We spent a wonderful afternoon, evening and night at Castaway. Three adults and three kids age 10, 6, and 2. The indoor water park had areas age appropriate for each kid. It was clean, warm, and exciting. We ate at TGI Fridays, attached to the hotel. Also very kid friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable, if a bit cozy...

This hotel had all the bells and whistles. Restaurants on the bay, nice rooms, great customer service, arcade and waterpark. We did go to Cedar Point which was very close to the resort, however I am not a fan of roller coasters so the waterpark was an amazing bonus for me! We cannot wait to take our new addition to...

The hotel is very nice. The waterpark at the hotel is a GREAT bonus (especially if the weather is not cooperating and you planned on visiting Cedar Point). The food in Ebb's and Eddy's (their snack bar) was reasonably priced. The hotel is only a short drive from Cedar Point. Also, there is a TGI Friday's on property too which...

2014 was my family's second vacation to Castaway Bay and Cedar Point and we all had the best time. Dollar for dollar it's the best vacation location we have found. The indoor water park is so fun and I never had to worry about the kids because life guards are everywhere. We also enjoyed the Peanuts in the lobby, the...

My wife and I took our boys here and to Cedar Point for a little mini vacation and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. The staff was very friendly and the resort is so much fun. The whole family loved it!

We were looking for a place to stay for our first visit to Cedar Point and came across this hotel. I was intrigued because of the location (near the park, but not at the park), access to early entry, and an indoor water park. The water park was essential because the weather in the Midwest can be so fickle. We...

Beyond the greatest place in the world! It's just wonderful. There's so much to do and see. Great location right near cedar point, and they offer discount tickets and earthy entry.
