Our stay was very pleasant and fun. The staff was friendly and attentive. The hotel was beautiful and clean. We loved the penguins and the tropical museum and especially enjoyed the spacious pool and hot-tub to relax in after a busy day. My only complaint was that half of the attractions were closed even over the weekend in May and the pictures hanging in our room had obvious water damage.

I was disappointed with service and cleanliness of hotel and rooms. At first it looks cleans but upon removing the covers of the bed there was stains on sheets not very appealing. Also carpets in rooms needed to be vacuumed. While staff service tried to be pleasant their service was poor. Took over an hour to get extra towels to the room on top of that are room key had to be replaced every time we left our rooms. Mind you that walking back and forth in this large hotel gets trying after the 3 time. I only liked it for the family atmosphere and that it is away from all the noise. But way over priced for what we went through.

Starbucks on property within hotel, walking distance to attractions. Room was very clean.

Option for free parking. Attractions available. Lots to do.

Very nice property especially if your doing things at moody gardens, you get a discount on tickets. Pool was very pretty.

Fun place to stay! There is alot of things to do. Enjoyed every minute of my stay. Great service too.

Pool area was poorly supervised. The supervisor/property manager on duty(who was easily identified in his suit who browsed the pool perimeter) did nothing to eliminate the chaos in the gated pool area as well as the entry/hangout area where several families brought Bluetooth speakers blasting music of different genres. We are there to relax, what is peaceful to some is not peaceful to all. I felt as if I was in a low budget club in Mexico at 2am.

Room was very clean; Heated outdoor pool was so fun! We also enjoyed the Pizza shop & the spring break activities for kids.

Property is always so clean and staff are always so friendly. also this property puts in alot of effort to entertain the kids.

Check in was great. The man helping us was so nice and made us excited for our stay. Unfortunately, we had a bad experience at dinner. We ate at the bar with our kids since we had a late night after visiting Iceland and other holiday fun on the grounds. We waited an hour for our kids to get their food. My burger that was supposed to be medium rare was burnt and well done. The waitress didn’t seem to care about anything and was no where to be found. I expected much more from a nice resort. I don’t think we’ll be back because of that dining experience.
