Not bad not great

Under construction/renos. Some rooms with leaking ceilings which we had to walk past as their doors were left open. Construction debris in the pool. Weak hot tub jets. Ceiling fan in our room didn't work but they fixed it when we stepped out. Noisy floors, we could hear the suite above us stomping around at 12am. Restaurants weren't bad though and they had a pianist in the lobby.

Not quite a resort

View, location and restaurant were great. Front desk staff and housekeeping were friendly. However, included breakfasts were worth the pricey stay only if you like overcooked scrambled eggs. Other features, like plumbing and wireless internet service were sub-par and not what I expect from a 'resort'. Impossible to take a decent shower unless all other rooms were empty, as every flush, tap, or water use by other guests turned the water temperature from ice to scalding to ice again every few seconds. Wireless was only barely functional and often could not connect; got a stronger signal from the RV park a kilometre away.

Recommended stay

Front desk, housekeeping and restaurant staff all friendly and helpful. Stayed a week and considered staying another week but found a resort that offered kitchenettes so moved. Great view of the water from a 2nd floor room with patio doors to a small patio. Very nice grounds. Parking security could be a concern as it somewhat separated from the hotel. Located a block off of the main highway which made it quiet. Make sure and bring your binoculars!
