By visiting the web site, I thought this resort was going to be easy to get to and keep me and my guests occupied for three days. I was wrong. Coming from Northern New Jersey, we found it very confusing to get to and it took a lot longer than anticipated. Upon arriving, you can have your vehicle valet parked if you want, but we opted not to and therefore had to walk from the parking lot to the hotel. Check-in was pretty smooth, although there was initially no one at the front desk when we arrived. There were employees at the concierge and customer service desks though so they promptly got someone to check us in. We were then escorted to our room via a bell hop which was nice considering the lay out of the hotel is quite confusing.
The room was nice, but nothing spectacular. The free Internet service was nice, but inconsistent, sometimes not working at all. The room was of a nice size, everything was clean and quiet except for the few airplanes flying above occasionally. Overall, I thought it was just very standard.
There are four restaurants. We didn't eat at The Atrium because the buffet was expensive and we also didn't try Provare. We did eat at Mulligan's which is outdoors and The Pub, both of which had decent food at decent prices. We basically ordered room service which arrived timely and was always good.
The pool is nice, it connects between indoors and outdoors. Even though it was September, I felt the water was a little cold. There are also lanes designated for that type of swimming. Although I do believe you have to sign up for that. We briefly went in the hot tub, but that got old fast too. There is also a gym, which we didn't try. There is a very small game room that I don't know how long it would keep children occupied. The web site boasts they offer a wide array of activities, and although I don't doubt they may have them, I personally didn't take advantage of these activities, nor did I see any one else other than the few people in the gym and pool and people playing golf.
In a nutshell, this resort is nice, inside and out. Nothing spectacular but there were no real problems other than there not being much to do unless you golf. We went out once and got lost for about 30-45 minutes because it was dark and there are no street lights. This is a golf resort, so if that's your thing you'd have a lot more enjoyable time. Overall our stay was relaxing, but we only stayed two nights instead of three because we were too bored. I wouldn't go back again simply because it is too hard to get to and there's not enough to keep me occupied.
