This hotel was really great especially for those with kids. There is an indoor and outdoor water park on site (admission is included with your room stay) as well as an indoor amusement center which has rides, games, miniature golf, laser tag and even a bowling alley. Our family of five had a great time! The rooms were very clean...

Thank you for all of the kind words. Besides the waterparks, I am glad you were able to make a stroll over and check out the Indoor Theme Park. I hope you were able to play a few games of bowling over there. I'm glad the rooms were nice and big for you. And I am so happy that our...

The Kalahari really sets itself apart from, other hotels I have stayed at, first and foremost the waterpark is definitely the crowd pleaser, but when you add things such as a day spa, arcade, a mini indoor theme park with mini golf, and yes even a climbing wall, well you get an unforgettable and quite frankly legendary resort hotel. I...

Arrived on a Thursday, left on a Saturday. Definitely recommend coming during the week. You can clearly see how much busier it is on Saturday. Both indoor & outdoor water parks are great. My kids are 10 & 12 and there were enough slides to keep them happy. There are slides for every bravery level. One night we ate dinner...

We love this resort. We stayed several years ago, and it's only gotten better. Found the prices at the restaurants to be reasonable. Everything is so convenient. Really don't need to go out for much, because there's so much to do right there. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly. Will be back again.

Just wrapped up another visit to the Kalahari. Our family has visited every year since they opened. We've noticed a decline in service over the years. We normally stay Sunday through Wednesday; but, this year our trip fell over a Saturday night. We won't do that again. The pools were too crowded for us. The hotel was completely full during...
