Over priced no iron, ironing board, microwave or refrigerator in the room. Small tv and you can't use your jacuzzi after 10PM paper thin walls you can hear the people in the next room talking. You can't separate the deposit of the rooms and was not explained that all rooms would be paid from the card making the reservation.

We read reviews on here and so at first were hesitant to go there but it was WONDERFUL, like it would be going to a family lake house if your relatives weren't like ours are, devoted to drama and conflict. My kids and I loved it from the minute we arrived and hated to leave. We've found our summer retreat... More

Resort? No. Staff was rude! Handle broke on bath within five minutes of being there. I spoke with Connie at the front desk. Asked for owners name and or supervisors name. She refused to give it to me. Literally. She also was threatening towards me. Lawn keeper threatens my minor children and telling them they are going to be arrested.... More

Misleading info. Waterfront is a boat dock, private beach is extremely small. Didn't use the pools. Continental breakfast is dismal. Rooms have paper thin walls, heard the family next door with cranky kids, squeeze doors. For a "resort" at the exorbitant price $300+ per night, the bedding, linens could have been a better grade. Ice machine was broke, a/c was... More

We stayed for 2 nights. When we first arrived everything looked great and the Staff was friendly. Beautiful surroundings with the lake view and small dock. The Cottages out back were cute and the 3 pools were wonderful. Sleeping was difficult due to thin walls and ceiling, The bed looked comfortable but unfortunately was hard and the pillows were horrible.... More

We ended up at this resort after a disappointing experience at Sandcastle suites in Cedar Point. This is no 5 star hotel but it is comfy and has a nice set up of pools and mini marina out back. There are little houses to rent here too but we stayed at the main hotel. It is about 35 min away... More

South beach resort looks. The place is clean and they done a lot of updates. The outside areas are clean and have a lot of things for kids and young family's. The check in area is nice and the boat docks are great!! There is also 2 pools. One looked to be a family pool and the other closer to... More
