After reading about the elevated location with lake views we decided to book 6 nights in early July. The staff was excellent, friendly and helpful. There is a gym and a sauna, and the resort is half way up on a steep hill. Our room was on the 2nd floor, but instead of 'Lake Views' we had views of the court yard... a bit depressing.
The walls are made of thin plasterboard, subsequently we were surrounded by a mix of noises from our neighborhood. Some slept with their TVs on, so we had to listen to that all night.
The bed was old, the mattress was worn so we kept rolling into the middle. The bathroom is not designed for big people.
Food in the restaurant was good but the prices were a bit steep. Internet access was an absolute rip-off, although there is free wifi at the bar, limited to 8mb (useless)
