to bring your swimsuit next time! It's always 85 degrees in the water park.

We are a family of four from Milwaukee and went to Blue Harbor 3x this past year. Loved it every time. It never was crazy busy, like in the Dells. And the waterpark is perfect for small childeren (ours are 3 and 6 yeard old). You must get a room with a lake view, just beautiful! Rooms, beds are comfortable and cozy. Staff was always friendly and accomdating. Definitely we'll be back in 2013!

We spent two nights in the Blue Harbor Resort and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and alert, and gave great service. The location is awesome. The indoor water park is sort of amazing and a big draw for families with kids. Sheboygan is a nice town and even though we were there in cold weather it was a fun time. Reasonable prices.

Room Tip: Lakeview rooms with fireplaces are enjoyable. The Captain's Suites have two bedrooms, a kirchen...

We have stayed twice now- once when my daughter was 2, and again last weekend (she's now 4, my son is 2.) The rates are insanely reasonable. We wanted to stay a few months ago and the water park was closed, so we booked a "regular" hotel with a pool- which cost only about $50 less in Sheboygan. For us, it's the perfect location to meet family that live about 3 hours North of Sheboygan, so we will return!
Overall, the water park is wonderful- not huge, but not crowded. That is perfect for our family with young children. THe rooms aren't swanky, but they are clean and they offer a variety of layouts to meet your needs. The resort is beautiful. I love the upgrades to the lobby. We had brunch in the restaurant off the lobby the first time, and it was very good. Also reasonably priced. Last time we stopped at a family restaurant off the circle/roundabout and it was also good (though in my opinion, breakfast is usually decent just about anywhere.)
I do recommend this as a quick getaway. It is worth the time and money, and provides a lot of fun for the kids with very little stress for me.

Room Tip: The large rooms facing the lake are airy and bright. the kid aquarium is blue, with rocks- and my k...

This place is good to relax and chill with your busy life. Feel the time comes to a slow again after that busy city life. It's a family friendly place for those have little ones, great activities and pool security to ease your mind. Staff are well trained and focus to safety on the pool side.

Restaurants in the premises are great place to dine. They have casual bar and dining in a separate restaurant and semi formal restaurant on the other end. Great place on summer, sitting along Lake Michigan, picture yourself amazing atmosphere to relax!

We have been having family getaways here for about 6 years. Blue Harbor has undergone a major remodelling project. While many changes are minimal as in painting and carpeting, they have done a major remodel of the lobby area. I truly missed the huge staircase as we entered, but soon realized how much of the beautiful view of Lake Michigan that it had obstructed. Now when you enter you have the beautiful voew of the lake. The waterpark is still great for the kids, particularly younger ones. The remodeling included the two restaurants off of the lobby. The improvements to the "On the Rocks" bar and restaurant were the most impressive to our group. In the past we never felt that there was a comfortable bar area in which to meet in the hotel proper. Now it is open, comfortable, and serves excellent food.

We also ate at t he Latitudes restaurant one evening. We were disappointed in the food. Though to give them credit, it was the first week-end of a new menu, so based on everything else, we would give them another chance.

As always, the place was clean and very well cared for. The entire staff was friendly, greeting you as you passed them in the halls.

We love the fact that you have been coming here for 6 years! We are also appreciative that you recognize the improvements we've made. I agree the staircase was beautiful but it doesn't match the majesty of Lake Michigan! We will be replacing all guest room carpets and adding closets to all guest rooms this winter. As for your Latitude experience, sorry that wasn't perfect but recognizing it was the first night of the new menu was appreciated. Please look me up the next time you are here. I'll have the Chef prepare a few samples for you!
