(Another) Giveaway: Win an Overnight Stay at Kalahari Resorts!!

As Emily mentioned last week , we got to take our families to the fabulous Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, Ohio last weekend.  Emily showcased some of the resort’s features and then gave away a night’s stay, and now it’s my turn to do the same! (Em’s already picked a winner for her giveaway, so check your email!)

I truly loved everything about Kalahari, but what stood out all around was the exceptional customer service we received there. The attendant who helped us when we first pulled up in our vehicle and helped us get our bags in the hotel, waited for us while we checked in, and then made sure we (and our luggage) got safely to our room – was amazing. His name was Jacob, and he didn’t know I was a blogger who was going to write about the stay. He just treated us like any regular guest – and he was perhaps the nicest and most helpful hotel employee I have ever encountered anywhere. A++ on the customer service! So, that was a great way to start out our stay, and everyone else at the resort who helped us over the weekend was also absolutely fabulous. I couldn’t say more about the great service!

My next favorite part of our stay was the FOOD! And this goes hand-in-hand with customer service as well. Kalahari put out an amazing breakfast spread for all the bloggers and their families. Everything looked scrumptious! Trouble is, I couldn’t eat most of it because I recently found out I am allergic to wheat. I had let them know about my allergy before my arrival, so I knew I’d have something to eat, but I was totally blown away when they brought me out a giant plate of delicious, amazing food just for me – all gluten-free! (Pictured above is my actual plate!) It was SOOOO GOOOD! I ate as much as I possibly could and I was so grateful that they accommodated me – and then some!

Ok, so next up – the water park! Emily already told you how amazing the water park is. It is awesome! And ginormous. And AWESOME!! My kids had a blast, and so did my hubby and I. Check him out catching some waves on the Flow Rider – he did great!


Another great feature Kalahari has is a giant arcade. They have every game you could ever want to play, including my fave – SKEE BALL! They also have some extra -fun stuff like neon black light mini-golf and mini-bowling.


Mini-golf in the dark was not any of our strong suits…but it was fun!

We had a BLAST on the bowling!
Even though Joshua beat us all really badly!


We were all sad to leave Kalahari when the weekend was over. And we all can’t WAIT to go back! My children are just dee-eye-ing to go back! And I want to go in the warm weather when we can check out all the resort has to offer outdoors  - including a zoo and tons out outdoor water play!
