Ramada Tropics Resort provides unique indoor paradise for family spring break destination
Spring vacation is the time of year when families with children generally receive a well-deserved break in March or April.
Children usually have at least a week off from school, depending on the state in which they live. Sometimes the break coincides around the Easter holiday.
This can be a popular time for a family to board a plane to a warmer destination – exotic locations such as Florida, California or even the United States Virgin Islands offer family fun. But families can have a much more affordable tropical spring break if they stay at Ramada Tropics Resort in Des Moines.
"With our 18,000-square-foot Buccaneer Bay indoor water park, we offer a tropical destination the whole family will enjoy – but the best part is that you can have it all right here in Iowa," said Rossie Williamson, director of sales for Ramada Tropics Resort.
Ramada Tropics has 166 recently-renovated rooms and suites, and poolside lodging is available next to the Buccaneer Bay indoor water park. The Buccaneer Bay features three swimming pools, two 150-foot tube water slides, a large pirate ship, water basketball and volleyball, a hot tub, and a poolside Tiki bar with fun, fruity tropical drinks.
"Kids love our tropical water paradise," said Williamson. "They can play on the pirate ship, shoot down the large watersides, and form water basketball and volleyball teams. Parents love relaxing nearby in the hot tub or at the poolside Tiki bar."
The Des Moines hotel also has spacious suites available – perfect for families – with wide living room areas and cozy king- or queen-sized beds. These suites feature two flat-screen televisions and comfortable sofa sleepers. Each room comes with free wireless Internet access. All guest rooms and suites come with several passes to the Buccaneer Bay water park.
Ramada Tropics also has one of the best on-site family restaurants of all Des Moines hotels. The Castaways Bar & Grill serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a relaxing atmosphere, friendly service and decadent cuisine, Castaways Bar & Grill serves mouth-watering steaks, seafood, burgers, pasta and pizza – as well as a full cocktail and dessert menu. A kids' menu is available featuring fun fare in children's-sized portions.
