Our room was very nice. You could tell it was an old resort (seemed to be 70's architecture), but had been updated to modern tastes. The furniture and decor was very nice and stylish (not typical tacky hotel grade furniture). All the buildings I saw at the resort are 2 story so I suggest trying to get a 2nd story room because ours had a cathedral ceiling, which isn't possible on the 1st floor.
We were only there for one night as an anniversary treat. We spent one day at the spa, which I thought was very nice. Honestly, I've never been to a spa (but my wife has been to many). I thought the atmosphere was extremely relaxing and the service was great (hotel staff were everywhere you looked if you were ever in need of help). I got a fantastic men's facial and my wife got a massage. My wife, who is experienced with spas, agreed with me that this was an excellent one.
We ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurants. For dinner we ate at the more casual of the 2 dinner restaurants The Fontana Grill because there seemed to be more choices on the menu. They happened to have a prime rib special that night that was excellent and at a great price. Our dinner came before our salads, but when we alerted our waitress they were brought out immediately and she told us the round of drinks we just ordered would be on the house.
We ate breakfast at The Waterfront bar/restaurant. Actually, the interior of the restaurant was being renovated when we were there so they had tables set up out in the hall/lobby outside the restaurant (outside seating was also available, but it was too chilly that morning). The food and service was very good at breakfast as well.
Overall this was a nice relaxing anniversary getaway. No complaints.
