Our two bedroom condo had a full kitchen, living area with fireplace, small balcony/deck, master bedroom with king bed and jacuzzi tub and second bedroom (which can be a separate lockout) with two double beds and bathroom. It was decorated in kind of a chic western ski lodge theme. All in all the rooms were quite comfortable. However, the odd orientation of the resort to the lake gives most rooms a lovely view of the street instead of the lake. You do get to look at the mountains beyond the street and I suppose they are probably very beautiful in winter, but the street noise is somewhat annoying. There is also not enough parking at the resort so most of the time we were forced to park at their auxiliary parking garage across the street. There is valet parking but they seemed awfully overworked and slow so we didn't partake.
There is a fairly small indoor/outdoor pool (I guess we're spoiled by the giant sized pool at the Embassy Resort in Maui) and it was COLD! Nevertheless, our 11-year-old son enjoyed it and there were always kids to play with.
Lots of other activities are available such as a pool table, bicycles, barbeques, ping-pong tables, games, and organized kids programs. Our son went to movie and game night with some of his new friends and had a great time. They will also arrange side trips and tickets to various attractions usually at a discount.
Two other highlights: There was absolutely no attempt to pull us into a timeshare presentation and the ones we saw people attending seemed very lowkey. But our very favorite feature of the resort was the bathroom toilets equipped with the Sloan Flushmate system! These babies will flush anything! And if you've ever traveled with kids and worried that they'll plug the toilets with huge wads of TP or worse, you can rest easy here!

The Nefertiti has very clean spacious rooms. There is a restaurant next to the hotel but we did not eat there. Again, the staff is very friendly and will help you out with any questions. (That is if you can make yourself understood.)
I recommend this hotel if you can find it!
