Positive Reviews

Excellent private villas

It seems that it was the guests who had booked one of the private villas who were happiest at the resort. They mentioned that they were indeed private, in the sense of being sheltered from the other villas, and also that they were the perfect place for families to stay.

Very good on-site restaurants

While there were one or two complaints, the vast majority of guests had only good things to say about the on-site restaurants. Sidney’s Restaurant was often singled out as being especially good, and offering an interesting menu.

Great activities

In the summer months there are simply an incredible number of activities available on site, on and off the water. Guests traveling at this time mentioned that neither they, nor their children, could possibly get bored.

Negative Reviews

Problems with the pet-friendly policies

While those with pets in tow were very happy with the pet-friendly policies, not all guests were as happy. Some complained that, no matter how well behaved, dogs would bark. Depending on what time of day it happened it was either a mild annoyance or an unpleasant start to their day.

Access control problems

Actually, guests felt that the access was a bit too controlled for their liking. Some mentioned that their party arrived at different times, and in different cars, and each was charged an access fee. Considering that they had spent a good deal on expensive rooms they felt this was a bit much.

Many rooms without lake views

Going by the comments it becomes obvious that many first time visitors were expecting to have a lake view, only to be disappointed on arrival. It seems that even rooms and villas that are facing the lake often have pine groves in front of them that obscure the view.
