We went to the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky Ohio for our Honeymoon. It was close to home and very relaxing. My husband and I loved the food, we probably gained 5 pounds in the week that we were there! I loved the option of charging everything to your room, it was convenient to only have to carry a room key with us. The spa was very nice! We enjoyed a couple massage, very relaxing! I think this would be a great couples vacation or a family vacation, we would love to return!Sent on 10/03/2012

The wedding planning staff were amazing. They worked with us on every detail of our reception. They provided guests with discounts for rooms if they stayed. My husband and I received a free night the night of the wedding. They made sure they accommodated any allergies that were present for the food. The staff even suggested ways for us to save money. Since my husband and I are neither really into fancy parties, the staff suggested that we not use chair covers which saved us a lot of money. The staff even contacted our band in order to make arrangements to their space set up. I really would recommend them to anyone.Sent on 09/04/2008
