Last weekend was our third trip to GWL in the Poconos. We always have loads of fun, but the only thing included in your room rate is the room and the water park....NOTHING else. Every other activity has a fee associated with it. They have several options on site for eating. But get this, the buffet charge per person...doesn't include the drink! They charge for that separately. Adult dinner was $21.99 and they can't include a 10 cent fountain drink with that? We only ate breakfast in the restaurant once and for 2 adults and 2 children, the bill was $61. We typically bring as much food as we can cram in the car. There are microwaves and refrigerators in the guest rooms. We also go off site for dinner.
I have to say that the staff is super and the lifeguards are so attentive! The rooms are spotless and large for hotel rooms. The queen sized beds were super comfy. If you are staying in one of the special rooms like the Wolf Den, the bunk beds have a mattress covered in vinyl. The kids say they aren't comfy at all and you get sweaty laying on them.
You will have a great time and so will your kids, but be prepared to pay for it. Magiquest, the 3D theater, mini-golf, bowling ally, new ropes course (which is amazing!), etc. all cost extra. By the time we left after 3 days and 2 nights, I think we had spent nearly $1000.00. I haven't gotten the bill yet and am dreading it.
Oh and the wifi is dreadful. I had to do a bit of work each morning and couldn't even hardly get on the internet, much less my work email, until I used my i-phone as a hot spot.
