We came for the Fat Tuesday celebration on 2/17/15. Arrived at 3pm and happily got into our room an hour early to put our swim suits on and enjoy the water park before dinner.

I have been here several times in the past year. The first two times, my family and I stayed on the weekends, and the resort was very busy.

Visited during Presidents Weekend and had to book a two day minimum. Also pricey because each guest requires a band for the indoor waterpark. They also only give a room key wrist band to guest over 16 years of age, which means every time a child needs to go to the room you have to go with them because of...

Took the little kids to this resort in January and had a fun time. The water park is small, but if your kids are small, it is totally sufficient for your needs. The food and drink offerings at the resort were pretty decent and well-priced. The hotel room, however, really left a lot to be desired. They were musty and...
