The sunsets over the lake are a treat. I recommend the balcony in the morning. The views of Lake Travis and the hills are lovely. The air is fresh and cool and the quiet is palpable, pierced only by the cheerful calls and coos of various Texas birds...until about 9 a.m. when the motorboats start up.
The kids pool is delightful with fountains and a gradual incline from very shallow to about 3 feet. The waterslide is not tall, but it's fast and a great ride. A good place for families.
Now about those big pans of scrambled eggs in the morning. If they're not powdered, they must add something to make them taste that way. I don't recommend them. The buffet on the weekend is pretty good, with eggs cooked to order. We had mixed reviews for Josey's Restaurant at dinner. The Dr. Pepper quail is a must try and the crab cakes were quite good. The food is pricey. There are other good places to eat nearby. You should try the Grill at Rough Hollow. Not cheap, either, but delicious.
