Beautiful facilities, amazing pool area - very close to the RTJ golf club. Only problem was that housekeeping 'forgot' - did not clean our room and make the bed one morning! Other than that one mishap all was well and would recommend staying here if you're golfing the RTJ Golf Trail in the area.

The rooms have been nicely renovated and have a fresh feel. Everyone was very helpful. The pool area could have been nice- it had separate adult and children areas, but there were kids in the adult pool who had parents at the bar. Why bother have adult area if no one enforces? There are several hiking trails around the property,... More

Visiting this type of property for a college visit is not recommended for a mother daughter during winter months. We were too far from civilization, few dining options at hotel, few television/movie choices and no active restaurant or grill to relax while out of the room. I must disclose there was a tornado warning during our visit and we did... More

This hotel is not up to standards for it's price point. The service was spotty. Some VERY helpful, kind folks working. Some VERY unhelpful, rude people working.

The property here is beautiful. The pool and golf course is great. I don't Ever write poor reviews for hotels. I stay in about 50 rooms a year with Hilton and Marriott.

Our kids love the pool! It has water spouts, buckets that dump water, tunnel slide and waterfall. My husband has golfed here on several occasions and really likes the course.

We were on our way home to Florida from Tennessee when we decided to take a backroad. We didn't realize we would pass one of Robert Trent Jones' golf courses where my husband played with some friends a few years back. He wanted me to see the course, so we took the detour.

The resort is about 12 miles from the UA campus for you football folks and about 2 miles from the Robert Trent Jones flubhouse.
