Great for families that don’t care where they go
I get it. It’s family and kid oriented. Guests are what ruin the experience. They’re loud, unruly, and filthy. Parents don’t have a handle in their kids most times. A vacation is to unwind not be a slob, no one is here to clean up after you unless you have a personal butler and you should teach your children good behaviors before thrusting them out into the public. It just makes what should be a fun family getaway as a mediocre experience. While the place is vast, many different options are available, the entire place smells and feels unsanitary. The staff is nice and helpful but they merely “just work there”.

A nice getaway for us however I did not do my research ahead of time to see if the hotel had a hot tub. It unfortunately does not. If I had checked first I would have went to the Great Wolf in the Dells.
