Bachelorette Party 9-9-17
We checked into the 2 room superior suite for a bachelorette party. It was the most beautiful suite I have ever booked, the check in was super easy and Lori at the front desk was amazing. She was helpful kind and very pleasant. We had supper at the Water's Edge Restaurant located in the hotel. The food was amazing, however our server was slightly distracted as he was super busy with multiple tables where as other servers were not as busy. The food was prepared correctly and the sides were delicious, a bit pricey, but we knew that going into the place, as there are menu's located through out the hotel with the prices listed. The pool was very clean and not overly busy when we went. The staff was very friendly and professional. The water slides are a blast even at our age( adults). The only thing I was disappointed about was that the outside pool area was not open until 1pm. I wanted to sun bathe at 11am and was unable to do so until 1pm. The night life even after peak season was amazing. Our group of 10 woman had such an enjoyable time out on the town. I would for sure stay at this location again.!!

Very Good8.0
great hotel for families
Nice place to stay for families. My only complaint is that it was not immediately clear to us that we had access to the waterpark for our entire stay. We missed an evening of using the pool and water park because it was not written in the hotel guide that we could use the pool during our entire stay. Our front desk person did not tell us either. It is a minor complaint since we figured it out the next morning when visiting the waterpark desk. We ate at the hotel for supper and breakfast and had great service. Wish that the breakfast was continental, but we still enjoyed our donuts with a great view of the lake. We would go back.
