Another great vacation! I was waiting to see some reviews before going, but since it was so new, there weren't any. I got home from there today, ran to the computer, and someone already beat me to be the first reviewer.
First, the facts: only part of the resort is Wyndham, with more Wyndham units to come. The rest is a hotel resort, which is physically closer to the water park (it was a hike to get to it from the Wyndham side), and the water park is not owned by Wyndham, which is why you have to pay for the mini golf ($6). This also means that when the park is closed, (only open 10-8), you have no swimming pool. (We tend to be busy during the day, and want to swim early, or late). The food was reasonably priced. There is an outdoor park that opens in warmer weather, and more outside water areas opening in May. It should get better as it matures.
The parking is convenient, the rooms magnificent, the beds comfy, the elevators prompt, and as always, there aren't enough carts to move your luggage. It didn't seem crowded, either in the water park, at check in, in the lobby when you wanted a computer, in the exercise room, or in general. They had a nice gift shop and convenience store in the hotel section.
There were stores nearby to stock up on things, just learn the back roads to avoid the LONG traffic lights.
Lastly: There were so many things to do in the area, and they weren't crowded either. (April 18-23). Visit Dollywood, Walden Creek Stables, Ripley's Aquarium, and Bryson City, NC Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. They all were memorable.
