  • Soooo sad I didn't get to stay. We made reservations and get there and they say they shut down the water slides facilities 20 minutes before we arrived. Extra sad for my 4 daughters that was going to be our big family trip this summer. Instead ended up with a crappy room at another hotel. Trip ruined. I hope next summer will be different
  • Waterpark portion of resort was very nice as facilities were all in working order, decently clean, and water was warm. As for the hotel portion of the resort, it seemed very mismanaged. After waiting in a very long front desk line (not enough staff) to check in, we went to our King suite room #201 which had been completely missed by housekeeping. Called front desk, barely got a "sorry" and we were asked to come back to front desk for a different room. Again, waited in front desk line forever then barely got a "we are sorry for your trouble." We were given a different King suite room #205 and told we were "lucky" because it was their last room available. Walked back up to #205 which had been "cleaned" only to settle in and later discover hairballs and dust bunnies, a loud out-dated room heater that barely worked, and a tube TV with a broken remote. Hotel hallways were cold and dirty. Easily visible air vents looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a couple years. Because of this first impression, we refused to eat at any of the resort restaurants. It seemed there were hotel staff living in guest rooms on the floor as well. Would have complained again but didn't want to waste any more time with hotel staff. They were always understaffed and seemed too busy to extend basic courtesy and good customer service manners. It appeared to us that the hotel needed more staff and probably different upper management. IF we ever go back it will be for the water park only by purchasing day passes so we can stay at a better hotel nearby.
  • This hotel should be shut down. Horrible management, rooms weren't ready 90 mins after chrckin time. Water park was shut down early on a holiday for an unannounced private party. Restaurant staff had 1 cook and food ordered was on a 2 hour delay. Half of the slides in the water park didn't work. Horrible experience and staff didn't seem to care at all when we complained.
  • I stayed there with a bunch of my friends. The waterpark was fun, but the stair climb to get to the slides was exhausting, but manageable. Was hard to get tubes for the big slides, but there was a lot of people. The hotel part on the other hand was not so great. Our room couldn't reach their wifi so we had to sit in the hallway to get a connection. Also the hallways smelled like weed big time. My friends and I all felt very uncomfortable when a guy came out of the room next to us and asked me personally if i wanted to walk somewhere more private or if I just wanted to come into his room with his friends. At this point we didn't even care about the wifi we wen't back into our room. This doesn't really concern the staff, but they could improve the wifi. The next morning we started to pack up and found to centipedes in the bathroom crawling around. I don't recommend the hotel part, but the waterpark was fun. Especially for the younger ones. Next time will find a separate hotel for sure.
  • Stayed 1/23/16 It's just ok If I were a kid I would give 5 stars, my children enjoyed them selfs. I didn't have any issues with staff at check in or out, they were friendly. I liked the western theme & the kids club every hour they had stuff for them to do & thats about all they had good, arcade is small the waterpark was full and so no towels for us to use. Due expect eyes and nose to burn from chlorine, super strong.. Our Villa was nice bed was comfortable. I think they need to update some of the hallway furniture some pieces were broken and old couch and chairs could be thrown out.. Bar was dead for a Saturday night but hey it was nice to relax and get away with family.. I checked the place out once and I'm good, don't plan to ever go back. Unless they do some major remodel or something. We didn't eat there as buffet was 20$ person and the Grill menue didnt have anything I was in mood for that was ok prices.. oh and keycard swiper on the outside side doors did not work lock myself out and learned that and a person says to me oh they never work as if they were regulars.. If its for kids go swim but other than that dont waste your time. Not the greatest area either if that matters to anyone but that didnt bother me.
