Really enjoyed our stay at the Worldmark Resort in Osage Beach, MO. We had a 1 BR condo that was spacious, clean, well-appointed, with a balcony that had a beautiful view of the lake. (Others in our group also had 3BR and 4BR condos and they were all large and nicely appointed.) The murphy bed worked out well for the third person in our room. He found the bed very comfortable and easy to take out/put away each day. The condo came with the necessary kitchen items that we needed for our week's stay, including useful more obscure items like measuring spoons, can opener, lighter, etc. There were even containers for food storage, although I'd recommend you buy some ziploc bags or other food storage items if you're going to eat in-condo often (as we did). We really have few complaints about the condo except that the reception on the TV was not great. The grounds were clean, generally quiet (although we could often hear kids running upstairs), and the week went smoothly.
The pool was a good size with sufficient lounge chairs available and a few tables with umbrellas, a kiddie pool, and a large jacuzzi tub. I thought the pool hours could have been a little longer. Since there's no life guard at the pool, why not leave the pool open until midnight? Right now, they have adult swim from 9-10pm, but why not have adult swim from 9-midnight? Especially in the hot summers, it's almost preferable to be outside at night.
The resort doesn't have a beach and that's unfortunate, but I don't think it's common for resorts to have swimming beaches on Osage Beach. They have a dock for diving and swimming in the lake so that was nice. They have a game room with pool, ping pong, and some arcade games. They also have a fitness room with a few machines. I would also recommend extending the hours for the fitness room to open at 6am (since many people are used to exercising early in the morning).
I would also recommend a non-smoking building. As a non-smoker, it's always frustrating to have to inhale someone else's smoke, as was the case on our balcony (from a smoker on another balcony).
Our condo was around $900 for the week which was an excellent deal given the amenities in the resort. Finally, there was sufficient parking and the resort was close to plenty of nearby attractions, restaurants, and boat rentals.
