I was concerned after reading some of the reviews. We just returned and we had a great time! Our hotel room was clean, and all of the staff were very friendly. I was so concerned it would be dirty, that I even brought our own sheets! :) But they were not necessary. We had two maintenance issues that were resolved...

This could have been a nice review until I checked my bank statement to find out I had been charged a cleaning charged and deemed guilty for smoking in the room. This couldn't be furthest from the truth. Sadly how many other people have been deemed guilty for smoking when they don't even smoke. While entering our outdated and dingy...

Stayed one night as a quick spring break get away. Girls, ages 12 and 13 loved it. Plenty to keep them busy. Front desk staff was excellent, rooms were clean and well kept, property was tidy and resort activities, although a little "young" for my girls were still fun. Water park was pretty deserted while we were there, perk of...

My family (wife and 2 kids ages 3.5 and 1.5) stayed from a Thursday to Saturday morning. Before we arrived we found out that a section of the water park was going to be closed and while we weer disappointed, we knew that there should still be plenty of activities for the kids to do. When we arrived, the staff...

Me and my family were traveling south and stopped in to Castaway Bay for the waterpark. The front desk staff was very pleasant with the purchasing of our tickets. The water park was very clean and the kids really enjoyed themselves. One of the biggest things that stuck out the most was from one of the lifeguards (Justin) if I...

This hotel had everything and more! Beds were perfect, house keeping was friendly, front desk were friendly, ice cream was delicious, gift shops were cool, had an arcade, water park was THE BEST PART, and rooms are really cool in design/pictures. There is one thing that was ok, which was the balconies, they could have been cleaner, even though my...

Check in was a breeze. We were headed to our room (448) within 5 mins. We stayed in a family room (king bed on one side / 2 bunk beds in room within room). We found the room to be ok but the kids were ecstatic! The water park was very nice. Took the kids to Quaker Steak and Lube...

Nice hotel with nightly activities for the kids and the stay includes wrist bands to the water park. Also attached is a small arcade. View room are nothing more than the ability to over seen the pond that is present in the picture. Maybe I have just been spoiled living on a great lake my whole life but the view...

We have visited Castaway Bay twice and find it to be a great 2 day get-away. The waterpark is compact but a lot of fun, especially with the wave pool and the water coaster. The resort type atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. And it is a great value compared to similar facilities. Not a bad thing to say about it....

Wanted to take our three kids ages 3,4,9 somewhere for the weekend. It was well worth the money. Didn't want to spend $500+ at a bigger resort. The pool area was very nice. They kept the area nice and warm including the water. The lifeguards are very trained and do a good job at watching the little ones. A few...
