Just back from four days at the resort and had a great stay. Our golf group goes each year and this is our fourth year in a row staying at the JW. Staff is great as is the facility. While parts of the hotel are aging a little, unless you're someone who's very worried over small imperfections, the facility is wonderful.
They've just renovated the pool area, which is nicer now than before. The common areas tend to be the nicest and most updated, while some of the rooms are aging just a little. I get the feeling that they're slowly renovating the whole hotel. Golf there is nice, but with so many amazing courses nearby, a "normal" resort course like these two have a hard time standing out. The sushi bar in the lobby is excellent. The Lakeshore dinner buffet was like an assisted living facility at night with people coming from the area to eat cheap crab legs and prime rib for 29 bucks. I'd avoid that next time and head down the street to Sherman's Deli, one of the best delis on earth.
Overall, great place to stay and play.
