The hotel’s crown jewel is it’s 75,000-square-foot water park, Bluegreen’s Wakoola Springs, with two twisting water slides, interactive fountains, a zero-entry pool and two hot tubs. Adjacent to the water park is the hotel’s bar and grill, and guests can fish and paddleboat on Lake Eve or relax on the boardwalk or pier.
