Disappointing

The rooms were OK but the maintenance was not good, for example, the lock on the door was installed backwards and the lock hardly connected with the door frame. The door was also not a proper fit with space around the edge of the door and the frame where persons could look in if they wanted. The inlet on the lake which fronted the property was polluted and there even appeared to be sewage overflow from the next property into the inlet. A health hazard. There were no warning signs present by the water but in fact peddle boats, etc. The two positive spots were the friendly staff and the good Indian food.

Over rated

Clearly over rated, is not worth the price. Amazing landscape. Beautiful amenities. Room is spacious but bad quality construction in general - facilities work sometimes (AC, TV), WiFi is acceptable when it's working. Bad food in the restaurant. Very nice staff despite the clear lack of preparation.
