Editor’s Review of Castaway Bay Resort

The tropical-themed Castaway Bay belongs to the Cedar Point amusement park family of properties. While it is not adjacent and within walking distance to the world-famous park (like some of the other Cedar Point resorts), Castaway Bay is just a five-minute drive down the road and features several huge draws for families, including an indoor water park, giant arcade and suites that sleep six. Plus, all Castaway Bay guests get to enter Cedar Point amusement park a full hour before the general public.

Room configurations at Castaway Bay range from a room with a queen bed and sofa bed that sleeps three to a two-room suite with a king and two queen beds that sleeps six. Some rooms feature bunk beds that kids love; all rooms have at least one television, as well as a microwave, mini-refrigerator and coffeemaker. Most rooms have a deck or balcony; connecting rooms for large families or groups are on request, subject to availability. The Castaway Bay website does a great job showing all of the different room floor plans, and lists maximum capacity and included amenities for each configuration.

Castaway Bay is the perfect getaway when trying to hang on before Spring/Summer. They have plenty of children's activities--bedtime stories, games, crafts, dances, meet/greet and even Karokee with the Peanuts gang. Karokee was ... more
