- Tons of summer and winter family outdoor activities
The rooms were super accommodating, cozy and roomy. Hope to go back again next year. The indoor/outdoor pool was very cool, kids loved it. There was a room we could rent to have a team party. Worked out perfect. Great little town square also!
I didn't know what to expect when we arrived here since someone else did the planning. I was pleasantly surprised by the rooms. They were condos equipped with everything I needed. The pool looked really nice but I didn't get a chance to use it since we were on the go so much. The staff was helpful and friendly.
