3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I would actually give 3.5 stars if I could - but not four. Overall, the resort was slightly above average. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful/friendly. If you go, pay the extra for the lake view and get a room on the first floor if possible. The lake view rooms have small patios/balconies, and the first... More

Bar was outstanding! Sarina Henderson was a SuperStar behind the bar. Actually more of a mixologist than a bartender! John Taffer of bar rescue will be hiring her away to be one of his experts any day now. Better get down there before she leaves. Will definitely be back.

I've had the opportunity to visit over the last several years and this visit was better than the last, but there is still room for improvement. The bar food was better than ever - good quality, and a great value based on other hotel bar food.

Overall, my experience at the resort was very good. Nice staff, clean rooms, great location. Just a few minor complaints. There were no vending machines on the floors and ice was very limited. The Tradewinds restaurant was the biggest disappointment. Other than being seated right away and our server, Blaine, there really wasn't anything nice about the food or wine.... More

The hotel and marina over all look nice and appealing. The problems seems to center around cleanliness and maintenance. Our room was nice and clean the only problem I had with it is that I found the mattress to hard to get a good nights sleep. The more formal restaurant had a buffet for breakfast and dinner but I found... More

We stayed at this resort o er the weekend. The only friendly face was housekeeping. They were super nice. The manager, staff (specifically Clay), staff @ Tradewinds were so undeniably either just plain rude or inattentive. All rooms in the resort were fully booked 2 weeks in advance. 1. Tradewinds. Upon entering there was no host. When she arrived, she... More

All told, stay was fine. But for the customer paying for a 2-room suite at almost $300/night; cost is twice as high as we'd expect to pay for the room/ amenities we received (comparing to a Residence Inn). Area was beautiful; we'd go back, but there are things we'd do differently. Summary: bring your own pool & beach towels, outdoor... More

First time to visit Lake Monroe and the Fourwinds Resort. The property was beautiful and the staff was friendly and helpful. While there I had a chance to eat in both restaurants and the food was great. The property offers casual dining and a more formal dining room whichever you prefer. I was there for a business meeting and wish... More

This a beautiful place. Very nice heated indoor/outdoor pool. If you love hanging out on a lake. This place is for you. You can rent boats, wave runners etc.. Before you get to the hotel you must pay to get into the area. But the front desk will take that price off your bill . 2 Restaurants on the property,... More

Our room was beautiful, clean, spacious! We had a balcony facing the lake and WHEN we come back, I must have that room again! The view is just beautiful. Walking the grounds is breathtaking and relaxing. When you are walking around any part of the resort, the employees are very polite and helpful! Beth was our house keeper and she... More
