On the plus side this resort is very beautiful and offers alot of activities which are included in your stay. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful at the Hotel part of the resort. You can rent all sorts of bicycles and they have safe bike trails to follow. The put-put golf course was amazing. My daughter and I even played horseshoes for the first time.
On the down side I encountered some things I didn't like. First I was unaware that we would have to drive a mile to each of the recreation centers every time we wanted to do something. That was annoying and I was never told upon booking this is how the resort was set up. Second, they have 3 places to eat at the resort but each one is only open at certain times of the day. One night we were told the wrong time that the restaurant for dinner opened. Turns out we were an hour early and the bar opened at the time we came. The girl who worked there had the audacity to tell me (since my kids couldn't go into the bar) that I could go in and beg the guy to let us order and sit on the couch in the waiting area and eat. Very unprofessional and outright rude!! We ended up driving a half hour to Bend to eat at a Shari's restaurant! Lastly, I paid to relax and looked forward to getting in the hot tub at the end of the night. When we got to the hot tub I found it packed with about 15 loud teenagers. Didn't know until they were finally leaving that they had snuck into the resort and weren't even staying there! This place had nobody around to watch the grounds and no security gate so outsiders cannot come in.
The price was very affordable for everything included, but I doubt I will ever make the 3 hour drive there again.
