Jack U, Thanks for stopping by and we appreciate the 5 stars! We realize that being adjacent to the waterpark can lead folks to not believe the quality, affordability and beautiful Gulf view we offer. So glad to hear you share your experience. Thanks again...More

Great place for kids and adults alike. The river was fantastic. My only concern was that it was really cold inside but that was likely because it was very cold outside. The water is not heated.

We stayed at the resort and it included access to water park indoor and out door. As long as both areas are open you will have access to them.
