6/10 Good

Rooms are not that great
It nice because it was connected to the water park. Beyond that the sink drain was extremely slow, the bathtub drain was stuck shut and the protection cover to the AC/Heater kept popping off. That is a triple threat when you have a dog and 2 young kids in the room. Disappointing for how much we paid for the room.

Not a great stay
Sad to say our stay wasnt great. We used to love going there. The hotel seems to have suffered through the pandemic. Broken hot tub, broken games in the arcade, lifegaurds who spent time on their phones instead of watching the pool, call to front desk took forever to get through, no water in the hotel at one point, slippery sidewalks, etc. We still managed to have fun but we probably wont be back.
