The resort is on the lake, docks & all. We were here Memorial weekend and happened to be front row seats for impressive firework display. Great breakfast place next door (The English Muffin). Easy drive down to bath houses and restaurants down town. Staff very nice. Just a touch dated, but well maintained. Very serene on the water.

I had never been here before and I was impressed. My only complaints were the pressure for hot water was awful, and only blinds on bedroom window, which made it very light in the mornings. But those did not ruin my time there. We had a 6th floor room and front row seats to the firework show, which was awesome.... More

The kitchen was fully stocked and it has a full kitchen. We cooked several meals there. The balcony was great and I sat out there a lot enjoying the peace and... More

It's a dated resort so if you are looking for fancy this is not for you but we would stay again without question. The lake view side is beautiful. Nice area for children to play and feed ducks and restaurants within walking distance. Not too far from oak lawn.

We stayed at SunBay for the week of New Years, the location is within easy driving distance to downtown Hot Springs. We had a 2 bedroom unit that backed up to the water - we had a great patio to sit out on and enjoy the view. We prepared a few meals and the kitchen was fully stocked so we... More

I did not feel we got value for our money. It was like walking back into 1960. The staff was friendly and it was clean. It is on the lake but mostly the view was of boat docks and buildings. It was a very smalll unit with no real amenities. Would not stay here again.

Wonderful huge 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen, massive Jacuzzi tub, amazing lake views, heated swimming pools, new big screen Tvs, free WiFi, perfect leather sofa and chairs, large comfy bed with great pillows, access to extensive athletic club. We love it here and we come back year after year after year. I would never think about staying anywhere else.

My 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren stayed here last week. We loved the staff, the condo and especially the view. It has very nice villas. The whirlpool tub was huge and we all loved it. We have stayed here several times and really like it. The staff is very helpful.
