Verified Guest from South Haven Michigan, US rated Caribbean Cove Hotel & Conference Center 10 out of 10 on April 08, 2011
"The waterpark would have been perfectly enjoyable if there was some sort of security that only the parents could walk out with the kids they brought. Maybe numbered arm bands? That way mom and dad could make full use of the two wonderful hot tubs on either side of the cave like settings."
Rachel from Indianapolis, IN US rated Caribbean Cove Hotel & Conference Center 8 out of 10 on May 14, 2006
