I recently stayed at Kalahari Resort in WI Dells on a Thursday night, when I was visiting the Dells for a mini fall getaway! I had stayed at Kalahari and experienced their indoor water park way back when this resort was about 2 weeks old in about the year 2000, but I had not been there since then. I visit...

I stayed in the Sands building of the resort while I attended a two day conference. The room was neat, clean, well supplied and it smelled good. There was ample room to move around in the room and the coffee maker, hair dryer both worked. The area above the bathroom sink was very brightly lit, which is what I expect....

We are a middle-aged couple who stopped off in the Dells for a 1 night stay on a recent trip. We knew it was off season and we had no children with us however we needed to get a room for the night. I always wanted to see Kalahari and it had a very nice indoor waterpark. The room was...

Had a great stay! The resort theme is entertaining but aesthetic, the design is pleasing and the layout is convenient. Great for entertaining young children with a wide variety of things to see and do. The resort centers are clean and spacious as are the rooms. The staff is attentive and friendly. Overall an excellent experience!

Have stayed multiple times in regular rooms and in the Nyumba houses. More expensive than other area options by a bit, but clean and well-staffed. Facility is well-kept and updated. Kids from ages 2-12 had a great time recently with a family weekend.

After arriving home from out stay at the end of June/beginning of July of this year, we were offered a complimentary room upgrade to a Royal African Queen Suite for our next visit, whenever that would happen to be. I was told that we wouldn’t have to do anything to claim this upgrade, and that a note would be added...

Thank you for visiting again! While I'm glad to hear that overall you had a pleasant time, I am discouraged to hear about the lack of follow through with the upgrade. I can certainly understand your frustration with this. I will be addressing this with my team as to how we distribute these to our guests. Typically we send a...

the best thing about the resort was that even though it was a busy weekend and the water park was quite crowded, the hotel area near the rooms were quite peaceful. the hustle bustle of the water park didnt really affect the hotel rooms. Basic equipments like microwave and fridge were a part of the room. they believe in recycle...

Great? Room size. Even the most economical room is nicely sized. The bathrooms are pretty standard but the beds and that area has room for the kids to move around and there is a small balcony. Rooms are clean and pretty updated. Could they use a little touch up? Sure but they ate still really nice. Most important part the...
