“Nice Winter retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

So the resort is in good shape and nicely appointed. We brought our own food and used the galley kitchen to save some money. I think it might be a nice dells location in the summer. I know other people have noted loud and busy, but that is all the resort hotels in the dells in summer by and large. In the winter the place is silent and empty.
Flat screen TVs and large tub in the master bath was nice.

The one negative thing in the winter season is that you are very distant from the indoor water park. So make plans accordingly.

Plans for kiddos with the indoor park, most of the slides require hight over 48 inches. So little toddlers have limited water play options.

Room Tip: Look for lower number rooms for slight shortening of walk to the park.

We didn't stay at this hotel but had friends that did. We were so impressed by the friendliness of staff to the cleanliness of the hotel. We stayed at one of the Village rooms for Mt Olympus and were quite jealous of our friends. The hotel was quiet and nicely decorated. Parking was so much easier as well for them. We would defiantely stay at a BlueGreen.

My family stayed at this hotel from November 16th-23rd. We stayed in the newly renovated two bedroom suite with a mini kitchen. The staff were friendly and the overall appearance of the hotel was bright and clean. They did try to sell us more timeshare, but we declined and they never bothered us again, which was nice. So thank you BGOD Staff.

Since, we came here off season, obviously the outdoor waterparks were closed.
We did enjoy the indoor waterpark and theme park available at Mt. Olympus which was included in our stay here at BGOD. I've included some picture of the hotel and the room we stayed in. I will also be doing a review of Wisconsin Dells, so feel free to read it if you're interested.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the 4th floor it is quieter than the 3rd floor which is connected to the walkway that...

Came to the area on a weekend package to attend a Bluegreen Timeshare presentation. Did not have a choice where we stayed. We were at the Mercy of bluegreen. Paid $149 for the two night package then another $67.50 resort fees and taxes. I guess we got what we paid for. Two nights of being woke up because of rude people in the hallways all night and an awful bed (a cheap mattress on a sheet of plywood on a pine frame). The room was dark and sparse. At first appeared to be clean but then I noticed a hair coming out of one of the cups that was supposed to be used to prepare the disgusting instant coffee. Attempted to use the indoor watermark. The water was cold and the chemicals so strong it burned eyes. While checking in, the clerk tried to get us to sign off saying we had a $200 balance. Took about ten minutes to clear this up. On the next return to Wisconsin Dells I will select the resort and it will not be this one.

Room Tip: Another hotel.

I always knew that timeshares were a rip off so take heed. Do your best not to stay on the 3rd floor where the walk way is to the water park. People are constantly running and being loud thru the hallways and 1 of the bedrooms is right against the wall to the walkway. Very poor sleeping, this room also has the open top of the walls so you hear any noise in the LR and kitchen too. For a 2 br unit, it seemed very small. Also not very happy that they have an outside light on a deck that shines right into the LR and you can't shut it off. Since I was sleeping on the pull out couch I did not appreciate that. I called down to see why I couldn't shut the light off and they said it was on a timer and it would shut off around 11:30pm. Never happened any of the nights we were there. That was another problem, everytime you asked the front desk a question you would get a different answer. Not very impressed with any of it.

I want to start off by saying that this place does not suck. It was clean, close to the amusement/water park and quiet. However, there is no continental breakfast, and the wifi signal is very, very weak.

When I booked this 3 night stay, I was under the impression that my family would be staying in a cabin. When I explained my family to the booking agent, she recommended that we either stay in a townhome (come to find out that THIS is a cabin) or a condo. I explained that privacy was important and she advised that we get a condo, which we quickly realized upon arrival, is no more than a hotel room with a fridge, sink and two burner cook-top stove.
Things got a little more interesting when we checked into our room and noticed that the walls around the second bedroom didn't connect to the ceiling; they were about two feet shorter, as to let in natural light or something. Since my wife and I were traveling with our 2 year old, it would have been nice to be able to put her to bed and not have to worry about waking her up with conversation or TV/ambient light.
Overall, the place was nice, but the fact that there was no restaurant on the property was a pretty big disappointment. This resort is pretty large and to not offer a stable Internet connection or decent meal leaves quite a bit of room for improvement.
I had planned on working in the evenings and was completely unable to connect to the Internet the entire weekend. This was disappointing, but it did free up time to spend with my wife. It seems like it's been forever since we weren't distracted by our phones or work and we were able to relax, drink some beers (Wisconsin Dells Brewing Co-AWESOME!) and talk for hours.

Room Tip: Room 1015 is ground level and is about 20 feet from a large cliff face. At first I was a little disa...

Basically all reviews are accurate. The best part is the resort is onsite of the water and theme park. It's best to either bring your own food and drinks or shop when you get here. Wal-Mart is a 10 min drive away. The food here is seriously over priced and not good or healthy. I figure if you are going to eat unhealthy it should at least taste good.The con is lack of wireless service. Bring a hotspot if you need to use your internet. the couch lets out to an uncomfortable bed. So bring a air mattress if you are planning to count the couch as sleeping space. Other than that, keep in mind this place is family friendly so expect to see and hear kids.
