Great family atmosphere! Smaller great wolf resort, no wave pool. But great for children under 10. Was able to check in at noon versus 4pm. Check in was easy and quick. Housekeeping staff seemed on their game at the water park- replenishing towels and picking up wet towels.

Overall a fun family trip, room was just freezing at night and there was no way to adjust the air. The water park was clean. Our room was very cute we got the themed bunk bed room. I think the breakfast package was too pricy for not even being able to pick the items.

A truly GREAT place for small children. Nice shallow water activities for non-swimmers. Easy to access regardless of where you traveled from. Several lower priced restaurants near the Lodge to help you control your expenses. A true family activity center.

We took our grandson for a overnight stay. He had a blast. The staff is great and the rooms are spacious. Pack a smal travel bag so you can enjoy the water park even if you can not get into your room.

Most of the employees were wonderful and helpful. The water was pretty cold at times and the air in the restaurants and hall ways was way to cold. We had to wear coats to eat our meals and the kids wanted ice cream but was to cold in the building to enjoy it we shivered it was so cold. The...

The whole family had so much fun. There was something for us all and it was so much more then a water park, we can't wait to come back! The property was clean and staff were all friendly and accommodating!

We went to GW to celebrate our daughter's birthday, but it was not for a 16-y/o, more like for an 6-7-y/o! The grill food was disgusting and overpriced and so was the pizza! We made the best of it though!

Problems with hidden fees for "free" items, lack of things to entertain kids due to hours of operation of MagiQuest, arcade, waterpark. Lifeguard missed small child struggling bc he was more concerned about looking into the water then watching the swimmers. Housekeeping made bed with dirty sheets and lots of icky hair left in the shower from prior fiestas

Clean, fun, great services and shops, good food, waterpark was amazing, friendly people, lifeguards are amazing! Only down side was the hard mattresses. However that was the only even half negative aspect of the trip. Absolutely wonderful and would highly recommend!

I fell in Love. I had such a great time from when we walked in to the time we left. Everyone was nice and helpful. Hated to leave, something to do everyday without even leaving the lodge. Planning on going again next year.
