    This was a disappointment. Check in was good and went good. Our room was nice and ready to go. But the issue was they are short staffed. We stayed for two days and pool and water park area was never open. Part of paying for the room was two passes for the pool area and we never even got to use them. We also ate the restaurant and the food was not great either. Some of the food was burnt. Not sure I would stay again here. We did feel bad for the staff. They were nice as you can expect with shortage of people.

    Nice resort, great restaurants

    Over all stay was nice, but just a few things were a bit unnerving. 1) Six light bulbs were burned out when we arrived, which should’ve been noticeable to the maids. Only 2 of the 4 lights over the bathroom vanity worked, one of the 2 bar lights worked, two lamps had burned out bulbs. 2) Old coffee and filter in the coffee maker when we went to make coffee the next morning (ick!) 3) we had 4 people in our suite - three of which were women, but they would not allow us more than one thin and dingy towel each. We even offered to pay more for more towels. 4) we asked for more extra bedding because we were cold, but were told we could get more bedding ONLY if we exchanged our existing bedding. (What?!) Plus points: They allow dogs!! Yay! The suite was big and comfortable. The pool was fun and big - indoor and outdoor. Nice staff The restaurants/bars were great! Beautiful views!

    This property is billed as a luxury lakeside resort. It is anything but. It starts with the surly and unhelpful front desk staff and continues with the lack of housekeeping services, complete with trash and dirty towels in the hallways all day. When we booked the room I asked about docking our boat. I was told there was a launch "next door" (turns out it's a public launch a half mile down the road) and we were welcome to use their dock. When we checked in we were warned against that, told that drunken patrons of their bar routinely vandalize and steal from boats. We were forced to park our boat in an unsecured and unlit dirt field. It is impossible to get local channels on their streaming only TVs, so we missed out on watching the Field of Dreams baseball game. Our room was bare bones and tiny with paper thin walls. We could hear everything our neighbors said. But the real kicker was that the outdoor pool area was shut down for most of our visit. We had beautiful weather and wanted to hang out by the pool. We couldn't because they didn't have enough staff, which judging from cistomer reviews has been going on all summer. They actually told us that they were waiting for housekeeping staff to finish cleaning rooms to see if they'd be willing to stay and staff the pool. Somehow having African immigrants who don't speak English serve as lifeguards at a busy "water park" open to the public doesn't seem like a smart idea. This place has a beautiful location, but it's a hot mess.

    The trash at bracco lower bar area was not cleaned once, it sat for 2 days and I cleaned it up finally because it was an eye sore. We didn’t have enough liens either. No towels in pool area etc.
