We had purchased a 99.00 weekend deal from deal chicken. By the time the weekend was over we wished we had chickened out. I realized it was camping but We have camped in bare cabins that were a 5 star hotel compared to this. My husband and I visited this resort when Fontanas were first opening it. Although it was just opening it was awesome. The restaurant was open with awesome food and very reasonable prices. On that visit we were greeted by a female with a basket of fruit and cookies. There was a brunch on Sunday , the grounds were great , the host was accommodating and the rooms were comfy.. So we were looking forward to returning to at least what we saw the last time if not more improvement. Our room was supposed to have a small fridge and a microwave it did not. Glad we had not brought food with us , we had bigger problems ahead of us. The room reeked of urine and mold, the rug was horrific the windows could not be open, the door did not lock, the bedding smelled and was filthy, and the fan worked on 1 speed. We went to the gazebo where a dead plant hung over our head, , there was machinery all over the place, the trails were a mess, the fountain was greener then a forest , and there were 3 broken gnomes . To look at their website the pictures look so inviting its hard to believe its the same place We were unable to purchase food. There was not even coffee the next morning however they did allow us to have a cup of their personal coffee. Unfortunately we purchased a gift for family members , they went and felt pretty much the same way but were gracious to us as it was a gift. Perhaps if we hadn,t been there in the better days it would not have been so bad.
