Always enjoy staying here for a conference. It's a terrific set up. Special mention this time on the steak in restaurant, one of the best I have had in awhile. Staff are always friendly. Nice place to stay. Rooms are good. Always the best indicator would I stay again ? Sure.

Disabled room. This was made special due to the staff who looked like they enjoyed coming to work! The scenery is beautiful. The only downside is that the rooms overlook other rooms so privacy is an issue. Close your curtains!

Awesome place, loved every bit of it! Only down turn was the line up at check in/check out as there wasn't enough staff/counters open. Pool is very nice, big and clean. The villas are very comfy and spacious, we also had a nice view over looking the lake. The bar in the main foyer was a nice spot to hang...
