After seeing so many negative reviews posted after this year's 4th of July weekend, I wanted to provide a different perspective. My family visited the resort over the 4th (2 kids, 2 adults) and had a WONDERFUL time. Yes it was busy, but the staff was so accommodating we barely noticed. Thank you to Jen, Brandon, and all the recreation staff - my kids had a blast! Any request we had (and unfortunately there were many) were accommodated quickly. If food was ordered, it never took more than 20 minutes. Yes the pools were busy, but that goes without saying in the middle of the summer! People should plan accordingly. And the resort put out extra umbrellas on Saturday (7/6) due to the volume of guests/members. The fireworks show was AMAZING! What a wonderful way to end a vacation. We had purchased a s'mores kit for that night, but they didn't turn on the fire pit due to the fireworks crowd. They promptly gave me a credit and then told me to keep the kit! How nice!
The only downside is the room. I find this to be the most perplexing thing about this resort. The rooms (double room - standard) are TINY! The bathroom is extremely TINY! You can barely get one person in and shut the door! I actually hurt my foot trying to shut the door. The fixtures are nice, but the space is so small!
Secondly, I would strongly recommend, if the resort really wants families with kids to spend time (and money) there in summers, get some additional kid-friendly TV stations! Cartoon Network doesn't do it! Where's Nickelodeon or Disney channel?
And when we checked in, there was a spider in our bathtub! Eww! Not sure how long it had been when that room had been cleaned/used... I had brought my own cleaners, so I just cleaned our bathroom and kept rolling...
Yes, Lansdowne is expensive, and yes it was busy over that weekend, but never once did I find the staff overwhelmed or underperforming. Great visit! My kids are already ready to return!
