Beautiful Resort. Wonderful Customer Service. Could use some attention to detail in rooms. My family stayed over the entire Thanksgiving long weekend November 2016. Enjoyed everything about the resort from the restaurant choices to arcade to lobby decor. Main reason for a 4 is that the room was a little wanky. One of the king size beds had an obvious... More

Great location, but the resort facilities are rather average with a convoluted layout. Very nice and helpful staff. I recommend the spa for the services and nice staff, not necessarily for the spa facilities.

The staff was very nice, except for the older Bartender at the main bar, he was excessively short. The front part of the main building is very modern, but the rest of the resort from the architecture to the suites (BLDG E) is very dated. There simply isn't enough available/open/closed early in the off season to make me visit outside... More

The place is pretty dated. Everything was closed when we stayed there. The room was a little smelly so had to open all the door and windows to get fresh air in.Had a room by the Sunset point which was the only good thing about this trip.
