    Loved the pools and hot tubs!! All the people were so accomodating. We are going to bring family back!

    Pillows were amazingly uncomfortable!! That is our only complaint. Will definitely come back (with my pillows) again! Walking around the pool area (where the boat is) was hard on the feet. Like walking on glass. Would have loved a microwave instead of a safe.

    Pools were great. Room was good.

    Weak WiFi’s could connect in lobby but not in room. Trouble with TV first night. No free breakfast.

    We really enjoyed that it was connected to Spectators. The arcade was also fun. We enjoyed hanging around and relaxing and being close to Prairie Meadows.

    We believe that there shouldn't be kids at the pool bar. The main reason we booked at Adventureland in was to use the swim up bar. It was packed with kids so we couldn't use it. Very disappointing.
