Hotel location , facilities and food are amazing - very undersold on website. the food is great across all outlets - the heated pool is perfect with kids and the lake area has all the facilities you need with a big beach and a lot of support from water sport staff. Staff around resort are mostly students who panic at... More

Very impressed as I parked in the check in spot and was greeted by a cleaning person who welcomed me and opened the door. Check in was seamless as front desk staff was extremely efficient. Nice newly decorated rooms with fireplace, outside balcony and with fabulous view. Extremely clean and well keep rooms. Bar is well equipped with many good... More

We stayed at Taboo for a family getaway for a few days. The room/resort is very modern, clean, and elegant. Nice little beach and pools to enjoy. The service was very good. We requested an early check-in in advance, and though the resort was sold-out from the night before, our rooms were ready as soon as we arrived around noon... More

Stayed here last night in a king select terrace room that overlooked the parking area. We tried to stay 2 nights but it was sold out. The room was newly renovated and it had a very comfortable bed. They didn't tell us when we checked in that it was an accessible room. Not a big deal but it would have... More

I have a time-share cottage at Taboo and it is wonderful. I have been coming up for a decade now and the resort always has excellent customer service. Wide range of activities for all ages and good food, my favourite being the outdoor seating above the ski school (Boathouse restaurant). It's a wonderful place to come with a family of... More

My husband and I are staying at Taboo for our anniversary this evening, and while we love the room and the view, we are quite disappointed at the resort overall. For $400/night our expectations were much higher. Looking out of our room there are beer bottles and pizza boxes littered along the bottom, there are stains on the carpet throughout... More

We arrived here having checked out early from the resort we had originally booked, which had proved very disappointing. The check in process was chaotic and it took 45 minutes for our bags to be delivered to our room, but from that point on everything was great. Our 2 bedroom Platinum suite was fantastic, with a deck overlooking the lake... More

At the prices they charge, I would think the rooms could be better cared for. I am still at the resort now and have reported the grungy bathroom. Looks like a shower in a Super 8!! Yuck! They say that they have been so busy they did not have time to fix things up - that is a bit lame... More

Hello Jim B and thank you for taking the time to also post during your stay while you are still our guest at Taboo Muskoka. Wanted to make sure you were aware that was our Executive Housekeeper who personally came to the room yesterday and met you to address the shower. While it certainly doesn't excuse a small grout problem... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Taboo Resort. We only stayed for one night, but were very happy with our experience here. We were upgraded to a room with a view of Lake Muskoka, and our room was spacious, well-equipped and had some nice upscale touches. The location is fantastic, sitting right on the edge of the lake with lovely... More

This is a top notch resort . The staff are friendly and helpful. Best of all the food is extraordinary. Taboo Golf course is challenging with the nuances of a fairly modern professional type course design. The Sands is a nine hole course which is is lovely and mature with many challenges. I preferred this course but I am a... More
