Loved the Caribbean Cove Water Park A review of Caribbean Cove Hotel & Conference Center
We visited the Caribbean Cove in Indianapolis on a Sunday/Monday, Feb. 27th-28th. We booked a suite for the same price that a double room would cost on the weekend. Our suite had a king bed, queen sleeper sofa in the living room, huge restroom with jettted tub-although you may not use that, microwave, mini-fridge and enough space for a relaxing stay for a family of 4. We are waterpark savvy- having visited the Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky, Ohio and the Wilderness on the Lake in the Wisconsin Dells. That being said, you have to pack a "waterpark" bag where you pack dry clothes to travel home in and plastic bags to put your wet suits in. (If you are like me, you also pack fairly light for a waterpark weekend anyway.) Obviously you will not find the same amenities as those waterparks in the Dells, although we enjoyed the fact that the "Cove" had the 3 big waterslides, 1 where you use a raft or innertubes, and 2 body slides. It also had a Lazy River, a fun play pool for younger children, and a basketball area where my 2 sons had a blast. We also enjoyed the Holidome pool which is located through the double doors- it was quiet and rather empty-especially on a Monday morning. The staff at the Holiday Inn Select was helpful and friendly and we had no problems with our room service breakfast order. We did walk across the parking lot and had dinner at the Texas Roadhouse which I would suggest with a family of boys!! Again, I feel that the timing of our visit made the biggest difference-low crowds-lots of lifeguard attention and nice surroundings made for a relaxing, long weekend where I felt very safe and had a great time with my family. As a Hoosier and one who loves Indianapolis, I am thrilled to have a waterpark option in this great city!!!
