Let me start by saying I love the Naswa. My parents took us as kids when it was only cabins on the beach and my husband and I have been going to the resort for a number of years and have always had a great time. The food is wonderful in both the restaurant and the outdoor bar area, and... More

Hi Friends! Thank You so much for making our stay memorable. The front desk had balloons and cute towel animals on the bed for my birthday. My daughter Jade (8) loved making the tie dyed shirts. The boat ride was a nice free treat. We are hoping to come back up in a few weeks! The rooms were so nice... More

Very nice resort IF you have young children. This was our first time at Naswa. When we stayed, there were many toddlers and young children in the beach area which I was unprepared for. Our family getaway with our two teenaged children was not so relaxing with the number of young ones running around in the tight beach area. After... More

My husband and I were there from July 29 through August 1. The room was spotless, the staff was accommodating, housekeeping was excellent. I could go on and on with great reviews.

This is a fun and casual place. We got a complimentary boat ride around the lake on the resorts own boat..i will go back here every summer! Getting to sit in tne water while having a cocktail and waiting for lunch was cool. They let u bring your own cooler on the beach. I highly recommend this place

We stayed here for one night in a cabin overlooking the lake, and I would definitely come back. It's nothing fancy, but the view on the porch alone is worth it. The bathroom is teeny tiny and the shower overflowed, but we weren't in the room that much to matter. When we were there, we were sitting on the porch... More

We are happy you enjoyed your evening in one of our cottages overlooking the lake. It is always fun to people and boat watch from one of our decks! Perhaps you were not aware that one side of our beach is dedicated to lounge chairs, sunbathing and swimming while the opposite side is occupied by the NazBar & Grill. You... More

The resort is neat and clean. The staff throughout was very friendly. I was caught off guard that we had to pay in full on check in. I've never had to do that anywhere else I've stayed. Always on checking out. The resort is an older one and while efforts to update it have been made it needs more. Our... More
