Just got back from a one night stay over Mothers day weekend. They will tell you that you can ot book just one night but if you get the right person, you can! Also the online booking does not allow a family of four in a standard room - just call the resort and ask it is plenty big. There are queen beds and two day beds with a divider so you have some privacy. I would not pay more for a Deluxe lakeview as they are just like a regular hotel room with 2 beds right next to one another.
The property is well kept and there are activities such as bumper cars, mini golf, boats and indoor playground. However, we felt liek we were in a sleepaway camp and after one day there was not much to do. The whole atmosphere is a little cheesy, I kept expecting Patrick Swayze to teach dance lessons!
We barely saw anyone at the activities. I guess it is much better in the summer. You would be able to use the lake and outdoor pools and the activities would be packed with people. We kept expecting someone liek an activities director to be around rounding people upt o do stuff but we were kind of on our own.
The food was ample but kind of salty and tasteless.
I have to say the show was wonderful, very impressed but children under 7 were not allowed. They did have a magic show for the kids so you kind of had to choose which one to do. We wound up getting a babysitter - Kristen, who was great and she took the kids to the magic show so we could enjoy the adult show. For the money, we felt hey should of offered an alternative. If they are going to restrict the age for the evening show then they should offer a suoervised kids program. Not everyone felt comfortable nor had the $ to hire a babysitter and therefore the adult show was half empty. A shame since they put so much time and effort into it.
While we had a good time it is not worth the $600 we spent. for that price per night we could easily go to FL or the caribbean or a nicer family resort.
