Visiting Key Lime Cove

Disclosure: My family and I received a complimentary stay as part of a blogger promotion. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and completely my own.



Have you heard of Key Lime Cove in Gurnee, Illinois? It is conveniently located right next to the Six Flags Amusement Park and can definitely enhance your vacation or be a vacation all on its own.


A few days ago, we packed the kids up and drove over, excited to give the resort a visit. We didn't tell the youngest where we were going, we only told him that it was a surprise. The oldest knew, because, well she has to know these things to pack accordingly. ;)  When we pulled up he still didn't realize what a treat he was in for, but once we walked in the front doors, he knew.

Immediately when you step in you are greeted with a replica of a tropical paradise. There is seating everywhere, including big cozy couches next to the windows that overlook the huge indoor water park; a waterfall, several stores including one that carries anything you could need during your stay (& it's open 24-hours).

This store is open 24-hours a day & has everything you could possibly need during your stay.

This was just one of many, many of the cozy types of seating areas set up
around the resort. There were nooks and comfortable seating options
everywhere you looked.

Our son was delighted to see the indoor water park from the wall-sized windows on the ground level. The big surprise came, however, when we went down a short flight of stairs to the game room.

The game room was HUGE and you can see from the top middle picture that my son's
first reaction to seeing it was sheer delight.

The room we had was a very spacious, one-bedroom suite. It had two queen-sized beds, a couch, chair, dining room set, balcony with seating for two, and a little kitchen area (the room had a microwave and refrigerator as well). There was a safe in the drawer, a spacious area outside of the bathroom, two vanities, and pocket doors to separate the dining and living room areas from the bedroom and bathroom (both areas of which had a flat screen TV).

The teen immediately plopped on the sofa w/the remote (middle left). "Mom, Shakira's on Ellen!!!" Who?!?!?
The little one had no problem at all checking out every nook and cranny, and getting comfy on the balcony.
You know a resort is goooood when both kids are sound asleep by 10 PM (center).
Check-in was at 4pm, but you could come early and get a wrist-band to play in the water park. Check-out was at 11am, but again, you were welcome to spend the whole entire day in the rest of the resort after you'd left your room.

The wrist-bands for the water park were also the keyless entries for your room (this was an awesome feature because who wants to carry their card key to the pool?). You could also use your wristband to make purchases anywhere in the hotel, including for the arcades, shopping, dining, and the lockers down in the water area.

The Hurricane Vortex on the top right was awesome!
The seating was ample (one area on left, middle) & the locker rooms were huge (middle).
There were multiple fast slides (bottom left) & several kid areas (one is on the bottom right).

The lifeguards in the pool were very attentive. The towel attendants and food servers were very helpful and courteous. Even the locker rooms were impressive with a huge changing area, multiple showers (body wash dispensers were on the walls), restrooms, and a machine to extract the water from your wet suits.


There were six restaurants in the resort. We had pizza for lunch which was fine (the kids loved it), and a really delicious dinner at The Crazy Toucan Margarita Grille.

Hubby & teen ordered taco appetizers.
For dinner the bottom left is my Tequila Lime Pasta and on the right, hubby's Fajitas.
The kids got your standard burger, mac & cheese meals.

There was a shuttle that took you back and forth to Six Flags Amusement Park whenever you wanted to go (tickets purchased separately). That was awesome because it meant you didn't have to pay the $22 parking fee at the park. The driver was really nice, and at the waiting stop is where the Batmobile I posted yesterday was located.  If you wanted a boxed lunch (sub, chips, cookie, drink), you could order it at Key Lime Cove and they would deliver it to the amusement park...right to you, at a designated time. We didn't take advantage of that, but for under $9.00, I thought that was such a great idea.

Shuttle to Six Flags Amusement Park

There were many other perks, services, and fun things to do in the resort, way too many to list!

There were two spas, one award-winning spa for adults, and one separate spa for children (awesome!!).


