"Great Time"
May, 2018 NEW
This is a really nice resort. The people are friendly and the resort is very nice clean and comfortable. However, we did have to pay more for the splashatorium entrance and were only able to use it the first night we checked in, it was closed for remodel the rest of the time. I was not very pleased with this. I was very upset having been charged for something we could not use when the splashatorium was the reason we chose this resort. Would have given five stars had this not happened

Tip: Make sure splasatorium is open before paying the extra for entrance

"Would not stay here again"
April, 2018
Got there at 5:45 to check in, didn’t have any clean rooms. Had to wait for a phone from them after driving 6 hours. Room had an awful smell, bed was uncomfortable, pillows were small and lumpy. Bathtub was filthy and the “splashtorium” was across the street. We stayed 3 days, I thought the tub was stained. On the last morning I wanted to relax in the tub instead of take a shower, thats when I discovered it wasn’t stained and just needed to be cleaned. So gross

We came through for a one night stay on our way from here to there. The resort has a lot to offer that we did not use. But our rooms were dated, even seeming a bit dreary. Certainly woodwork and doors need some attention, but my guess is the place is old enough for a make-over. Please note the beds were clean and comfy.

We own a timeshare with Welks, but didn’t stay on property for this visit. When you’re an owner, you can use the facility with a day-pass, so we did that. The pool, slide, splash areas, activities center, customer service, and staff just can’t be beat. It shows in every detail that their first priority is customer care. They always go above and beyond.

"Overall Good "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed June 17, 2018 NEW
Our family stayed in June, for a week in the hotel. Cons: The rooms are much smaller (double queen) than we are used to. Dated and show minimal wear and tear. Fridge stunk and didn’t work, 3 phone calls and 1 in person stop at the desk and they finally took care of it. Sounded like they were overwhelmed with problems from other guests. Housekeeping doesn’t seem to clean your room. We were told they do new arrivals first, and if the sign on your door is on at all they probably won’t stop back. 6 nights and they came twice I believe? Once after a complaint. The days they did come they left an envelope for a tip! Breakfast isn’t included. No microwave. There was noise from other rooms and the hallway, which we expected at this price range. Pros: Outside of being small and in need of an update, the room was fine. Air conditioning worked well. Bathroom counter was large. Staff at the front desk were friendly and ready to help. The pool! It’s wonderful. The water slide is fast. There’s a volleyball net in the inside pool. Big hot tubs inside and out. Activities! Every few hours there’s something going on. Hula Hoop contests for kids, archery, cupcake wars, so many fun things. Some do cost to participate in, others do not. It did feel a bit like they could’ve offered more activities for free, to be honest. Some fees were questionable! The outside area of the pool has a splash pad that offers giant checkers, water guns, a bucket dump and table tennis. We were all well entertained and relaxed, perfect mix. Next to the pool there’s an air conditioned activity building. Giant bean bags, checkers, always something to do. There also a room with pool and foosball. Wonderful! You can order food and have it delivered to the pool, they include a tip in the price so pay attention to that. We double tipped at first. Food is good and prices decent, especially the kids menu. Overall a great time, the pool area made the experience a good one for us. If we would’ve been wanting to hang out in the room for a stretch of time it would’ve been hard.

From the moment of checkin to the checkout, the staff ensures that guests have a wonderful experience. They go above and beyond to do whatever will be helpful. The units were spacious and stocked with all the basics. We also enjoyed sitting on the decks. We definitely will return!
