Resort Experience:
This is a nice resort but it did NOT have air conditioning. The rooms were 95 degrees, which made our stay unbearable! My recommendation would be highly recommend in the winter and not recommend in the hot summer. The three fans in the condo did not provide enough relief and it was obvious that the managers know there is a problem but are unwilling to put in air conditioning.

When we did stay in the rooms, we loved the place. The rooms were very large and homey. The TV included a VCR, which was great for watching movies. There was a huge deck (we were on the third floor) with many chairs and a table, which was nice for eating or to unwind. There was also a gas fireplace, which for wintertime would be great. The living room was set up to comfortably seat over six adults. The kitchen was well stocked and wasn't lacking in anything.

The on-site tennis courts were used by us exclusively. I also liked the fact that the condos were in the woods so you had a feeling of being away from it all. Finally, I liked the indoor pool and the hot tub. I believe there was some arcade like games for kids also. I would have preferred some sort of exercise room to complete the recreation building.

We would return to this condo but not when the temperatures are going to be in the nineties!
