We just got back from a 3 night stay at this wonderful place! We took our 5 year old granddaughter for a fun get-away, and we were not disappointed!! The pool is great, and they always have some activity planned at this resort. We saw "Frozen" on the big screen one night.....had s'mores.....the fun lasts as long as you do!!! LOL It is very close to the strip, but seems very secluded the way it is situated back in the trees:) I would definitely go back, and I highly recommend this place for your stay while visiting Branson!!!

We have stayed here probably 5 times and always enjoy it. The staff is friendly and helpful. The wifi was down in the rooms for a day or so and they made it available in the lounge and gave out
free donuts. Free donuts buy a lot of goodwill. Like all Marriott timeshares, the property is clean and beautifully maintained.

Room Tip: If you are going for more than a day or two, spend the extra money or points and get at least a one...

Clean hotel, friendly staff, happy customers, fantastic pools and setting. Loved everything about this hotel except the wifi, which barely had signal all week, no matter where on the grounds we went...

I was very pleased with this resort! We usually rent condos, cabins etc. and the 1 bedroom villa we rented worked out great for us. They provide paper towels, dish soap and laundry soap. These items are replaced when needed which is very nice! Housekeeping came daily to clean our room which made me feel a bit spoiled because I never get that in a condo rental! The bath tub is nice and big and the kitchen is fully stocked with nice dishes and all the utensils you will need. Our bed was also very comfortable. The staff was extremely nice. The room and grounds were VERY clean. The entertainment staff had plenty of activities scheduled to keep you busy if you liked. We rented movies to play in the room and the cost was cheap and they had many new releases. Indoor pool and outdoor pool were great. We also enjoyed the hot tubs. We got ice cream sandwiches pool side for only 50 cents. Seems like a great price for a nice resort! You MUST rinse your suits after swimming (which I do at home but when on vacation I usually wait until we get home). The chlorine levels didn't seem that high but my swim top and my daughters bottoms ended up in the trash. They actually got "eaten" by the chemicals. I've swam places before where the chlorine seemed much stronger and have never seen anything like this but my fault I guess for not rinsing. We rented a top floor, pool facing room and it was perfect. I would definitely go back and have already recommended this resort to my neighbors!

Spent a week here with our kids - they loved it. Really liked the family-oriented atmosphere here - everyone was very friendly, there weren't any teenagers going crazy, and zero adults hitting too many "beverages." Though it appeared the place was booked solid, the main pool (that looked bigger online, of course) always had empty seats and it wasn't too crowded. There are 2 hot tubs, a kiddie pool, and an indoor pool and hot tub that was usually empty.

The activities were varied for both kids and adults - did some crafts, roasted some smores, tried the wine social. Though small, game/activities room had good choices. Several gas grills to use, too.

Had a 1 BR unit, which served us well. The only issue here - and it is a minor one - the unit itself could use a bit of a refresh. Bathroom and kitchen, and carpeting, were starting to show some age. Internet was fast despite the capacity. Kitchen stocked perfectly and always enjoy having a washer and dryer.

Our unit did not face the pool and instead faced the vacant lot where the property map shows possible additions at some point. If that view bothers you (see picture) ask for one facing the pool, if available. I would suggest NOT getting a room on the 1st floor - all 1st floor rooms have a patio and face the parking lots.

Location very good - off the main strip and was quiet, yet still close to everything. Wish Marriott had a restaurant on site for the days you didn't feel like going out to eat or making something in the room, though.

Only issue we really had was ... bogus room charges. We were charged for items we did not purchase at the pool. Their system for reporting charges is very old - they use carbon copy written receipts that it appears are entered into their system at night. It seems as if anyone could write a bogus room number, or perhaps a clerical error could cause issues. Thankfully the issue is being resolved, but be careful with charging items to the room - carefully look over your bill at the end and save your receipts.

All in all, a great stay. Kids loved it, the pools were great, comfy unit, staff and visitors were friendly, excellent activities for all family members. We'd surely come back.

Room Tip: All 1st floor rooms face the parking lot. If you don't want a balcony facing a vacant lot, chec...

We just got done spending a week there. They have plenty of activities for the family, which we didn't do much with. Very comfortable accomodations. We have teenagers that just wanted to sleep. No noise from the neighbors where we stayed on the top floor. $1.99 DVD rentals from the desk. Also great workout equipment. Spacious rooms.

Room Tip: Top floor.

I cannot say enough about this resort! It is a great family resort! We recently stayed a week with my daughter and her family. 4 nights we had s'mores over an open fire pit ! One night was a hot dog roast! The pool is great for children. This is an example of how nice the staff was - My granddaughter was talking with a staff member and telling her that her birthday was on Saturday and that she would be 6. The evening of her birthday, we came back to our room and birthday balloons and a pink teddy bear was waiting for her! What a thoughtful thing for her to do and the lady even remembered her name on the birthday card! We are owners at Ocean Club in Aruba and have taken our granddaughter to Ocean Club and also Surf Club there. When we asked our granddaughter if she liked Willow Ridge, she said she liked it "better than Aruba"! I think that says it all! We definitely will go back!