There was also a very large room split into two big sections for crafts. Children could do one free craft a day. There were also many items available for purchase, and places to sit to get a great view of the outside. Again, everything had a tropical resort feel.

The craft room was awesome. You could do one free craft a day, or purchase
as many as you wanted. We created the free paddle ball game craft.

Every single thing was above and beyond nice, but he most amazing thing about the resort to me, was all the thoughtfulness that was put into everything. There were decorations all over the place that were just 'resort-y feeling' like the colored hallway walls,

The sections of all the walls were painted in different tropical-feeling colors.

The little man perched on the window sill up high,
See the man on the window sill up high? 

And old-fashioned gas pumps were on display.

Even the BATHROOMS were decorated in tropical grandiose fashion...not that I would take pictures in a bathrooms, who would do such a thing?!?!? ;)

The sign they had up that Key Lime Cove was a great place to relax was spot-on. We couldn't have had a more wonderful time.

Keylime Cove Resorts received the distinguished honor of being named the #1 Family Hotel in the US and #2 worldwide by TripAdvisor in 2012.

If you are going to Six Flags in Gurnee, IL (just outside of Chicago), this is hands-down the most convenient, best place to stay (there are package deals available for discounted amusement park tickets). If you're just looking for a place to relax, have fun, chill out, etc., this is also a great choice. It goes without saying that the kids loved it, but even better, the adults did too (it's win-win when everyone's happy).

You can learn more about the hotel by visiting their website here: http://www.keylimecove.com
You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

I thinknits great you get to write reviews after staying;)
I thought you were in Keywest.
Looks pretty nice actually. The kids seem to be having a great time.

Lizbeth McGow said...

Wow!!! I would really LOVE to go there! sounds like a lot of fun and it's so pretty too! Anything tropical gets the thumbs up with me!..and the look on your son's face when he was riding the "Oddie" looking dog was priceless! Glad you guys got to enjoy such a nice place! It really looks awesome!
Hugs girl!
Lizy

Christy Maurer said...

That looks so nice and so fun! I would love to go someplace like that :) Ok, my kids would totally take pics of the bathrooms lol!

Sandee said...

I'm old and I'd love to go. Sounds like a great place and you and your family certainly had a fabulous time. Awesome. Okay, and now I'm hungry.

You're such a good blogger. You photograph everything.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds and looks like an awesome spot. First time I ever even heard of it.

Kenya G. Johnson said...

The colors and decorations are a little hard on the eyes (just my opinion because I'm sure little man didn't care) but otherwise HOW NICE! So the whole thing is indoors? That is really cool. That's a nice place to plan a vacation for the time of year that has unpredictable weather. And I don't know how Shakira is either. Sounds familiar because I couldn't pick her out in a line up.

Tammy Graham said...

That certainly sounds like a great family place to stay. Your pictures are awesome and looks like everyone had a great time.

mail4rosey said...

They did have such a great time, and we did too. I like to visit places, but there's not a lot of them that I wish we had more time to stay...here I did. I could have stayed a week and been perfectly content. :)

mail4rosey said...

I think that is Odie, hahaha, I didn't even notice until you said. My son is such a geek, he's always making those crazy faces (and I love that about him). ;)

mail4rosey said...

My daughter was giving me the 'mom' look. I could hear the sternness in it, and I totally ignored it. :) :) :)

mail4rosey said...

My good camera broke and I have this point-and-shoot that's a cheapie thing, though I'm glad to have it (it's WAY better than nothing).

Wishing you a great day too. :)

mail4rosey said...

It was soooo fun. I've been on water slides, but that was my first time on a hurricane vortex (my daughter gets me to do the craziest things), and it was a blast!

mail4rosey said...

Yep, it was all inside. I don't usually like a ton of bright colors, but I loved them there. :)

Glad I'm not the only one slacking on the teen idols. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for reading, Tammy. It's a great place to go if you're in the Chicago area!

alissa apel said...

