Recently visited this property for business...although I wish it had been for pleasure!! Beautiful place, very clean and did I mention the staff??? It's rare that I can say more about the staff than I can say about the property!! But this place has really raised the bar where staff training is concerned. Specifically Joshua!!

We stayed at this resort one night while visiting family in the area. We were sorry we didn't stay longer. The grounds were expansive, interesting and pretty, with many hiking trails and places to bicycle. There were tennis courts and a huge water park area with pools, waterfalls and more. There were lots of covered terraces with tables and chairs... More

Thanks to Megan and the staff at the Marriot we were able to have a nice private graduation party. Megan K. was the reason we were able to secure the reservation. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious. Our waitress was attentive and nice. The hotel is very large and beautiful.

Would absolutely stay here again. Great location and even better staff, super friendly and helpful. From the valet, the front desk staff, the cleaning staff, the servers and the bellhops, they all made me feel right at home and welcome. Well decorated and even has a great fire-pit. Lots of dining choices nearby but try the pasta in the main... More

Not particularly easy to find on a dark winter night and not close to anything.
