We took our 2 kids (4.5 & 2 yr old) to the Dells for a 4 night family trip in June 2014. So much to do at our hotel we only left to eat out and pick up some stuff for the room. One nice thing was they don't fill up your fridge with over priced stuff, so you have a whole fridge to keep snacks and food in. We bought breakfast food and just ate in the room, which was just easy!
The kids had a great time at all the waterparks and their was enough stuff to do for the adults too have fun.
We had a suite with 2 beds and the little dividing wall was more of a joke than anything, luckily our kids were so tired that it didn't matter. But no privacy in the room at all, our bathroom door didn't even lock. We only ate dinner at the buffet one night and it was good, nothing special but it was easy which we needed that first night.
We also took the Ducks Tour, it was a nice tour make sure you use the coupons the hotel gives you.

The parks and hotel was great there was so much to see and do. The water parks were great the only one that was to warm and uncomfortable was the Indoor at Klondike Kavern We were there June 23 and 24th 2014. When you get here check in for room is not till 4pm but they give you your water pass at check in we got there at 11am and they text you when your room is ready. Our room overlooked the outside water park at Wildwest. and was great it sleeps six and you get all the water passes include, the only thing that needs replacement was the outside chairs on the balcony. The restaurants were easy to get to and they have shuttles to get you around. The best restaurant was Sarento's Italian. The food was great we ate there both nights of our stay. The Wilderness did not gouge you for food and drinks which was a pleasant surprise the other place that had a great menu was at the Indoor Lost Waterdome was Survivor's Bar & Grill. The best indoor pool was the wave pool at the Lost Waterdome and the best outdoor was Lost World. Five star Rating all around. Did not do roomservice so I'm not rating it

Room Tip: If you want to overlook the outside pools just ask when booking

I'd give the hotel room a 2.5 rating and the service a 1 but the water parks bring up the scoring....they are great and the pool area comfortable and slides were good. I don't know where they get some of their staff but they certainly didn't understand americans and our culture. It almost seemed that they consisted of exchange students from Europe. I have nothing against foreigners but I have something against bad customer service.

One day my wife and I stepped up to the pool bar and the girl never acknowledged us and we stood there for 15 minutes while she took care of new people stepping up. Funny.....at a different pool bar the next day the bartender asked the guy next to me what he wanted and this guy told him to serve the guy across first.....he was there waiting before him. In talking to the guy he mentioned the same thing that happened to him that happened to me the day before....just poor bartender service. They do not seemed to be trained or qualified at all.

Overall, it still was a good experience and would stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get a high floor.....it was quiet.

Came up for a family vacation and anniversary amd I couldnt have asked for a better stay. My son had blast, I had a blast, and my wife had a blast. There are so many different waterparks and everything for every age range. Yes it is a huge place but it has so much to offer. Check in was easy and smooth and the guy who helped us with is was very pleasant and did a great job explaining everything the place had to offer. We loved it so much we plan on coming back again before years end

Family of 4 on vacation, spent 3 days here. By far the nicest place in the Dells. Clean pool and friendly staff. Plenty of life guards on duty. We would highly recommend staying here! We were able to check in before 4:00. We went durning the week which was a good idea, no lines for rides so we had plenty of time to go on the slides we wanted to.

Stayed: June 2014

Stopped by here with grandson on the way home from where he lives. Stopped here to let him play in the waterpark and relax: breaking up the trip back home. Front staff was quick on check-in and friendly unlike other resorts in the area. Romms a little pricey: but got a great, clean room. Another fine stay here. Will return in the future.

Room Tip: Room was on ground floor by one of the pools.
