With two sections separated by a few city blocks, guests will find plenty of places to explore. One Bedroom Suites are located in the original section of Schlitterbahn, accommodate up to six guests and feature two full beds, a sofa, fully equipped kitchen and Wi-Fi. Riverbend Cabins are located in the Blastenhoff section, offer great views of the comal river and feature two queen beds and a sleeper sofa. Schlitterstein Lofts also sleep up to six guests and make a great option for larger families. They boast two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a Jacuzzi tub and a private balcony.

While the water park is the most popular attraction, there is still plenty of fun to be had when the water park is closed. Guests can enjoy the resort's four heated outdoor pools, a sand volleyball court, bean bag toss, ladderball, hiking, fishing and a picnic area with fire pits. For excursions outside the resort, ask the concierge to book a horseback riding tour, a scuba-diving lesson or even sky diving.

Proximity to Gruene and downtown New Braunfels was great!
Other Comments
The rooms were outdated and pretty frumpy for a "resort." The waterpark vibe was pretty dreary and depressing. The "hot pools" were not hot enough to swim in.

Yes, other than the dead roach and loud heater we liked our room a lot and the next morning when it wasn't too dark to see around us the view of the river and birds and squirrels was lovely. The people we interacted with at the front desk were also helpful and friendly. So I would consider going back in the summer perhaps.

When we booked the description stated 5 heated pools, I realize it's winter but this was the main reason we booked here, so our kids could swim in the winter. The place was eerily dark when we arrived and we couldn't find a pool the evening we checked in. There was also a giant dead roach in our bathroom (I know, at least it was dead) and the heater was SO loud! The next morning I was told by the front desk (couldn't get through with any of the phone #'s on the literature in the room so I drove back up to the front) that ONE heated pool was open and we had to drive down the street to visit it. Which we did, but we were near check out time, so my kids had to change in the car before we drove home so they wouldn't be in their bathing suits. I feel it was very mis-represented and would not have booked here had I known there was ONE pool we could swim in and it involved driving quite a bit to get there.

The only downside (which wasn't even a huge deal) is the location of the suites to a railroad track - you could hear trains passing but they do not blow the horn in town so it was not terribly disturbing.

Mattress was comfortable, very roomy, on the river, and especially had nice area to run.
