Anytime we visit a place where we haven't been, we use Tripadvisor.com to help us choose hotels, restaurants, etc., so it is important to me to make sure I write a review when we return so we can help others to make their decisions, too. There were only a couple of reviews for Big Splash that concerned me and either 1. They have done a lot of work to fix the issues or 2. Those reviewers just had really strange circumstances. This place is awesome for kids! We just returned from a one night stay with our 5 and 6 year old and they had a blast. I never once had an issue with their level of cleanliness. Everything was clean, I didn't notice any funny smells, and there were no bugs, whatsoever. I thought there were plenty of staff available and there may have only been 1-2 people that weren't smiling. They were all very pleasant. The real problem is not with the hotel or the staff or the food. The problem is that people these days do not watch their kids, and too many kids are not taught to be considerate of others. The life guards did a good job of watching the kids in the water park, but the hotel staff cannot babysit 24/7 and I literally was up all night listening to kids run up and down the hallways, and the constant sound of doors slamming. I even got up once to take a peak out to see what was going on, and there were adults out there, too! (this was at 10:30 pm). I noticed that there was a sign in the hallway indicating that there was a mandatory quiet time from 10:00 pm to 8:00 am.... but those people could not have cared less. Being there with 2 small children who had been in the park all day, we were in bed by 8:30, so I think the quiet time should start even earlier but like I said before, it doesn't really matter what the sign says. The free breakfast was pretty good for being free, and it is nice that there are a couple of places to eat on site. Prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be back!
