“Nice place for a family vacation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Our family spent the weekend there and had a great time. They have a decent indoor pool, 2 water slides (1 for little kids, one for bigger kids), kayaks/fishing boats that you can use for free, a playground, fire pit (you will meet some interesting people out there), arcade and a few other perks.

The ONLY thing I didn't like was that our room felt a bit "cramped". We had a queen deluxe suite and there wasn't a whole lot of room.

Room Tip: Shop on line, you can find their rooms for more than 1/4 off if you look around a bit.

Stayed in the Canyon Condo. It was nice and clean. Lots of towels. Kitchen well equipped.
Beds and pillows comfortable. The pictures on the web site made it look bigger than it was. But it was enough room for 4 adults and 2 children.

As a travel agent, I usually stay at nicer 4 star resorts, but we got an incredible deal here, so I went with proper expectations for a 3 star. The front desk was friendly and check in was smooth. With the special deal, we had a room facing the parking lot, so we didn't spend anytime looking out. The room was a good size. The TV was ancient, something grandma would own, and had a fair number of channels, though the cartoon network was blurry, which was a disappointment to the kids. The hotel gave us complimentary popcorn and soda, which was nice. It also came with an iron/ironning board, nice hangers, hair dryer, frig and microwave, which was nice. The place was clean and in decent condition. The bed spread was the old fashioned kind, not like the nice runners in a 4 star, but again, this is a 3 star resort. The towels were small and thin, but white. Only shampoo and small bars of soap were provided, no conditioner, body wash or lotion. There is no drying line in the bathroom. Hotel walls were a bit thin, but we were still able to sleep fine. There is a small pool with slide and hot tub, which the kids had fun in. Swim towels are provided but again, small and thin. There is a fire pit outside for camp fires and a game room where they sell snacks too. We didn't get around to visiting either of them. Overall, we had a good time. For the price, it was a great deal, as it came with 4 tickets to the Kalahri Indoor Theme Park. Go with proper expectations for a 3 star, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable.

I was able to snag an online discount on a one night stay. It included free passes to the Kalahari Amusement Park and there were other discounts and freebies. The room was not top of the line but that didn't matter. I didn't have lakeview as the reservation said I would, but for the price it was a great snag for one night during the time of year that you need to reserve two nights. The campfire was nice to hang out by that night. I wasn't there for campfire songs and that was long over with. We were having drinks and chit chatting. Then lots of drunk people showed up and it was pretty mellow until the guards showed up and they were nice even though things were getting loud. Someone who wasn't part of my party smarted off to them about being rent-a-cops and I was impressed with how the staff member maintained their composure. Nice sand beach, indoor and outdoor pool, access to the water and they allow pets. If you have pets that you need to take along on your vacation this is definitely the place for you. We just wanted a place to hangout after a concert and this place was just right at a off-peak price for one night. Remember this isn't the Wilderness or any of the other modern resorts but I doubt as far as mom and pop resorts go that this one can be beat at this price.

Room Tip: Decide whether you want to be top floor or ground level when making your reservation.

We went for a quick weekend getaway and since they didn't have a hotel room for us for both nights of our stay they gave us a kitchenette right on the beach with two bedrooms. It was perfect. We loved the view of the lake, fed the ducks and enjoyed a campfire with the other guests. Our 13 year old son had fun in the pool and game room. The staff was very kind and accomodating. We'll be back!

Room Tip: were always all about a water view and this is on a beautiful cove

The property has a relaxing environment. The staff was very courteous. The grounds are clean and well maintained. We loved the fact we could bring our dog. Unit G or 510 is a great unit to rent since it has a full kitchen and two separate bathrooms and bedrooms. We are definitely planning on returning.

I'm not sure why other reviews are negative. Obviously this is not a brand new resort, but it is well maintained and we had a wonderful stay. I will suggest it to my family and friends.

Disappointed. I was not expecting a luxory resort, but i did expect the minimum of amenties. The towels are very small and most of them you can see through. If you could not see through them, then they had previous customer's hair on them. Pulled back the sheets on both of my beds, that were in the room and both beds had someone elses hair in them. Many stains on the floor that I can only asume were made from pet that stayed in the room. The room smelled of old wet dog. I went to the store to buy an air freshener and it barely took care of the smell.

I'm sorry your stay was not satisfactory and I apologise. If only you had made us aware of the problems you had, we would have done everything in our power to make you more comfortable. We would have gladly moved you to a different room, upgraded you, changed your sheets, etc. As far as the towels go, we do use a very nice quality towel and I've not had complaints about the size of our towels.
Again, I am sorry we were not able to meet your expectations.
Sincerely,
Dawn Baker
Owner / General Manager
