We stayed here in august of 2012, while visiting our son and grandkids for about a week. Our grandkids are 3 and 6, and were welcomed to stay with us. As you can imagine, they are a handful! However the staff never once complained, and even encouraged them to have fun. They have many activities for the kids and, thank goodness, for the adults also. Once, i needed to go to the store so i asked the front desk to call me a cab and they told me they have a free shuttle to take me...WOW!.He was there within 5 minutes and even told me to take my time, he will be waiting and even brought up the large order of food i had bought. We treated ourselfs and the kids to room service one night and it not only arrived quickly, but hot and every order was perfect, right down to the condiments they somehow knew the kids would enjoy...they have a beautiful lake out back with a picknik area that takes your breath away...i can't say enough about the staff!! Very proffessional, yet fun. They seem to know your mood, wants and needs. I must attribute this to the wonderful General Manager, Brandy Smith, whom I met on checking out to have her express my pleasure and gratitude to the entire staff. after speaking with her for just a few minutes, I knew why this place is the best. She truly respects her staff and lets them be themselfs....anyway, The rooms are beautiful, the food is excellent, the service perfection!.they have a large indoor heated pool, a hot tub and a video arcade. I will be back next summer!!!
