We stayed in one of the villas for one week. The villas have a nice layout with large windows facing the water and a huge deck and great views. As mentioned by others the furniture of the villas is quite old and outdated (one lamp not working, loose tiles in the bathroom, ...) but the beds have been comfy so we didn't care much. We only had tiny fridge (dorm room type size) which was quite annoying, just not enough space to store the food for four people!
Towel service did not work only after calling twice!
The front desk staff for the villas and townhouses was unfriendly and kind of rude.
Our biggest problem were the docks. They are old and not well taken care of and there are constantly waves coming in because of all the boat traffic on the lake. If you have a larger boat you will get the docking space facing the lake and the waves will constantly rock your boat and push it against the dock. So you need to bring lots of fenders or you can forget it.
The storage area for the kayaks and row boat war really filthy.
In general, this place appears run down. This would not be an issue for us because it is still a nice location but for the price we paid you have to expect more. The more accurate rating would be 2.5 but lets round up.
