This is by far the best water park we have been to. They have restaurants, gift shops and Game Center all in the same building. They also give you a pass to FitNation across the street. They have a magician Micheal Dennis that is amazing. Plenty of activities and a very friendly staff. We will be visiting again!

The room was nice. It could use a little updating. The staff overall were friendly and well informed. Not enough soap and tissue initially. Once I complained they gave me more than enough. I stayed by the elevator. A little distracting but ok. It was nice to walk out of my room and in just a few short steps I... More

Pros: the staff was nice. The room was large. Check in took awhile but was well staffed. Cons: Unfortunately for us our 11 and 13 year old boys didn't enjoy the waterpark. The wave pool looked much bigger in the photo and the kids are used to enjoying the hot tub at WI waterparks. We couldn't find any place to... More

We had a fantastic stay at Keylime cove. The facilities were clean, themed to feel relaxed and on island time. Rooms were spacious and well kept. Staff super friendly and life guards were attentive and focused on job at hand. Outstanding all around. We will be back! Thank you!

We brought our 4 year old kids for their birthday. The check-in was easy and there is a real resort feeling. You can link your credit card to your wristband so you don't have to carry a wallet around the whole time.

We stay here about once a year. This trip was fantastic! Easy check in and check out. Room was great. Had a blast at the water park with kids ranging in age from 10 years to 18 months.

I could have spent a few days here. Everyone was incredibly friendly and there were so many things to do! You really never have to leave the property. The waterpark was clean and well managed.

A great place for a family to go with kids and find everything under one roof. Great restaurants, activities and water park. I was surprised at the size of the room. It felt like an easy vacation close to home. The pool staff is very attentive to safety.

I travel a lot so the first thing I do when I get in a room is check for bed bugs. Found one in the sofa sleeper along with droppings/blood so we immediately called downstairs and they were quick to change our room, which was appreciated.
