My kids had so much fun and my husband and I enjoyed spending time together too. Clean, friendly comfortable. There is a nice sports bar / restaurant in the hotel. Also a gift/ snack shop. Two pool areas both with hot tubs and swim up bar; all while remaining kid friendly. Plan on spending $$$.

It was clean. Staff was friendly. Comfortable beds. Large rooms. Small snack bar but was able to get what we wanted late at night. No children with us but appeared family friendly. Pools were large and clean.

Pools are open from 8 am til 10:30. Kids loved it, but they had a tough time sleeping at night. Adults couldn't sleep either because of the noise of the pools. Great game room with electronic tickets and money on a card. Great pools and water slides. Nice refrigerator and coffee maker in the room.

Very nice place and clean! Pool areas are nice, but shouldn't be so stingy about outside food and drinks. The individuals monitoring the pool area were odd..

We stay every year when we visit Adventureland Park for a little family getaway. It's a nice place, convenient to the park with complimentary shuttles.

It was a great hotel but the water park was not ready yet. The staff was friendly. We didn't have microwave. The bathroom was tiny but overall we are okay with the room we got but the room price does not justify the lack of amenities.
