Schlitterbahn Beach Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 August 2017

This was our first time staying on the Island but have visiting many times. I must say the beach was amazing. The water was clear and cold and the beach was very clean. Check-in was great, the worker at the gift shop was very nice, so overall a great first impression. We stayed on the 4th floor. Our room was not bad but if you want spotless clean, then this is not the resort for you. The bathroom is so small and it was hard to open the door to even get in to the shower/toilet area. In the middle of the night, I spotted two roaches too. The grill by the beach had great food but a little pricey for a family of 4. I couldn't imagine having more mouths to feed on a budget. Even the pizza at the diner was expensive! Because the water park closes at 6 pm, we spent time at the pools. However, the size of the pools for the amount of guests, are just too small. The first night we were there it was not even 8 pm and the pool bar closed because they were slow. The water park is an added perk to staying on the resort. My family and I really enjoyed spending our day at the outdoor water park and the convenience of being the first ones right when they open. The indoor water park is great but watch the lazy river. This is certainly not your average lazy river. My son got sucked into the current wall that builds the current and releases and was flipped out of his tube busting his head against the cement wall. He had a small gash on his head, nothing open and bleeding, and after that we stayed away from the area. I am not certain if something else occurred because the next day that specific area was closed. I also was very disappointed in the wifi service as I brought work with me and could not get anything done. Our cell phones also did not work. When I called the front desk in the evening, the lady seemed to place the blame on something I was not doing right. Overall, this was a great stay. We will be back and know now some things we would do differently to prepare.

Dear Tammy L

Thank you for your review.

We re happy to hear that overall you all enjoyed your stay. I'm sad to hear that we missed the mark on the cleanliness of your room; we do strive to make our guest experience a good one.
Our wifi issues have been corrected; unfortunately cell phones are an issue with certain providers as we have limited towers here in the valley.

we look forward to seeing you once again.

Clean and comfortable. Good size rooms equipped with microwave and mini-fridge. A little pricey for my budget but better pricing when booked well in advance. Definitely recommend this place for your summer fun!

Overall it was a fun waterpark with the kids. The parking lot was full, and the Wifi was poor. The price is a bit high, but since you get both the indoor and outdoor parks I guess it's worth it. One good thing is that the gift shop is open 24/7, the ice machine works well and the 5th floor view is amazing. The beach is also near the resort and it's just ok. If you use a double float with kids make sure someone can help you get into the water, otherwise it's tough to maneuver.

Dear Robert4915

Thank you for your review.

Happy to hear you and your family enjoyed our parks. We did have a few issues with our WIFI but that has been corrected. With our beach access it does make it easy for our guest to go shell hunting or sit under an umbrella and enjoy the beach.

We hope to have the opportunity to host your family again soon.

Excellent hotel, we had a lot of fun and the kids enjoyed very much. The waterpark is great and the indoor waterPark has a wave pool. We really would love to come back. The attention of the personal hotel was nice too.

Awesome waterpark for Family! It's a little small but worth it to spend the whole day there. You can take snacks and drinks just no alcoholic beverages or glass containers. Food in there is delicious as well as the drinks. I really recommend the MAI TAI from thr bar.
