If you are just looking for something to do with small kids for a day this is fine. If you are hoping for a relaxing weekend at a nice hotel while kids play this is not it. Rooms were not as depicted on website, linens were terrible and microwave/mini fridge was dirty and stained. We had a "suite" with bunk...

Extremely disappointed with the service. We spent all day in the water park to come back to our rooms almost 5pm and find out that room had not been cleaned and towels not changed. Called the front desk and was informed that the rooms that will have guests checking in have priority. In summary, once you are staying at the...

Very fun for my 7yr and 1yr old the park have a lot of stuff to do. The arcade was nice. Affordable and the room was clean and the beds were soft. Nice place to go with Cedar point right next to it and many hotels have the pass to get in early

The experience was great. My grandson loves it here. He is only 4 so it is good for the little ones. The buffet is worth the price especially since I'm not a big buffet fan. Lots of activities for the children. Snoopy walks around children faces are priceless. Will be back again for Halloween, if not sooner.

Although I cannot comment on the hotel end because we stayed elsewhere, we visited the water park with a day pass. The park was small, but easy to navigate with plenty enough fun things to do for a young family. Our only complaint is both the water and the air in the park area was rather cold, and that makes...

Took my family to Castaway Bay for the weekend. 2 children, 2 spouses and 4 grandchildren. We had a great time. 2 starfish rooms and a Tarpoon Bay Suite. We met Peanuts characters, decorated cookies, participated in Karaoke, and attended a dance party. Not to mention the arcade and the waterpark. The grandkids, all 5 and under, had a great...

Overall we had a really nice stay! I had booked the Tarpoon Bay suite here on tripadvisor. We arrived around noon and I was expecting to check in that early but they went ahead and let us into our room which was located right across from the entrance to the water park (room 123) and the arcade. I was expecting...

I stayed here with my family while visiting Cedar Point. The location is great, literally a five minute drive from Cedar Point. The biggest upside other than the location is the indoor Waterpark which is fantastic. It makes the evenings full after a long day at the park. The rooms and other facilities are clean, if a bit dated. The...

We just completed a one night stay at Castaway Bay and my family and I had a great time! We were looking for a place that was smaller and cheaper than your Great Wolf Lodges and Kalaharis and this place fit the bill. The water park was very entertaining for our 3.5 year old and 20 month old, with the...
