“Much needed getaway for my wife and I!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Great experience! Every one from check in desk to manager was friendly and helpful. They all seemed to take personal interest in making our stay enjoyable! The newly remodeled room was impeccably clean! We ate at the Tradewinds restaurant inside the resort and it was amazing! We will definitely be going back!

My husband and I planned a weekend getaway and got much more than we bargained for. Sarah at the front desk was swamped, but still had a smile on her face and made us feel welcome. She took extra time and answered all of our questions in detail. Harry and the staff in the dining room were very accommodating and dinner was fabulous (I highly recommend the Prime Rib). Liz took good care of us. We actually made some new friends in the lounge and plan to meet them there again this summer. It was a refreshing, relaxing break from our hectic routine. The resort is so beautiful. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Lake side offers a private balcony which I loved!

Thank you, I am very happy that you two had a blast! I'm also glad you chose to have our Signature Prime Rib as it is our #1 seller in the Tradewinds Dining Room. It is also appreciated that you would take the time to recognize some of our tama members for their service, hospitality and most importantly their positive attitude.

We'll look forward to the pleasuring of welcoming you back again soon.

I want to say our recent stay here was great Sara at the front desk was so courteous and she had a line up of us checking in and did a marvelous job of handling us efficiently. She is an asset to your company. Harry the restaurant manager was great making sure our meals were what we wanted. All in all it was great and planning another stay there in the Summer. Thank you Fourwinds for your hospitality.

We stayed during the off season. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and met all of our needs. We ate at both restaurants and had the breakfast buffet. The bacon wrapped scallops were excellent!! Our room had a nice view and the bed was nice and comfy. I'm looking forward to coming back here in the summer and doing some outdoor activities here. Great place!!!

Thank you for the review, Allison. As you can see the resort is the perfect destination anytime of the year. We're happy to see that you chose to dine in our restaurants and experience not only our breakfast buffet, but our "new" steak & seafood menu in Tradewinds. I have to agree, the Bacon Wrapped Scallops are a favorite by all who order them.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

A group of 6 couples went down and stayed to celebrate Valentine's Day. The rooms are emaculant as well as the entire hotel. Went swimming, hung out and relaxed. Had dinner at 8:00 in the main dining room. The service and food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed the dinner and said the food was awesome. Melissa was our server and she did a great job serving all of our meals, they came out at the same time. She was on top of it. Thank you Melissa. We will definitely go back.

Thanks for the review, Sandy! Even the weather didn't hinder all the couples who made their way to Fourwinds to celebrate Valentines. We are delighted to hear how happy you and your group were with the resort and your experience in the Tradewinds Restaurant.

I hope your all planning to visit again this summer? Please let me know if I can assist with any arrangements.

We had a wonderful time last night. Dinner was amazing! Rosemary was just cool and so helpful. She knew we were going swimming and we forgot a room key and she brought it to us. The swimming pool was warm and wonderful! We want so say a special thanks to Sarah at the front desk for helping my son with some with eye drops.

Great price, wonderful service, and the bar and grill in the hotel was exceptional! The seafood we ordered was of GREAT quality unlike many places, also our waiter Harry was exceptionally nice and helpful to us. Being new guests in this hotel he made us want to return. Being a manager in the service industry and dealing with many people makes you very prone to notice exceptional staff and this hotel has it. TWO THUMBS UP!! We most definitely will return!
