The first week of June my sister and her family used their two bedroom, my parents used their one bedroom, we bought a one bedroom from interval and we used our two bedroom unit for a family/friend vacation. We rented three slips for our two boats and four jet skis. The docks make this resort just about perfect.
Once again we had a fantastic time. Check in is easier this year due to the renovation of the entrance - they removed the step at the front door, so with the courtesy carts moving your stuff up to the room is done in the shade and is really easy. The front desk was organized, quick, and friendly. The rooms haven't changed although they do have new pots and pans that are great. The walls are thin and don't stop much sound, but the rooms are clean and the housekeeping exceptional. The wifi is much better this year, not blazing fast, but fast enough that you can keep up with the office without having to go downstairs to the hotel computers. All three pools are crystal clean. The first time I did the slide it was because the kids made me, the next several times was because it was just so much fun. Having the lower pool for the kids, the upper for adults and the Kokomo pool for younger drinkers really seems to work out well. Although we didn't use it, there is a new shopping service offered and they will stock your room with food for you. You get an email about a week prior to your visit offering the service. The kitchens in the rooms have a stove, sink, microwave, refrigerator, blender, and dishwasher. We made breakfast and dinner for the entire crew (18 people) several days and didn't want for space. There's even a small store by the front desk that sells ice, pop, beer, papers, etc.
Do not forget to bring ear plugs if you arrive on Friday or Saturday as both nights are party nights at Kokomo's and Martini Bay. The rest of the week you might get away with not wearing them. We tend to be on the boats all day and hit the beds just as the party seems to be starting, so I don't have any idea how the party is at the clubs, but I can tell you they go until about 2 a.m.
The only poor experience we had was my wife, sister, and their girl friends were treated rudely by the bar tender during happy hour in Martini Bay (6/2/13). The good news is that they took their daily $100-150 bar tab across the parking lot to another happy hour. This resort has a ton of places to eat and drink within easy walk, so if you don't like what's here, you can find something else very close by. They did go back for the "mix-ology" class given by Ryan and report that they absolutely LOVED his class. Later he told us it was his first class, but you really couldn't tell. The resort offers other classes as well and has contacts with the local concessions including jeep tours, boats, walking, biking, kayaks etc.
This resort was built quite a few years back so the basic construction isn't up to today's standards. However, the staff makes up for anything lacking in basic construction. The front desk is helpful, the cleaning staff fantastic and the maintenance guys are right on the spot. Even the security staff is friendly, visible and on the job both inside the resort and in the parking lot where your trailers are parked - we felt safe the entire time.
In conclusion, this really isn't what you'd think of as a resort, but it is a wonderful place to stay for a week of boating on the lake. The kitchens in the rooms will save you a ton of money and the boat docks really make the boating easy. After a day on the lake, the showers and air conditioning are appreciated and the convenience, location, upkeep and staff really make you feel welcome and comfortable for a weeks vacation.
