tonystldude, Thanks for taking the time to submit a critique about your stay with us. We are very happy to read that you liked your room. We apologize that our bar in the lobby was closed for renovations during your stay. Renovations are never ideal for our guests, but we are confident you will be extremely satisfied with the end product. We will be transitioning to Margaritaville Lake Resort on May 1, 2019. We are very excited about our transition to be a Margaritaville property and would love for you to come back to see the final results.

We only collect a $100 damage deposit if a guest is 18, 19 or 20 years old. Did you book directly through Tan-Tar-A Resort?