This looks like a really sweet place to be! I love water parks. I'm just not crazy about amusement parts with roller coasters and such. I'm a baby when it comes to those rides. Sadly I freak out when the boys go on them to.

That's so cool you left the trip a surprise for the youngest! So far 2 of our vacations have been surprises. It works out great because you don't hear about it every minute of the day before you go there.

Susan Kane said...

What a place!! The Illinois of my childhood would never have had such a paradise!

mail4rosey said...

They seem to like whatever it is more too, when it's a surprise. :)

mail4rosey said...

There was a lot going on in that area too, and dining options aplenty (though we didn't take advantage of them because we ate in the resort).

Raising Reagan said...

How cool .. you get to stay at some of the coolest places!!
How do you get into that anyway?

That looks like so much fun - you are so lucky gal! sandie

Colette S said...

I latched on to the shuttle to Six Flags!! That is so cool!

I know my kids would enjoy the indoor water fun too.

Look at that look on your son's face: priceless :)

Very nice place it seems. I'd love to visit.

Jerla Oh lalala said...

That looks like a very nice place for vacation and I love the fact that they have indoor water park :) fun for kids.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Oh my gosh this place looks incredible. I adore key lime pie.

Kelly R said...

This looks like a great place to stay.. Love this post...

Holy Ghost Writer said...

That place looks like great fun, have to keep it in mind

mail4rosey said...

This place was at the top of the list for cool. I had never heard of it, but we were planning a trip to Six Flags and it's the partner resort for the park. :)

mail4rosey said...

We did feel super lucky with that trip, Sandie. It was awesome!

mail4rosey said...

That shuttle was decorated, wasn't it? LOL The plain white one was running when we went, but I liked that one better. :)

mail4rosey said...

It was raining when we visited, so the indoor water park was THE perfect thing for the kids. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

mail4rosey said...

You and me both!!! :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Kelly. It was a place def. worth recommending. 2-thumbs up according to both kids (and there's a big age difference between the two). ;)

mail4rosey said...

:) It was fun.

Kristi Maloney said...

This place looks fun all on it's own! Nice that they have a shuttle over to Six Flags. My boys would everything - the waterpark, the hotel and Six Flags!

mail4rosey said...

There was not one thing we didn't like, Kristi. They've got a really nice set up going on over there!

Elisebet F said...

Looks awesome! I've never been to an indoor water park, but it must be the perfect thing for when the weather is really hot or really cold.

Anonymous said...

Oh what a fun looking place and delightful family photos ~ Wonderful post.

Thanks for 'visiting' . ^_^

mail4rosey said...

Or raining, which it totally was doing while we were there. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thank you, Carol. The kids had us acting their age all day long there, that was definitely fun. :)

Damyanti said...

Looks like a fun place to spend some family time.

Judy Haughton-James said...

That is a wonderful resort Rosey! So much to see and enjoy! Great review with beautiful pictures.

mail4rosey said...

Definitely a great place for family time. Thank you for stopping by to visit the blog.

mail4rosey said...

Thank you, Judy!! It was nice to do nothing but play all day!

Renae Simple Sequins said...

Goodness Gracious Rosey, You take the best vacations and your little guy looked like he was having the best time EVAH!!! Thanks for you fun comments about my scarves. I am so happy about have some many scarves at once. They are usually like $20 or more at retail. Thrifty scarves are AWESOME!!!

mail4rosey said...

Thrifty anything is awesome if you love it. :) Thanks for stopping over, Renae. :)

Jacquelineand.... said...

Looks like an absolutely fabulous time!

mail4rosey said...

It was, Jacqueline. And even the little one rode the fast slides (not the vortex, he was too small for that one), which amazed me!!! He wasn't a bit scared though. :)

Momma Lew said...

That looks SO awesome!!!!! So glad your family got to go and have a great time!

mail4rosey said...

