  • Once you step in the front doors of Castaway Bay, you are instantly transported to an island paradise.  The decorations and atmosphere are amazing—almost like a movie set.  There is a hull of a “shipwrecked” boat in the lobby and hallway, authentic nautical decorations, and a “storm” and talking parrots in the waiting area.  Oh!  And keep an eye out for Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang as they roam the halls! Castaway Bay waterpark is nothing short of amazing.  There is a toddler wading pool, two hot tubs (indoor and outdoor), a water coaster, a Creature Cove, Cargo Crossing, wave pool, huge fun house, and an outdoor swimming pool.  There is also a huge, 1000 gallon bucket that “spills” every few minutes to drench innocent bystanders.  (Note:  when you hear the bell, take cover! We found out the hard way.)  Don’t feel like swimming while the kids play?  Relax in one of the hundreds of Adirondack chairs or umbrella tables throughout the park.  You can easily forget you are indoors while relaxing pool side.  You almost expect to look up and see blue sky.
  • The customer service is awesome. The staff at the front desk is second to none. They were extremely friendly working with us through the weekend! The lifeguards were incredible too, playing with kids and making everyone laugh. I definitely reccomend this place for any weekend getaway. Clean rooms, affordable. Simply put, no hassle weekend fun!
  • The resort was a bit older but was well kept and maintained. The water park was so much fun for my 4 and 7 year old. We were able to see across most of the park so it was easy to find each other. It was t super busy and never waited for a slide other then the raft one but it was only 5 minutes. Breakfast buffet was good with a lot of options and just a five minute drive to cedar point
  • Easy check in. Friendly associates. Took care of our defective refrigerator. The room was bigger than expected. The view was beautiful. It could have been a little cleaner. Beds were nice but floors looked like they needed to be cleaned. Probably due to all the dampness from the water park and traffic in the room. Overall would definitely stay again
  • Water park is a good size for the whole family. Bummer a section was closed off during our stay due to high temperature water. A couple things could use touching up cosmetic-wise throughout the facility. Hotel rooms could use updating. Staff was punctual with requested information and need items during our stay. 8 minute drive to Cedar Point which is the reason for our stay.
