Have stayed at this hotel since it opened - bringing a large number of family and friends to the island every year. Definitely paying for the view at this resort and nothing else. Clear to me after this trip that the property is under terrible management and customer service has declined significantly. Members of our group were given a room... More

At $185 a night, I walked through a pitch black parking lot because none of the lights worked. Beds where cheap with no bed liner, thin, trash left from the previous guests. No refrigerator. This place reminds me of going to a college football game. Check into one gate, check your bags and coolers for alcohol. No key pads outside... More

First arrived... all alcohol was confiscated as you are not allowed to bring any into your room. You have to buy drinks at the tiki bar which means no drinking past 10/11 whenever it closes. No friends or family staying at another place on the island are allowed to come up to your room ( they literally came up to... More

First impression was the unfriendly lady behind the front desk. Then we asked to rent a golf cart but none were available. The room smelled of urine and the carpet was dirty. Our room was also right outside the tiki bar on the first floor so no privacy or screened in area like the top two floors. The flies bite!... More

I wasn't sure about staying here due to reading the recent reviews! So glad I didn't listen to them. We are having an awesome experience. We got a first floor room. It is amazing, very roomy and very clean. Loved the fact that we can just walk outside. My husband walks with a cane and this is perfect for him.... More

Our children paid for the hotel for Christmas and it was perfect. I can't complain about anything except the Mayflies and that has nothing to do with them. We were on the third floor and there was a great view of the water. The pool was nice and the tiki bar was great also. We had a fish dinner at... More

So the elevator was out the ENTIRE weekend ! My mother, who has Multiple Sclerosis was on the 3rd floor! When we asked about switching to a lower level floor they offered to give us an additional room on the first floor BUT would have to charge us an additional $185 We had already paid $1800 for the 2 suites...

Well, where shall I start? The room itself, which was ground level, had a view of the lake but it was also an amazing shot of the pool fence. The "view" was impossible due to being feet away from the pool. You get a better shot of the people swimming then you did of the lake. The dresser in our... More

The hotel is very clean, nice to have our own patio to the pools and tiki bar and a few block walk to town. Golf cart rental is reasonably priced. Did not eat on the property, but mixed drinks were good. Weekday prices are reasonable, but weekend prices were crazy. All in all, wonderful, quiet place to stay.
