“Nice place for the family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Just stayed 2 nights at Tanglewood Resort and we loved it. It is a good location for anyone around the Dallas area that want's to get away but stay close to home.

During our stay we enjoyed both restaurants, horseback riding, and a jet ski rental from our package.

Very nice lake and i've heard it's good for fishing as well. We will have to try that out on our next visit here!

The reason for the he trip was cor my wife to enjoy the Tranquility Spa. My wife's comments that it was great, awesome and well worth it.Now lets talk about the Resort. The reservation process was good and from there it went done hill fast. Check in was very very delayed well past quoted time. The Barnacles restaurant was good except the service was awful. I dont have the time or energy to write. Great location getting wasted because they need someone to take time to give service and have pride.

The room was okay but needed upgrading. Had to request for working keys two times. Was to receive champagne upon arrival and had two request for it twice also. The pools were dirty and grounds needed cleaning. Dinner Saturday night at the restaurant was a nightmare waiting for service - hour & 45 minute just to eat. On the bright side the local spa was excellent.

Upon our arrival, the front desk lady was extremely helpful and friendly. We thought this is a great beginning of our 2 day trip, but boy, we were wrong. The front desk was the ONLY friendly service we encountered during our stay. The hotel room was out dated, the pool was much smaller than expected, limited activities for adults and since the resort charge a service fee on everything (and everytime) you purchased something, no customer service.

We dined at the Commodore Room, the food was ok, but for that price, I did not think it was worth it. Overall, this is our first and last time, we will not return to this resort.

I booked a "luxurious" villa at $199 a night. Let me just say I grew up on lakes and realize I wouldn't be getting 5 star resort luxury. But this is ridiculous for the price. The TV is tiny and old with horrible reception. There's not even wash rags or hand towels in the bathroom. The rooms are extremely out dated and need to be updated. If I'm going to be charged a high rate at least have a functional TV in the room.

We stayed in villa 3 and had a good time as always when we go. The food was okay. They took out the hot tub that was very upsetting. Our room was ok the maid service was spectacular my son dropped and broke a glass the lady happened to be in the hall and cleaned it right up. We rented a boat for a good price and they printed directions at the front desk.
