My family and I came here for the weekend. We have never stayed at this resort and our standards were set fairly high for what we got. I can't say it was bad, but there were many aspects that were just O.K. We arrived 2 hours early for check-in but the room was ready which was great! We had a room right on the beach with a waterfront view. What I liked about our particular building was that (on our floor at least) there was no room that didn't have a waterfront view. That space was made a conference area. The rooms are nicely renovated too. However seeing as we payed close to $300 bucks for the room per night it was not nearly as dressed up as it should have been. The things that came with that $300 bucks a night was the room, 2 persons breakfasts, pool, a part of the beach, and 3 complimentary Tassimo pods in your room (with machines in the lobby of our building). We payed $20 extra to go to the part of the beach that had the water toys (trampoline, slide pad, iceberg, etc.) and for canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards. Being a family fun resort I think these things should have been covered in the $300. There was a ton more to do there, we just didn't have that kind of money. Moving on, the resort is a HUGE place. When my family and I went walking we almost got lost looking for a path to the main lodge. We ended up having to backtrack because we ended up on the main road. I blame the map that we were given for this as it wasn't terrifically marked. The resort land is very steep too. The beach and the main lodge (with the dining area) are at opposite ends of the land which means it is a very long walk to get from one place to the next. Too much climbing for a family resort. On the bright side, there are 4 pools around the resort. At least 1 is not far from each room. The food was great! We had a choice between buffet and a menu selection. The Eclipse restaurant provided dinner and breakfast for my family and I and both were super good. We had lunch at Maples grill and that was fantastic too. On another note, when we accidently left our room key in our room the staff were great about providing us with a new on after just a show of ID. The resort at night is extremely dark at night and could definitely benefit from adding more lights. Overall I thought the resort was O.K but not great. I may stay here again but it depends on my alternatives. Any more questions, ask below. There is a lot more to say but too much to say for everyone.
