My family and I have stayed at almost all the indoor water park hotels in WI Dells, and this was our first time at Kalahari. I have to say, I think Kalahari has all the other hotels beat. We booked a room on a whim because I was offered an email deal for a 2 bedroom suite. The room they...

We decided to take a mini winter vacation with our kids last minute. We looked at a number of resorts and with all the positive reviews and military deals Kalahari was the resort for us. After the long drive and restless kids we were finally here. We walked in and were instantly impressed by the entrance of the resort. When...

We got a fantastic email deal and decided for a quick Christmas vacation. We stay there in the summer but wanted to try a winter holiday. The decor is Christmas classy. Lights done just right and soft Christmas tunes in the lobby area. We will definitely return next year at his time.

Probably our 8th visit in past 5 years. Like many places the staff makes the difference. Everyone I spoke to from the call center, front desk, water park staff, and housekeeping was friendly and competent. The front desk folks worked with us to get rooms next to our friends. Actually this started as a family trip and ended up with...

Kalahari is what it would consider the best of what Wisconsin Dells has to offer when it comes to water park/hotel resorts. It's huge,no really! It caters to many different options like restaurants, Double Cut Grill is superb,pricy but worth it, cafe, Sweet Shack candy shop (gourmet chocolates, yum!), a bar,a pretty big arcade with its own Ferris Wheel!

My favorite thing about Kalahari resort is that its not overcrowded! We felt appreciated as customers that stays in the resort, after recent visit to terrible Mt.Olymus-Kalahari brings back faith for indoor family fun in winter season :) Its clean, and thers not too many outsiders. KIds (7 years olad and two 15 yr old) had tons of fun and...

For the cost of the room, the three of us got admission to the water part and amusement park. This made this an amazing value. We stumbled in bundled up in heavy winter wear and ended up spending four days in swims suits and summer wear. That was a treat inn itself. We loved the indoor water park. It had...

I have stayed here numerous times for conventions and have had the kids join me a couple of times. They always enjoy themselves and are never bored. Plenty to do between the huge waterpark and the adventure area that has go-carts, rope climbing, bowling, arcade, simulators, you name it.

Went here over Thanksgiving weekend. It was a nice waterpark, and the rooms were nice. The only thing is, there is only one main water park for you to go to, which can get boring after one day. This place is for a more younger crowd too. I also thought this place was a bit over priced as well...

We were excited to have you visit over Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you didn't find more to do! We also have the 100,000 sq ft Theme Park too, which is a ton of fun! Likewise, with the recent addition of the Mud Hut Swim-up Bar, hopefully you were able to relax a bit too. Did you try...

This was our first vacation all year and I have to say we're glad we choose the Kalahari. The rooms we rented were suites and they were big enough for 4 kids and 2 adults and then some. We bought the Water park and Amusement passes and stayed for 3 days. There is so much to do and see here...
