My friends and I stayed in cottage 9, which had 2 double beds, a full kitchen and bathroom. Just the right size for the 4 of us. We brought our own food and drinks since we were not planning on eating at the on-site restaurant. There was a BBQ just outside our cottage in a covered area with a large... More

Who would have expected such a tremendous dining experience in such a remote location. Everything was superb. The appetizers were not only delicious, but a delight to the eye. Our mains were also excellent (we both had the seafood pasta). The ambience is also unique - there must be a woodcarver in the background. The service was also outstanding.

When we got to Ruby Lake, we were told that there would be no breakfast, no Tea, no coffee, Hot water or even water until after 11 o'clock. You have to drive several miles to get breakfast. When we went into our accommodations, we saw standing water several feet beneath our cabin, and therefore our cabin was infested with mosquitoes.... More

Great food! Great service! Great people!! Thank you Aldo et al for a fabulous time as always. We are hoping to see you in Oct. but will definitely spend our 17th summer with you! We love this place! We had nothing but great conversation and visits. We are truly inspired by the surroundings to protect and respect nature!

Had dinner in a half full restaurant on Sunday evening - friendly service but almost an hour between the salad and entree. When the food came , the pasta had virtually no sauce and portions small. Clearly a kitchen problem and oblivious staff.

This is our third visit to the restaurant at Ruby Lake Resort and once again we were blown away. The setting among the lush greenery and lagoon is truly magical ... hummingbirds, butterflies and an oasis of flowers make it even more delightful! Our group of 7 all were very impressed with our meals ... snapper done to perfection, a... More

Two of us shared one of the 20 or so cabins in this peaceful area, overlooking a lagoon and wild life sanctuary. The cabin was well appointed with small kitchen area, two separate bedrooms with ample storage and a spacious living room. The Trattoria Restaurant on the site was welcoming with a good selection of meals, and with a covered... More

We only spent one night but this resort is surrounded in beautiful nature. We stayed in a cottage that was very comfortable. King bed and a small fridge. It was so quiet and we went for dinner at their Italian restaurant on site. Food was delicious and the service was great. Would definitely go back.

Firstly, the restaurant, food & service, were excellent. However, the accommodations leave something to be desired. For me it is about managing expectations. Had I known the cabins were almost identical to the very basic type you'd find at a kids summer camp, I would have been better prepared. I would have brought utensils for barbecuing, glasses, paper towel and... More

Went to the resort on my 20th wedding anniversary. The weather in early June this year was variable with lots of rain but we still had a great time. We had the safari tent and enjoyed it very much. Kept well dry and warm. The balcony overlooking the lagoon was beautiful and a great place for morning coffee. Trails everywhere.... More
