    Family getaway
    Stayed as a family for a couple days. Great experience with the staff, room and environment! My kids had a great time and they make it very family friendly. You never even need to leave with the stores and restaurants inside. I would recommend bringing a cooler with snacks and drinks though to save yourself some money. Overall top notch!

    Bed bugs crashed our party
    Didn't stay the whole night, around midnight we found bed bugs and had to leave. Staff was cooperative and we were refunded.

    Used my free night (had to pay resort fees), water park was great. Bath tub/shower had hair that was the main thing. Beds were comfy, limited store availability in the hotel, but overall nice time.

    Stayed here on November 23. Tried to book early check in. Informed we can come at 1. but check in isnt until 4, but they give the first available rooms to those who arrive earliest. Informed we would receive text. Requested room next to our friends they said they could accommodate. Changed to use pool, unable to leave luggage at front desk because the lines were huge and after 10 min of waiting decided to go look for our friends. Kept luggage in their room. Around 530 realized we still hadn't received text. Went to desk. Huge lines so went and randomly checked rooms with wristband and one opened so took it. Later went and told manager. He was nice understanding and blamed the woman who checked us in. Ok cool. Gave us late check out for next day. Sweet! Thank you. Miscommunications continued as next day enjoyed amenities then went to get our son down for nap at noon. Knock at door from housekeeping to get room cleaned woke the lil guy up. Informed them we had late check out. He had no more on it. Apologized. etc. Wife and daughter came up to pack up shower, change. While daughter changed, wife showered and kiddo got down for nap, next family came in our room. Really! They left wife called down to desk. I was checking us out. No apology, I got back to room and found out what happened. No communication within their staff turned a negative experience into a double negative! We are in service industry and you always apolagize! Water park A+, hotel D-. Probably wont be back!