My kids think it was a huge highlight for their summer vacay. ;) Hubby and I thought so too, actually. :) Thanks for the visit!

Cheriese said...

That looks like so much fun!! Always love your pictures!

Laurie Collett said...

Sounds like an awesome place to stay for a family-friendly, fun vacation! I feel like I've visited just reading your post! God bless,
Laurie

Stacey C said...

That looks so adorable and the food looks yummy!! I just love your blog :)

jaymesmommy2004 said...

Looks like so much fun.

Juliana RW said...

omg...you are lucky :D thanks for sharing the photos to us

Erica D said...

Looks fun! Seems like there are a lot of things for kids to do and the food looks delicious.

Veronica Lee said...

I would really love to go there! Everything looks so nice - the food and even the bathrooms!!! Love the pics as always, Rosey!

Suzan Sweatman said...

What a great " perk " Rosey - it looks fabulous - the little one must have been in 7th heaven ( I would have been in 7th heaven I think lol )
XOXO

Masshole Mommy said...

How awesome! It looks like an awesome place to visit. I know we have something very similar here in Boston, but I haven't actually been yet myself.

John DeBellis said...

A place both parent and kids can enjoy

DWei said...

That's pretty awesome of them. Shame they don't have a 6-flags here in Canada.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Cheriese!

mail4rosey said...

They made everything super easy to enjoy. Nice staff over there too!

mail4rosey said...

The food was yummy. Probably not very calorie friendly, but we didn't care at the time. ;) Thank you for the super sweet compliment. :)

mail4rosey said...

If we lived closer I'd want to go all of the time, lol.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for reading. :)

mail4rosey said...

I don't usually take pictures in a bathroom but I was blogging it, and who doesn't want to hear about the bathrooms? buwahhahaah. They were very cool (and very clean, I might add). :)

mail4rosey said...

It was ridiculously fun. The first time my daughter and I went in the vortex the raft spun around backwards and took us down the hill that way. She's always a daredevil and got scared (but ended up laughing, of course) so that cracked me up!!! Is that wrong? bwauahhahahahhahahahahhahhaa

mail4rosey said...

We don't have anything like that close here, but I wish we did. :)

mail4rosey said...

Definitely, and I'm not sure who had more fun. I think my husband liked it even more than we did because he got to float on the lazy river most of the time while I played with the kids. He doesn't get to relax like that too often. ;)

mail4rosey said...

We did go to Six Flags, and there was no grouching when it was time to go because they knew we were going back to the water park. ;)

Jessica Harlow said...

Key Lime Cove looks like a great time! It seems they've got everything covered for families staying!...If I'm ever in that neck of the woods, I'll definitely be checking into it! Thanks for sharing!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for visiting. :)

Katherines Corner said...

How fun!!!!!!! I've never been to six flags. But this place looks like so much fun!!! Thank you for sharing your happy memory making. xo

Jeanne Baney said...

What a nice and informative review! I've never been to Chicago but it's on my list! This would be a wonderful place to stay!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for stopping by to visit. :)

mail4rosey said...

Chicago is one of my most favorite places to visit. :)

Deliciously Inspired said...

Hi Rosey - Popping over from Deliciously Inspired - I feel like I went on a mini vacation reading your post. Sounds like a memorable vacation. It's so fun to surprise them when possible. Seeing those looks in their eyes is priceless.

mail4rosey said...

Agreed that the surprise/happy factor for the kids is the best part. :) Thanks for the visit.

Chris Giroux said...

I'm really enjoying these indoor waterpark resorts that are popping up everywhere. This one looks pretty cool with the tropical motif. With Six Flags right around the corner, this place seems perfect.

My Journey With Candida said...

Sounds like you had a GREAT time!! Since our kids are grown, we haven't done an amusement park in years.

Lisa Newlin said...

I don't even have kids and I want to do all of this! (Let's face it, you knew I would be on board with anything with "Key Lime" in the name.)

