Great place!
Loved everything about this place... Looks, food, beach, bar, etc...

Beautiful place in a great little town.
A beautiful place, but getting run down due to lack of staff. The hotel is in desperate need of a good pressure washing outside. Our porch was covered with dead bugs. We could only get house keeping for our 4 day stay upon request and that was only to get clean towns and take out the trash. The staff were pleasant. The lake and hotel are beautiful, but heading for trouble if they don’t more staff to take care of the place. A great place for families.

Fun family getaway!
Really enjoyed our stay. The weather was amazing. The resort was packed. They are trying their best to get the rooms turned over but felt bad for housekeeping bc they were extremely backed up. The room was nice, could use a bit of updating. Our toddler loved the whirlpool bathtub. The pools were nice enough, definitely worth checking out. We absolutely loved the private beach access. Though it was crowded, it was still clean and nice. The restaurant on site was pretty good too. Really nice stay for a family with younger children. Would definitely come back and would also recommend to family and friends.

4/10 Fair

Overall, the stay was disappointing. The staff was friendly but the check in was chaotic. The room was clean, loved the bathtub but it was not was what we expected. From the description and pictures of our "suite" we thought we were getting a bedroom and separate living room, It was just a regular room, which was dark and the hallway often smelled like sewage.

Room Not what I signed up for
Well I booked a room that was suppose to have a garden view and ended up having an alley view. The room was outdated and the bed was uncomfortable. The grounds outside are beautiful and beaches are clean n water clear. Im not sure who’s fault the room mix up was but between n the Reservation manager talking for 2 hours n wasting my entire day Im not sure if the trip was worth it.

6/10 Good

Our room was clean. Bed and bedding very uncomfortable. Incessant and rather loud droning from nearby race track quickly became tiresome. The Otto restaurant on premises was not busy but food took way too long to arrive, was terrible, and waitstaff was not attentive.
