We stayed 4 nights in the Nomad room them upgraded our last night to the African Queen Suite. Both rooms were comfortable large and clean upon arrival. Our family of 6 were all quite comfortable. Rooms were quiet and noise from other guest were never a problem. Kids were active all day long. Water parks were clean and never overcrowded....

Got upgraded at checkin, which was unexpected. Great suite with two rooms, one for parents and one for kids, along with a small living room area for games and TV. Hallways are always quiet, which is rare for a busy hotel of this size. Always something to do for the whole family, with indoor and outdoor water parks as well...

Having been to other water park resorts, I was uncertain whether the water park area would be appropriate for my teenage kids (12 & 15) or more geared toward younger kids. My daughter (12) experienced both the indoor and outdoor parks and loved them. Surprisingly, my 15-year-old son had just as much fun. I am a big fan of the...

This was our second visit to Kalahari in the past 2 years and our kids absolutely loved it. The staff are attentive, friendly and helpful everywhere in the resort, the food in the restaurants was great, and the waterpark was well run, clean and a lot of fun for everyone. My only complaint is about the maintenance of the rooms....

Hi Jon. I am glad to hear that the service, staff, and the amenities of our Resort was all very nice for you. I am sorry to hear about the condition of your room.

Staff was beyond helpful and went out of their way to make our stay an amazing experience. It was better than we could've imagined. The villa itself had so much to offer to our group.

You are paying top resort fees, with out top resort service. I really do not understand the infatuation with the Dells. If I pay $400 a night, I expect full service. That being said, this hotel is the best out if these rinky dinky hotels. But that's not saying much.

This was our third stay at the Kalahari resort. It was just as disappointing as the first. The pool areas were dirty, the prices for snacks were outrageous.