I love the keyless entry to the water park and I flipping love water parks!

I also didn't know Shakira was on "Ellen." :-)

mail4rosey said...

I like indoor waterparks too, they make rainy days fun. :)

mail4rosey said...

I can totally see hubby and I going together when the kids are grown...though come to think of it, we might be far too old by the time that rolls around, all things considered. ;)

mail4rosey said...

lol, who is Shakira?!?!? Hubby doesn't know either, & my daughter rolls her eyes when I ask. ;)

I love Key Lime pie too. :D

Ronnie E. said...

At first I thought there would be actual key lime pie involved. :) It looks like so much!!

mail4rosey said...

There was no shortage of food options, but we didn't get Key Lime pie. Shame on us! :)

myshelomitashop said...

Aaah that looks totally fun! The place reminded me a bit of Genting Highland in Malaysia. We also have a bad-version of this here, and had spent a weekend early this month in that place. Too bad I didn't take pictures because the theme park was too awful to share on my blog ha ha...

mail4rosey said...

All of what you just said was so very true! I was completely impressed with their set-up. Thanks for stopping by to read.

mail4rosey said...

Aww, that stinks. We went to the local fair that came into town and it was so bad the kids wanted to leave. Crazy, but true.

Looks like an awesome family-friendly place, would love to go there someday. Great pictures.

Theresa said...

We have been to 6 Flags numerous times, but have never stayed here. It looks like so much fun though, who needs 6 Flags? lol. I love the brightly painted walls and the swimming area looks like a blast! I am sure the family had a great time! I will keep this in mind for if we want to take a little vacay away from home. We like to travel to Gurnee for shopping, this would be a perfect place to stay!

mail4rosey said...

Ciao! Grazie per la messagio bello.

mail4rosey said...

Very family-friendly, and all-around nice too. Thanks for the visit, Kelly.

mail4rosey said...

That was my first time in Gurnee (and to 6 Flags). It was nice. I didn't know they had shopping! :)

~ Noelle said...

that is awesome.
so glad you shared, if we ever get up there, i want to stay there for sure ;)

mail4rosey said...

Bet all the boys in your house would love it!!

Julie Maloney said...

My kids would love that! A great vacation spot for sure, thanks! My computer is broken so I can't log into your site to comment so I just wanted you to know it's Julie from Momspective. It might say it's my husband. I can't figure this ten year old lump of a computer out!

mail4rosey said...

I'm sorry your 'puter's broken. :(

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Looks like a great place and that you all had a wonderful time..Thanks again for your visit to me..Happy Friday..Judy

Looks like a very fun place. Would love to go on a water slide right about now...and then eat some tacos!

That looks so fun! I've never heard of that place before. I love the tropical feel. Your food looks so delicious!

mail4rosey said...

I love summertime. :)

mail4rosey said...

LOL, those slides were totally fun. And there were many different ones to choose from, all that did something different. Very cool. :)

mail4rosey said...

I loved the tropical feel too. It made me want to see Key West. ;)

Kristie said...

What an amazing place to stay!! Doesn't sound like you'd ever have to leave to go to an amusement park, there's so much to do there.

I'll have to keep this one in mind! :-)

(Thanks for sharing that's where you saw the Batmobile.)

Rea T said...

oh wow! i(my kids) would love to go there rosey! i have not heard of this place before but what an awesome place for kids to go♥ wish we can get a complimentary stay there too...*wink*wink..

btw, when i first read your sentence "the lifeguards in the pool were very attentive" i thought you wrote "the lifeguards in the pool were very ATTRACTIVE" haha!!

thanks for joining the FUN FRIDAY BLOG HOP!

What an amazing trip...fun for everyone! I always loved going to Six Flags in TX but I've never been to Illinois! Looks like a great place to stay...a fun place to photograph for sure! Hugs!

Brian Miller said...

Kelly Blackwell @ Heres My Take On It said...

