I took my two small children to castaway bay for a little fun getaway and I was very disappointed with the cleanliness of our room. There was hair in the tub, yellow stuff on the walls and doors, sticky red stuff on the comforter, the TV didn’t work and the alarm clock in our room went off at 6am.

The water park was great for our 6 year old, however it was ridiculous they had to wear life jackets in the pools that are 3-4 ft deep. Anyone under 52” must wear life jacket. Also, the beds in the room are very uncomfortable and the noise level is very high even in your hotel room. We stayed on a not busy day so I can’t even imagine what the noise level in your hotel room would be on a busy day.
