This trip consisted of a group of ladies who enjoy golf together. The rooms were very comfortable to share and the staff was very friendly. The outside bar area included fire pits for after golf relaxation. The outside hot tub was very relaxing after a day of golfing .

Stayed here last fall and was not looking forward to return visit - service last year was sub-standard and rooms very dated. A complete turn around! Staff seem to be genuinely interested in customer service and rooms now have contemporary feel.

A wonderful place to take grandchildren or meet friends. We are residents of National Village and go often. As nice as there is anywhere. Good service cold beer and good burgers. My grandchildren live there when they visit. A little pricey, but it is a resort destination.