This looks like a dream visit for our kiddos! How nice that your family got to experience it. It all looks incredible from the room to the activities and of course the food. Thanks for sharing. If we are ever in the area, we will look into Key Lime Cove. :)

stevebethere said...

Wow! what a wonderful place loved all the photos looked like you had a brilliant time.

Have a funtabulosa weekend if your not too exhausted heheh!

Ai Sakura said...

wow that indoor water park is huge! what a fun family stay :)

Ai @ Sakura Haruka

mail4rosey said...

That's what I said, I could go there alone. But we loved Six Flags too, it was just double the fun. :)

mail4rosey said...

Def. a fun place for the kids, Rea.

Thanks for having me at the hop. :)

mail4rosey said...

I'd like to go to Six Flags in TX because it would mean I finally made it around to visiting Texas. :) :) :)

mail4rosey said...

Me too, Key Lime Pie or Lemon Pie, my two faves. :)

mail4rosey said...

They went all out with the decorating, amenities, and things to do. There really was something for everyone. It was a blast!! Thanks for stopping over to visit. :)

mail4rosey said...

Def. a great vacation spot! I think we'll go next year too, maybe take the oldest and his wife, their little one will love the kiddie pool area about then, I betcha' :)

mail4rosey said...

The cost is comparable to anywhere else and there's so much more to do than at your typical hotel. I enjoyed just getting up super early and walking around while it was quiet. Just a nice, nice place.

mail4rosey said...

Summer is no time for getting tired. :) Thanks for visiting. :)

mail4rosey said...

It really was huge, and fun too. Thank for reading. :)

Robin Wilson said...

I have to be honest, when I think of Illinois, family attractions like this aren't the first thing that comes to mind. But WOW what a wonderful place. I would so love to visit ~ one more for my bucket list!

mail4rosey said...

:) I love to visit Chicago, but this is the first time we went outside of it (though just outside of it) and it was really nice.

Angela Swanson said...

This looks really family friendly! I love the idea of a kids spa! Thank you for linking to our first Blog Strut Peacock Style link party last Thursday! We hope you will stop by this Thursday after 5pm pst again to post your latest. http://wp.me/P2Vf55-1K

mail4rosey said...

I thought the kid spa was a fantastic idea too, Angela! Thanks for the visit!

Amanda McMahon said...

This looks like a really fun but relaxing time. Thanks for introducing me to this place in Illinois

mail4rosey said...

If you're in the area, I hope you stay. It's got a five-star review rating on Trip Advisor...people just love it (our family included). :)

David Fultner said...

It looks fun. But squeezing all those little limes is not.

David Fultner said...

I love these pies. Even better if you some else makes them.

mail4rosey said...

That's what juicers are for, yes? :)

A. B. said...

First, something of a side-note: I love the little details in your posts! It really helps to bring the reader (well, me!) in to the story. Great example: How the older child needed for the mini-vacay to not be a surprise, so that she could "pack accordingly." Very wise girl! :)
I lived in Chicago for many years, and would pass by Key Lime Cove when driving north up to Wisconsin. I'd see it and think, water slides. Whenever I'd hear the words "Key Lime Cove" I'd think 1) cheesecake! (no, not pie-- I make a wicked key lime cheesecake!), 2) water slides, and 3) a fun place for families to visit.
And it looks like you all really did have fun! Thank you for sharing so many photos-- now I know what [some of] the interior looks like. And it's not all water slides! :)

Jerry Marquardt said...

This place looks well worth going to. The food even looks great. After I recover from surgery, I will be considering this as a great weekend getaway, being from the Chicago area.

Kerry Kollman said...

Kathys Killer Key Lime Pie=--my sister would love that sign, that's her name. And I love the Key Lime pie here in florida, Publix actually makes the best.

rochelle said...

Love to visit need a vacation looking good

Maryann D. said...

Visiting Key Lime Cove would be lots of fun. I do like the rooms and the food looks wonderful also.
