This was our second stay at Baker's Sunset Bay. Our first stay in the summer 2012 was fantastic. This year was good, although the weather and ground floor room made this trip a little less enjoyable. Some may like the ground floor room with a patio and quick access to the beach, but we didn't like the fact that our screen patio door did not latch and the lack of privacy.
We must have had the same room as the person who reviewed on June 14 since we had the same problem with the alarm clock/lights flickering when one sat on the bed. I found the outlet cover broken behind the bed so the mattress was directly touching the electric outlet, which didn't make me feel too safe. We would have switched to the other bed but we remembered that the AC unit on the outside wall blows directly on the bed, which was annoying due to noise and drafts. We reported the broken outlet cover and lack of latch on the sliding door within an hour of check-in. They fixed the outlet cover right away but did nothing about the door latch. Even after the outlet cover was replaced, the clock radio kept clicking on and off so we finally unplugged it. We also experienced a power outage in the room when all we had on was one light. They quickly remedied that problem as we just tripped a breaker, but it made us wonder if it was related to the outlet problem.
We loved the free kayaks, the outdoor pool, hot tub and campfire Kevin. Our weekend was quite cold so we appreciated the indoor park pass to the Kalahari. The beach setting, kayaks and access to the lake will keep us coming back since we normally just need the room to sleep and shower.
We will return and refer to others looking for an alternative to the big waterparks, but will certainly request an upper floor room with a balcony. I would love to see them reconfigure the rooms so the small table is next to the AC unit, and perhaps that would alleviate the issue of the electric outlets being directly behind the mattresses.
