When you walk in, its so colorful it sucks you in. We had so much fun in the waterpark our daughter wanted to stay all day. Even us adults had a blast. We do wish the restaurants stayed open later but the overall experience was wonderful and suggest you stay for a day/night.

We were a group of 15 families from the old college days and we all had one of our best experiences! The variety of food, very clean rooms, spa, excellent courteous staff, spacious meeting rooms and of course the water park joy! Nothing to complain about, it was just superb!

It had been a few years since we stayed at this hotel so we decided to give it another try. It was just for one night, and I figured the water park wouldn't be too packed, as I thought it was only for hotel guests.
