“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

The service here is very good, very organized: anytime we needed a shuttle we didn't have to wait. It's a very busy 4th of July weekend and nothing was slacking! We had such a great time and nothing went wrong. Highly recommend.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Have a lot to say...first do not take anyone with disabilities in walking here.Even for the healthy, the hills and steps around the resort are difficult to manage. But they do have an abundance of golf cart shuttles to pick you up (if you can easily step up and down onto them.)

We stayed three days in new remodeled room.The room itself was great and clean.It had 2 kings beds and sofa sleeper. There was plenty of room.However the bathroom tub/ shower was very slippery. With little traction two of our group slipped in bathtub..which we reported so changes can be made.The first day there was an old stain on sheets but housekeeping quickly fixed that.The fridge leaked but was quickly changed out.

The resort itself, besides hills and steps, was quiet and pretty. The activities were costly not included in room.Rentals at marina expensive. I wish fish bait for free fishing docks were available at a layer times but marina closed by 8pm or 9pm each day. The Tropic Cruise was expensive and waste of money.It cost $64 for 4 of us and was basically 90 minutes of looking at million dollar homes. ..not fun for kids. The pools closed early on Sundays. My daughter said outdoor pool only 3 feet deep.There was a long wait for bowling and no automatic scoring but the kids had fun.The gift shops are extremely overpriced. The Burger King on property was disgusting. Long wait for food and workers did not wear gloves.Food was not fresh. We had pizza deliveries to room fresh and hot...well worth $17 for one pizza. Despite all of these details the kids had fun. I mentioned bath tub safety at checkout and was discounted the $10 resort fee.Staff was very friendly and answered all questions well.

We were there for 3 days for a conference. The conference facility and staff were nice and I have no complaint there. However, for the first 2 nights we could not stay in the main building, we were put in the "Estates". It was a five minute drive (or 20 minutes for shuttle ride) to the meeting every day. The room was smelled of mold and the ceiling had water spots on it. It felt dirty... we could not see water from our space and it was a long walk to anything. We even had to request to have ice delivered for our ice bucket (30 minute wait). On the third night we moved to the main building and the room was very nice and the service was great. So, if you go here, request BUILDING A and you should have a great stay. They have indoor water park that is nice, boat rentals for any desire, miniature golf and several restaurants' on location. It is just the "Estates" portion of the stay that was unacceptable for me.

I spent a weekend with my family(husband, daughter, son-in-law & 3 grand kids) in two rooms. Our rooms were next to each other in the building across from the main building. I bought the rooms through Groupon so they were the basic rooms. Each had two full sized beds, small tables with two chairs, a sitting chair & refrigerator. The rooms & baths were very clean. The beds were comfortable & the toiletries were from Bath and Body. Also, it was hot & very humid that weekend. Both rooms stayed cool and comfortable.

The service at the resort was outstanding! My husband needs assistance walking long distances. In the parking garage there is only two handicapped parking spaces. They allowed him to park in the short-term parking. They also drove him to other parts in the resort via a golf cart whenever he needed. Before arriving, I called to confirm the reservations. In passing I mentioned I was celebrating my birthday & my daughter's birthday. The staff signed a card for us. I accidentally left a small coin purse in our room after we checked out. Two hours later, a woman called from the Management office. She was so nice & gladly made arrangements to send me my purse by certified mail.

We really enjoyed the indoor water park as well as the arcade & miniature golf. The outdoor swimming pool close to the lake was messy. There were a lot of dead bugs in the pool. The water was clear and the floor was not dirty. I think possibly the filter was clogged?? My only other concern was the smell of the small entrance/lobby of my building. It was a strong urine scent, yet everything looked very clean.

My family ate at the main restaurant twice and enjoyed it. Once again the service was great!

Tan-Tar-A is a fun place to take the family. If we had had a couple of more days, we would have taken advantage of the boat rental and/or horseback riding!!

Terrific service. Amazing views. A freshly updated large, inviting bar in the lobby. Shopping on site in the marketplace. Our modern, updated room had two king beds, a fridge, sitting area, and balcony overlooking the lake. Covered parking is available. Dining options. Horseback riding. Boat rental. The pool area is lakeside. The challenge: navigating the four buildings, however, staff is very helpful with this. Renovations are ongoing but what is finished seems to be taking this resort in a very positive direction.

My husband and I live in Conway, Arkansas. We drove 5.5 hours to meet up with my best friend and her husband. We didn't plan on staying at Tan-Tar-A but due to awful circumstances the hotel we originally booked we called and prayed they had room for us. The sweet lady that took our reservation was amazing! She gave us an incredible deal because of the trouble we had at the other resort(she actually price matched the other hotel AND upgraded our room!) which I thought was so nice of her. The resort property is gorgeous, the rooms are clean, and the staff is amazing! We will be going back!
