No value for the price. Have contacted manager for refund, but no luck. We have stayed there July 5th 2014 for one night. First of all, it does not represent resort property, because towels feel like sandpaper, and hot tub is only a hot tub that holds 70F degree temperature. Therefore I would call it a warm tub if any... More

Well, it was a great bay! We have stayed here a few times and have always enjoyed it. The pools are great. Two for the kids, including a zero-entry kid pool with splash buckets. And a quiet pool near the quiet marina and an attached hot tub. Everything has always been clean and maintained. This really is a beautiful property.... More

Lovely room with a Jacuzzi and a great view of the lake. Helpful staff and good breakfast. The only downside was the cleaning of the room - the only thing that was done was emptying of bins and fresh towels. The beds were not made for the four days we stayed, even though I asked every day. One day I... More

My family and I had a fantastic time at South Beach. We stayed one night in the hotel and hope to come back someday stay in a cottage. The kids loved the pool area and the play area. We spent much of our time on the pier fishing where the kids caught a ton of catfish. The grounds are beautiful... More

I was sold on staying by the water and seeing the lake every morning when I woke up. This was truly great, I loved the view. When it comes to cleanliness and upkeep to the place it was not to my standards. The bed had small blood stains on it. The floor had dead rose petals in the corner. Where... More

A big resort smashed on a tiny piece of property. We didn't stay in the cabins only the hotel portion. The rooms were average hotel type rooms, we were on the ground floor had a back porch with chairs the room was comparable to holiday Inn or something like that. The room was not stellar or super clean, dusty windows... More

My family and I stayed for a long weekend in June and the resort was all we could ask for. We took the Kelly's Island Ferry which was located near the resort for a quick trip to Kelly's island one day and made the short drive to Cedar Point the next. The view and amenities are everything you can ask... More
