The renaissance of this massive property right on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene is one of the reasons CDA has become such a family-friendly getaway. With 330 guestrooms, three different restaurants, an outstanding spa, and water sports and activities galore, you could spend your entire vacation at this property and never experience it all. A majority of rooms have a marina or lake view, with views of the mountains in the others, which is equally beautiful. Private balconies, complimentary Wi-Fi, in-room video games and movies, and coffee makers and mini-bars are available in a number of accommodations.
From paddle boarding and boat rentals to kayaking and parasailing, activities are all available on the dock of this resort that is equally famous for its mile-long floating boardwalk around the marina and property. The Resort Plaza Shops, adjacent to the hotel, has a fun toy emporium with a 6-foot tall K’nex Ferris Wheel and a mini merry-go-round for little ones to ride.
A fine dining restaurant allows parents to have a nice evening while kids are looked after in the VIP kids program, open to those 2 and older. The Dockside Restaurant is known for its healthy selection of salads and other entrees, but it’s the massive dessert selection that really keeps people happy. Kids can build their own cupcakes at the table.

I've had this resort on my bucket list of Golf Holes to play for many years and 2 weeks ago I had the chance to play it!! Not only the Island Green but the whole golf course is a great place to play. The Hotel is outstanding with service that is over the top, people are extremely friendly and helpful. Good selection of restaurant's and food was good.

Room was never cleaned on a 3 day stay, talking to the staff is like talkimg to a wall. At the Dockside restaurant I ordered a Med,-Well steak, I was served 1hour later after the rest of my party had eaten, and the steak was refrigerator cold in the center an was not even cooked enough to be rare. the baked potato was raw. The waiter didn't know what to do. Everyone in my party was done so I left with them. At the resort they do not respond to complaints.
