We have stayed at this resort five times now and every time we leave the kids can't wait to get back!! The food was amazing, the staff was super friendly, and even though we stayed there for a week we ran out of time to do all the activities offered! I have three kids and there are things to do that interest all age levels. As a mom and dad we REALLY appreciated the AM and PM organized and supervised youth activities for the kids that let us have kid-free time! My daughter learned how to water-ski the first day she took lessons and two days later she was on a wakeboard! The kids all found friends to hang out with and even write to them throughout the school year. We love how this resort puts family first. There is a talent show for the kids, a staff show, dance, plenty of water toys (we kayaked, paddle boated, sailed almost every day!) We played tennis every day and all of us even took private tennis lessons. The snack bar was our kid's favorite pastime with shakes being their favorite item on the menu. Ask the cook to make a pancake in the shape of an ice skate, a guitar, and a drum set? They will do it! Our picky eaters had plenty to choose from and always left with full bellies. My husband and I also took advantage of the 3 mile run/walk every AM with their resort pontoon taking us back to the resort along with coffee (and yummy sticky buns on Saturday.) We each got a free shirt to prove it! One of my favorite parts is in each cabin there is a journal where each family can write about their stay. I loved reading all the entries and even got teary-eyed. There were families that had taken trips to Jamaica, Aspen, England and they said the only place they have been to that their whole family wanted to go back to was FAIR HILLS!!! I'm sure they hear this all the time but the BEST way to describe this resort is it's the closest thing to the resort Dirty Dancing as it comes. LOVE, LOVE , LOVE it!!!!
