It was OK
Reviewed 2 days ago

Not the typical resorts I’m use to. I would consider this a 2-3-star hotel “resort”. The room was clean upon arrival and housekeeping did tend to our room daily. The towels did have slight odd smell to them but were clean.

When I stay somewhere I’m big on Pillows. The pillows they had were filled with small pieces of foam. Noting like what you would expect at a Hilton or even Marriott that both carry down/feather pillows.

WiFi in the “resort” was awful! Sometimes it connected and was ok and for the most part it didn’t even work. I would have to go down the lobby area to get on my phone and maybe get decent WiFi.

ATT customers (I’m one of them) service inside the resort was very limited and internet was slow. Just outside on the beach service was fine...which I find kind of odd.

The family had a great time and it was nice to enjoy the indoor water park area. The lazy river flowed fine for us.

Food pricing was decent with taxes a cheeseburger and fries was around $10. Food was hot and fresh.

Adult drinks where good depending on what you order. I first ordered a Bahama Mamma for about $7 which was not strong. I the ordered a “Blue Wave” for about $12 and that did it. It was a nice size drink with various liquors and it did the trick! One of those and I was feeling good for the new few hours. Next time I’ll stick to the blue wave and ride the waves in the river. ;-)

All and all was a nice trip... and the rooms in the hotel where OK.

Lastly the staff was great. If your take the time and talk to them... they will remember you and make your stay that much better.

Disappointed

Did not receive our so called admission tickets that are supposed to be included to the water park due to a mistake between hotels.com and the park. No one seems to want to help resolve the situation. Hotels.com says one thing and the park says another. Meanwhile my trip is ruined! We have visited every summer and never had this type of issue. I suppose it’s time to try Galveston or Corpus! :/

Huge Waste of Money

This was the most sorry excuse for a water park! At $50-65 per ticket I expect way better! The only reason I'm giving 1 star is for the fairly nice hotel room at the resort. As for the water park, the lazy river was so "lazy" that I literally had to get out of the tube to pull us around. The lines for the "rides", which were lame slide, were terribly long. We went around the whole park once and decided it was WAY overrated!!! Most city water parks I've been to were better than this. We did the sleep and play package where you get 2 days of play and one night hotel stay. It was a total of $224. The hotel itself in my opinion is worth $100- $130 per night and I wouldn't pay any more than $10 for the water park. This was suppose to be the highlight of our stay after driving 600 miles and we ended up extremely disappointed!! The beach access was fairly clean and where we ended up spending the most time.

Great time!

Our annual stay at the resort was excellent as every year. We usually arrive on a Sunday and stay during the week to avoid big crowds. The room was clean, the beds were super comfortable, we had a quiet, restful night, and the staff was super nice. The indoor resort, and water park was super fun. Highly recommend it.

We will definitely be back again!

I have to say, the room was nothing fancy, but we honestly weren't in there but to sleep. I love that you walk outside and the park is right there at your feet. It made it very easy for me to let my 11 year old stray and do his own thing and we would meet back at our room to check in with each other. It wasn't busy and the staff was amazing with any requests. I didn't take my 3 year old on this trip, but now knowing how convenient the entire park is, I know it wouldn't be a challenge with everything being all in one location. Don't expect the elaborate parks you're used to with crazy lines, but do know that for families of little kids, this is a great and relaxing spot.
