This is a great water park with some awesome slides but I just spent the entire morning unable to ride them because there was a huge tube shortage. They either need more tubes or a system to rotate the tubes amongst guests ...

Not good for teens 12-16 there isn't much to do for them my kids got yelled at for sitting in the lobby at night but they weren't annoying anyone or being disruptive. They also cant go to the spa or hot tub.

I have never met this guy before, but he's an amazing magician who not only floored my kids with tricks, but us as well. Key lime is a fun place and this guy is a really great addition. I was truly impressed & it set our trip up perfectly. Kudos to key lime for selecting such an outstanding guy.

We took a mid week girls trip. My sister, myself, mom, and 2 children ages 1 and 2. The staff here is AMAZING! From our waitresses, Gina and Christine to Anna, a worker at the pizza place. The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The resort and rooms were clean. The food was delicious. The water...

We went to Keylime Cove during the week because we heard it can get crowded over the weekend. It was much less crowded on Wednesday but more crowded on Thursday. The only bad thing about going on a week day is not all the restaurants were open. The one restaurant we ate at was high priced with mediocre food. It...

We stayed here for four nights. I didn't like the room- it felt like it was falling apart and the heater had a mind of its own and ran like a freight train. The beds were comfortable though and there is a small fridge. Towels were old, thin and rough. Fixtures in the sink and shower barely worked. The water...

This was our first time staying at Key Lime Cove. We went with another couple that had stayed there before. We waited about 30-40 minutes to check in. We wanted adjoining rooms but that was an upcharge. We get to pool and they were short on life jackets for the little ones. Get to the top of the kids slide...

I brought my son and his friend for a last minute overnight trip. They had a blast playing in the waterpark, arcade and mini golf. As a returning guest (I've been here at least 4-5 times in 2 years), a rewards program would be nice...like offering returning guests upgrades to larger rooms when available. This recent visit, there were suites...

Love the water park but our room was gross!!! Long black hairs everywhere, dried boogers on the bed skirt and an ominous stain on the rug! For this price, I expected a much cleaner place to sleep! I'm very disappointed!

“The further away you are from the elevator and water park the quieter your room will be.”

“Any room is nice. but they do not have microwave which I felt should since its kid friendly and they need warm milk!”

“our room was opposite of the lobby / waterpark - so probably quieter. We selected the mangrove suite option to have a bit more space.”
