We stayed in a two bedroom upstairs unit. The master bedroom had a king size bed that was so comfortable that I slept really well. I loved the heavy curtains that we were able to close in the bedroom to block out the morning sun. I never sleep in, but was able to here. The 2nd bedroom had a queen... More

I really liked this resort. Indoor pool, big out door pool, putt putt golf, lots of family activities. Our unit was a two bedroom with two bathrooms. It was big and clean and the living room had a new large flat screen tv and a fireplace with a view of the lake. Very kid friendly gorgeous grounds. Drop off keys... More

We enjoyed our stay at this resort style property. We had a 2 bedroom upper unit condo with a fully furnished kitchen and washer/dryer in our unit. We had 1 king bed and a queen. I assume the sofa was a bed too but we didn't check. They had lots of kids activities, movie rentals, several pools, a bar, miniature... More

This resort was in a nice location for visiting attractions in the area. When we first arrived check in was quick. I requested an updated unit with a loft which had twin beds, so I would not hear complaints from my kids having to sleep together (ages 19, 14). My request was granted. After I was given my keys, I... More

We stayed here because our friend has a time share. The room we were in had scuffs on the wall and blood (we assume from killing mosquitos). The unit was a two bedroom unit but we had six adults. The room that used to have the hot tub they put in carpet and it was clean so we used it... More

We recently had a family member pass away. We decided to try to take a short last minute family getaway and were having trouble finding a place last minute for Saturday thru Tuesday. We saw this place was to have availability for the dates we wanted. When we contacted the property owner, Jim Gioiosa, he said that it now wasn't... More

The grounds well absolutely beautiful and clean. We stayed for a very cheap rate in a two bedroom suite. Half of the room was renovated and the other half wasn't. I was later told they are in the process of updating, so I got the concept. They have a kitchen where you can make meals if you plan on saving... More

Right from the get go the staff attempted to get us to attend a timeshare speech. We even tried to cancel our appointment for the hour and a half presentation but they were relentless- calling our room repeatedly, even waking us up! We decided to attend the presentation which was closer to 3 hours. Aggressive sales people, pushing their Diamond... More
