The club house area that has the front desk is a beautiful inviting building. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful when arriving. I have asked for an early check in in advance and our room was ready when we arrived about 11:30am. At the time of check-in, I asked for a high chair which was delivered to our room later that afternoon. The club house area also contained an indoor pool, and indoor children’s pool. There was a children’s play area with many children’s activities, a den with a fireplace, and a game room in the building too.
Outside of this building and in the middle of all the condos is a huge outdoor pool area that also has a children’s pool. During the summer they also serve drinks and ice cream in the outdoor pool area.
We rented a two-bedroom, two-bath condo. Our condo was very clean and nicely furnished. The master bedroom had a king bed with a private bathroom. This bathroom only had a shower though. The living area had nice neat furniture and has a sleeper sofa. There was a dining area with a bench seat on one side and chairs on the other. The kitchen was fully furnished with a dishwasher and all new appliances and nice dishes. There was also a washer and dryer both in the room. The second bedroom had two queen beds and the second bathroom was a huge full bathroom with a tub shower unit. There were three TVs: one in each bedroom and one in the living room. The living room also had a nice sized balcony that overlooked the outdoor pool area. They delivered a newspaper to our door every morning.
Editor's Note: This property was formerly Marriott's Horizons At Branson.

We stayed at the Marriott Horizons Vacation Club (a condo resort, but rooms can be rented nightly). Horizons was nice, but don't be deceived by "villas"; rooms and condos are in buildings. I recommend getting at least the two-bedrooms; otherwise, there's not much room, and your TV/mini-kitchen is right there at the foot of the bed (not appealing).
Our one-room was not big enough (queen bed and pull-out sofa), and our bath only had a shower. There's an extensive outdoor pool area (closed at our visit) but a wonderful indoor pool and hot jet spa. Outside, there are grills available. A play area is only open until 5pm, and since we were out during the day, we did not get to use it. A gym and gathering room with movie viewing (at check-in a schedule is provided) are available. There is no on-site dining or groceries, but Krispy Kreme, Denny's, etc., are not far away.
I recommend the Pirate Cove Mini Golf (walking distance) for entertaining kids. The staff was not very friendly on my visit (from the front desk to the maids), but I feel it was due to lack of training/experience and hope this has been resolved. Overall, I recommend the place and will try it again in a larger "villa".
