Older resort

The water park was pretty good, but the hotel is older and in the process of renovations. Most of the rooms close to the water park were under construction still, so we had to walk really far to our room. Ask for a room in the 4000s or overlooking the water park.

Good for kids

Choose this for a weekend get away fory wife and I. Found out we would have saved $40 if I hadn't planned ahead and just bought tickets on arrival. Also, this "package" does NOT include water park tickets, so plan on additional cost there as well.

it is what it is.

WATERPARK WAS AWESOME!!!!!! The rest of the hotel was not. The room was dark, dirty and somewhat depressing. The game room was lackluster. Some machines actually worked though! At least the hallway leading to it didn't smell of urine.(can you feel the sarcasm?)The breakfast buffet was surprisingly decent. The manager on duty was very pleasant(no sarcasm this time) and helped us with some of our issues during our stay without acting like a robot. I never leave poor reviews, I just feel the need to list pros & cons so maybe they may make some minor improvements. Again the water park area was worth all of the other issues we experienced during our stay.

First impression was not good. After that, it was good.

First of all, we were given a key to a room that was occupied! We arrived at 1am and obviously the family was sleeping! Not cool. Secondly, we had only 4 towels and 2 wash cloths. We had 6 beds in our room for our family of 6! And then one bar of soap to share between the sink and tub. Really? We chose this hotel because we needed 6 beds and that is hard to find! You met our needs but the first impression was not good.

Our Family Trip

This was the 3 destination of a 10 day trip our family took in July 2014. I wanted to relax and allow the children to enjoy themselves at the water park and the following day we visited Cedar Point. It was an enjoyable 2 days at Maui Sands the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the continental breakfast was the best I have ever seen at a reasonably priced hotel. The rooms were adequate in size and clean but the only problem I had, (which I don't think the hotel could do too much about) with the amount of children at the resort it was a little loud in the hallways, but by 9 o'clock at night it did quiet down. I would definitely go back as everyone had a great time.

Not worth the price

My sister and I took our kids to Cedar Point and wanted a room we could all stay in with 2 adults and 4 kids. This is the only one that showed up so we booked it but without the water passes and it was over $150. I've stayed here before but it was much nicer last time. It was totally not worth it, we could have gotten 2 adjoining rooms for the same price at a nicer hotel although the kids did like the bunk beds which was it's saving grace. The bunk beds had a flat sheet on the bottom but then no sheet on top and just a rough comforter to sleep under. The linens on the king size bed were also minimal and the comforter had red stains on it. The bed was hard and uncomfortable but we got there at Midnight so I still slept well. We wanted to call to get a wake up call but the phone didn't work, I tried different jacks without success. The clock also wasn't really working but I think we fixed it but set our phone alarms just in case. The one bright point was the free breakfast. When we went down about 15 minutes before it ended there was basically no food, but they brought out a bunch of fresh and delicious food. They helped with every request we had and the food was good. They had an express check out which I was hoping to talk to someone about it but no one was at the front desk so I just dropped off the key. PROS: close to Cedar Point, it had the room qualities we needed in that it had 2 bunk beds in a different room and a King size with a good buffet breakfast and the Shampoo & Conditioner were nice. CONS: Too expensive for the quality, hard beds, bad linens, phone didn't work

Good deal for the price.

Compared to the other water park hotels in the area, Maui Sands is a good deal for the price. You get what you pay for (which is savings of $75/ night) The lifeguards are good, some are excellent as they interact with the guests in a fun manner. My 9 and 6 year old had a great time.

Fun family weekend

We wanted to go somewhere to do some water activities in which our whole family could participate and have equal amount of fun and Maui Sands accommodated all of that! Our kids ages range from 5 to 15 so this could be challenging. Maui Sands provides a wide variety of indoor water activities that appeal to the whole family: the very young kids, with a pool that is 8 inches at its highest depth; elementary aged kids, with a jungle gym area with various slides and water spouts; and teens and adults with fantastic high speed water slides that provide an adrenaline rush. Definitely worth checking out! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. We were very pleased with the included breakfast buffet. Pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy were all delicious. Plus they provided a variety of cold cereal from which to choose as well. Plus the seating area was very accommodating too, which is rare in most hotels. The one item that most attracted us to Maui Sands in the inquiry process was its price compared to other indoor water parks in the area. It was very affordable for our family of six, specifically a suite that provided a separate area for kids and parents. We have already talked about when we can come back! Great place!
