This resort is lovely , lots of walking is required. We are a family of 5 and it was a tight fit for 8 nights. I know even a family of 4 felt it was small, but really if you are only sleeping there than its not too bad for a budget . The food area was nice and we felt it had a great selection of foods for all our tastes. The pool was nice and warm ...as the weather was a bit cold .
Our biggest problem was the distances we had to travel from our room to a bus area, our son is in a wheelchair and we had asked prior to arrival that we may have a room close to the main entrance, well we were not so fortunate and had to walk about 5-7 mins to get to the front were we learned very quickly we would need to board all buses , especially in the morning as this resort is also one of the biggest and buses fill up at the first stop leaving many people waiting for a long time at the west,north and east depot. The north depot was great for us to get off and get to our room within 2 mins. The up side with the walking is its great exercise and the grounds are lovely .
rooms were clean , we did not have the nice housekeeper that made towel animals , but thats ok it was clean . We had to request more pillows X2 before we got them , no big deal . Staff was always cheerful and helpful . Our waitress Jenny at Boatwrights was fantastic!
I would stay here again if it was only 3 of us and make sure we were closer to the main entrance, although I will most likely splurge again and stay at Wilderness Lodge especially with my whole family.
