The rooms were clean. The waterpark was fun. We went with a group of 9 Adults and 25 kids. Kids range in age of 6 to 17. I would suggest getting the fun park $25 extra ticket. The kids spent a lot of time there. My only issue is that 3 couples that didn't get the suite got put in...

Sounds like a blast! Thank you so much for taking a moment to share your thoughts. I'm sorry to hear that a couple rooms were located in the other building. Unfortunately there are certain room styles that are only located in specific areas of the resort. I hope that they were able to partake in all the fun still! I...

This is our 13th year as a family staying in February at the Kalahari and overall everything continues to be fine. Food and drink on the resort is pricey. February is traditionally very cold in Wisconsin. No indoor smoking area. Can’t smoke in rooms. If you are a smoker and go in the winter be prepared to put your coat...

Booking: Tried to book under a block of rooms for a conference we were attending and we were told that none were available, only the "Normal" rate was open. I called again and another representative told me that they had several open. I was pretty frustrated. Hotel: When we arrived, it was a zoo getting checked in, the reception staff...

Excellent Service by staff, very friendly and courteous. Room was very clean. The buffet meals in the restaurants were excellent with great choices! The meeting rooms were spacious and soundproofed so as to prevent interference with other meetings in adjacent rooms. Even though I was at the Kalahari for a conference, I can't think of a better place to bring...

Clean rooms, not the largest indoor waterpark I've ever been, too but not the smallest either. Small kids enjoyed it. Long walk from Sands building to the waterpark, but we were aware of it before we reserved our rooms. Stayed in the combination suite, nice size, kinda spendy on the weekends but they do have nice amenities. Food was good,...

Thank you so for taking a moment to review us! As America's Largest Indoor Waterparks (only second to our other property in Ohio), I'm discouraged to hear you didn't find the waterpark that huge, BUT nonetheless, thrilled everyone had a blast! I know we just loved having you. Looking forward to seeing everyone again soon. Thanks so much for your...

I've been going to the Dells every few years for quite a long time. Having stayed at over a half dozen hotels and resorts in the Dells, I was really excited to stay at the Kalahari - it is the premium resort after all, right? I was hesitant to book a stay for my wife and I at the Kalahari...

As a regular to the Dells, I'm very happy to hear that you gave us try. However, I am very disappointed to hear that we did not live up to your expectations. Unfortunately, there is a very small portion of our rooms that don't have the best view. I"m am sorry this impacted the experience. I can understand how this...

Came to Kalahari on a Thursday in February and enjoyed the indoor waterpark. After that decided to get dressed and go eat. Went to Brew Pub and food/service was great. We were going to wrap up the night and go bowling. Arrived there at 10:30 pm and was told they just sold their last one. I informed her they were...

We have been going to the Kalahari at least once a year for seven years now. In that time, my family has grown from one child to three and I have never been disappointed. No matter what ages my children have been, there has been something for them to do. We go in the winter so we get AMAZING pricing...
