We stayed for 1 night and had a blast. I was worried that with an 11 yr old and 1 yr old it would be hard to keep everyone happy but there was so much to do we all had a wonderful time! The extra children's activities such as coloring, cookie decorating, and the WII dance party all helped the...

We recently stayed at the resort for a mini-getaway. In our party was my husband, my 6 year old son, and myself. The waterpark is small but there is A LOT to do in the waterpark. There are 2 different tube slides, 1 boat slide, 2 body slides to enjoy. There is also another area for kids. It has 4...

We recently spent the weekend at KeyLime Cove. My 4 year-old wasn't quite tall enough for the big slides, but still had a great time with the smaller attractions. My 7 year-old especially enjoyed Dennis, the magician who performed magic tricks. My husband and I appreciated the convenience of the wrist bands to pay and as access to our room....

This was a first time visit and I was disappointed in some areas, and very happy in other areas. I had one of the 2 bedroom suites. It had 2 bathrooms, each room has a tv, a small kitchen area, microwave, mini fridge, and a small dining table. I was surprised how small the water park is. I really expected...

We were there for one night, two days. The room was clean but did have a slight odor. The waterpark was clean but small. My 10 year old would have been bored if we stayed more than two nights. Food was just ok and slightly over priced but that is too be expected. My six year old loved the many...

Dear Heather T, Thank you for choosing KeyLime Cove for your family's getaway.

We came for a few days between Christmas and New Years, I was rather disappointed. The waterpark is very small if you compare it to anything at the Wisconsin Dells. Despite being after Christmas, the holiday songs were on a continuous loop all over the property. The circular slide was fun, but the other slides all loop around, enclosed, but...

Dear Matt A, We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay over the holidays. Our lifeguard staff is highly trained and needs to respond swiftly to any water emergencies. As a result the lifeguards do need to keep scanning the water and the areas to which they are assigned. We are sorry that you felt a chill....

Great location, easy to get to. Something for kids of all ages and adults can sit back and watch. The park is safe and the staff is great. Great music in the park and good availability on the slides. Good restaurants and bars too.

I was here for an event and utilized space upstairs over the weekend. The space was adequate and there was good food selection. Everyone seemingly was having a good time. I would potentially go back with my wife.
