Stayed here last week for 4 days. We originally had a room out looking the courtyard and upgraded to a king view room out looking the water which was awesome. After upgrading I would recommend paying for the view. No complaints. Great pools and breakfast. It is great to just walk around and enjoy the property.

The rooms are great, especially those facing the water. The sunsets and the moon over the water are images that will stay in your mind and draw you back!! The staff was exceptional, and always willing to go the extra mile. Lots to do...

As many others have noted, the walls and floors/ceilings have no sound baffling and (in the hotel anyway) you WILL hear everything going on around you, whether it be people talking in normal conversational voices or the tv playing, not to mention the inadequately-supervised kids running around at all hours. Then there are the beds. They are old and squishy,... More

We enjoyed this hotel was a lake side view fron our room and we took a walk down to the lake and sat in a gazebo, great views, nothing exceptional on the breakfast, cold cereal and juice but we were going to get pancakes anyway. One thing is when you book they charge your card right away and there is... More

Stayed Thursday thru Saturday. Found clean room but sparse and after one day began to smell strong fishy odor when on balcony.. Untrained staff, teenagers mostly. Pitiful breakfast, sour milk. Lovely dining area but nothing to dine on. Lobby closes at 9 p.m. But typically no one there even prior to that. Was told when making reservation I would get... More

This is by far the worst place I've stayed. Funny smell in the halls ,no fridge in the room, no rose petals on my bed, which I paid for. Like 6 channels on the tv. Nearest gas store 10 15 min away. When asked to get my money back because I had a death in the family, was told no.... More

The hotel seemed to be staffed by high school kids. Walking into the mail lobby made my teenage daughter uncomfortable, and even I noticed the typical high school 'look-over' and mannerisms from these people. They need a lesson in working in the service industry. The adult staff were great. The rooms were dated (they really need to get rid of... More

We stayed in the hotel. The room had a jacuzzi tub, plus a regular nice bathroom, two beds, and a private balcony. It was just the two of... More

A great hotel (and cottages) for family fun. Stayed with our two pre-teens in a Queen suite and spacing was fine for a 3 night stay. Don't expect luxury, but clean (although daily housekeeping services marginal) and lots to do. Pros: Front desk staff very helpful, outdoor pools (3, but small), shuffleboard, volleyball, fire pit, tennis court, corn hole, gazebos,... More

We just had a wonderful stay at South Beach Resort. The 3 pools were clean and inviting, the complimentary breakfast was great and the room had a wonderful view. The people working were friendly and helpful.
