We ended up in a Lodge unit rather than a Presidential (we own a presidental at Silverleaf Branson Holiday Hills. The unit did not have a jacuzzi as stated but was a disabled unit and had a different bath configuration. The seat in the bath area had tears on the rubber seat provided.

The timing of our getaway there was perfect as the foliage was changing and the scenery was spectacular. We took many pictures as keepsakes. The resort is close to many areas of activity such as Starved Rock State Park and Utica. We took a trolley ride at Starved Rock and saw much historical and beautiful sites. We would visit again.

The activity center and member registration area was under remodelling, so it wasn't as smooth as usual, however we were directed by security and signs to where we were to go in an acceptable manner.

The indoor pool was closed and that was a disappointment. We feel we should have been notified before our stay that it would be closed.

“Family Fun”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Had my grandkids (10 and 12 year old boys) and we had a great time. They enjoyed the outdoor pool and miniature golf plus the free movie rentals. Also got a chance to go to the nearby indoor pool (Pirate's Cay) which was a blast. The condo was in excellent shape. I hope to go next year with my other grandkids.

Nice resort with lots of amenities. They have "Lodges" and "Presidential's" that you can stay in. If you get one of the lodges try to get on the top (2nd or 3rd) floor, otherwise you will hear the people walking above you or the water running. I can't speak for the presidential's because I haven't stayed in one, only looked at them (very nice and roomy). There is lots of things to do there, you can swim, play mini golf, basketball, volleyball, tennis, shuffleboard, baseball. You can even fish & BBQ. If you have a RV you can even bring that because there is full hookup sites to use for a price. In the summer they have an outdoor pool and horseback riding. They also have an indoor pool too so you can swim in the winter. If you like to ski in the winter you can get some skis in the member services building along with games and DVDs. There is a brand new water park on property that you can use for a price.
