We visited over Labor Day weekend and found a great package that included golf/breakfast/room. We had a great time.
First the Pros: Location, I loved how easy it was to hop on the highway or freeway to get where you needed to be. I loved also the full service resort amenities. We could walk down to the lounge, eat dinner at the restaurant, swim, or golf so we had much to choose from. Value- LIke stated, we found a great package so the value was PERFECT. Check in/Check out was very quick. Making a tee time was a breeze.
Cons: The resort is an older hotel, it was evident in various parts of the resort but again, these are simply aesthetic preferences. Our bed was VERY comfortable. We didn't have the best service in the lounge or restaurant. Both servers were slow and we waited a while for our drinks and food. The fitness room was under construction. You might want to request a room also not too close to the lounge. Our room was very close and we could hear the music but it didn't bother us because we went out for both evenings but if we stayed in, the noise would've been a problem if we were trying to sleep.
All in all, I rated it average. I've been in worse hotels and I've been in better. I certainly wouldn't avoid the resort because my husband and I had a fantastic weekend getaway. The golf course was beautiful and the pool and hot tub were great to relax in. The location is great and I would recommend this to a friend. We had a great time.
