Schlitterbahn Beach Resort and Waterpark

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Orbitz did not specify that the water park was closed during our stay. We found out about it when we checked in at the hotel. One of the reasons we booked the hotel was because it included access to the water park.

Expensive and not worth the money. Very disappointed in how treated as guests.

My family and I had great vacation here. The rooms were clean, staff was nice, we had a great time. I recommend staying here only if you love water because the price is high. Over $800 for three nights for three people, but I guess vacations are expensive. I also wish they had a complimentary breakfast. Over all we had a blast and my daughter loved it.

It was very convenient to be able to access the water park and the beach with such ease. The only things I dislike about the hotel is the small restroom area and nowhere to hang wet beach towels and swimsuits. Other than that, our room and our stay there was excellent.

The room was clean but it had a weird smell. The food was disgusting a piece of bread instead of toasted, it was warmed in the micro. The coffee was not good either. There was no room service at night, so we had to walk to a stripes to get a hot dog, That was the closest food nearby. The park was closed and the kids were very disappointed.

Very nice! Friendly staff. Resort was well maintained!

We had a great time with the family, there is something for everyone to do. I wish the waterpark would have been open morethan just on the weekends.

Room was ok, bathroom is too small; hotel location is very convenient.

This was an end of summer trip and we couldnt have picked a better place to go. The rooms were excellent and the water park is by far the best in the state of Texas. My girls had a blast and even my girlfriend (who never rides any rides or slides) rode almost every ride there. I would recommend this park and hotel to anyone looking for a fun getaway.

Perfect and well located, great place to relax and have fun.

Ac wasnt working right. The bar at the pool said it was going to be open but it wasnt and plus theres not even a indoor pool like it said. Overall paid too much and didnt get the service i espected!

The A/C wasnt working right. No indoor pool like it said on the hotel description and plus there wasnt really that much to do. I think i paid a lot for the service they didnt have. I dont recommend it!

Very friendly staff. Nice clean rooms, they were very hospitable.

Super nice staff; got to check in early; waterpark was great for me and my little family. A little pricey in food but other than that great experience will definitely be back!

It was a good getaway for the weekend!! It was vertyrelaxing..

the hotel it was so nice, we like maybe came back next next on summer time my daugther enjoy the waves swimming pool

We recently stayed at the resort. At check in, we were informed that an additional 200 plus charge was necessary for "stay and play". I explained that the reservation had cleared that before we made the reservation. We were charged but later the desk clerk said it was "false advertising" on the reservation companies site and they refunded the money. My sons were anxious to get to the water park, so have getting into our room, we hit the water park. It sounds heated in the review but actually there is only one 3 ft deep small pool that is heated with a fountain in the middle and a bar. The park has two slides and a river. The water was cold. The slides were minimal and the river was ok. But, it was not enough for my middle school kids. They went down the slide a few times and around the river a few times and they were done. The slides are really lame compared to other slides at their outdoor parks. So, after about an hour, they were done and that was it for the water park which made the stay very expensive. The best part was that the hotel is on the beach and you can walk out the back and there is the gulf. The food is average at best..nothing special. We had to leave a day early because our dog sitter was hospitalized and our dogs were alone. We explained to desk clerk and she said that the company we made the reservation with would make the refund and that they understood. By the time I got in the car and called because of earlier experience with desk clerk, the hotel had changed it's mind and we were charged for the last night, even though we left before 11am. I would not choose to stay here again. A lot of buck for not much bang.
