“Going Downhill”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

This was our third consecutive year staying here. Our expectations were set in the two previous years. The hotel shows all the signs of being complacent and poorly-managed. While the rest of the world (and most other resorts) are using more internet-driven devices, the Manteo's network is unusably slow. It was bad two years ago, worse last year, and this year was literally unusable. The pools were so busy that it was not possible for our family to sit poolside for an entire day! There is no security policing bad behaviour. This was consistent rowdy "boys trip 20-somethings" screaming obscenities in the kids pool in hearing range of most of the condos and the childrens' play areas and teens playing loud basketball at midnight. If you have children under 15, don't bring your family here any more. Housekeepers are too busy gossiping and talking about anything but work to remember to wash floors, replace towels, etc. This could be and was a great spot. I anticipated bringing my family back every year and we never could get enough and did not want to leave. This year, we could not wait to get out of there.

If you have a large group and want to share meals together,Smack Dab lounge and restaurant cant accommodate large groups. You will have to make alternate arrangements to eat together or go somewhere else. Eldorardo and Cabana Bar and Grill took 16 of us last minute.

Recently spent two nights here over a weekend. There was a lot going on in Kelowna this particular weekend, but you would not know it staying at the Manteo resort. It is located on the quiet side of lake. A lot of construction going on around the resort area, with the road being redone as well. But we were gone to wineries all day so did not bother us that much. The resort itself is nice and clean. The washrooms are tiny though. Barely enough room to close the door once stepping in. The sink is outside of the washroom itself which is a bit annoying. The beds are comfortable, but wish there was just a little more counter space by the mini fridge. Since there is a mini fridge and coffee maker, a microwave would have been nice too, but then again, where would they put it. We had a view of the parking lot, and come early morning, had the pleasure of listening to a large bus as well as a delivery truck, to wake us up....at 7 am. (Not so nice when you just went to bed at 3 am).

The resort next door, The Eldorado, has a wonderful seafood brunch on Sundays, highly recommend it. Sitting on their dock to eat is very relaxing.

We also had the breakfast buffet at the Manteo on the Saturday morning, it was okay, but definitely preferred the Eldorado's. We sat outdoors for this. We had apps and drinks at the same restaurant the night before, which is nice after a long hot day. Recommend sitting on patio with view of lake.

There is a small boardwalk along the water, spanning the Eldorado and the Manteo, thenit ended, with construction on either side. There is also a small beach area and two pools (one with a waterside) and a gym at the Manteo. On the other side of the construction, there is a public beach, where a lot of people hang out during the day, but far enough from the resort that we did not hear them.

Would I stay here again, probably, but would demand a lake view room! If I wanted to hang out more in the town of Kelowna, then I would definitely stay on the other side of the lake. But there is a large mall (Orchard Mall, I believe it was called, on the highway), which is close enough.

We went to visit many wineries on this trip and found this location ideal for our purpose.

I think once all the construction is complete and roads repaired it will be even better, and will definitely look at coming back here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as far away from the parking lot, or the main entrance of the hotel, as possible. Rec...

Loved this resort, beautiful lakeside location, private and has excellent amenities. The restaurant service was superb and the food was wonderful. Staff was very professional and friendly. Will most definitely return!

All inclusive, in terms of no hidden fees. Great for families with small children. We stayed in a regular room in the hotel which was very spacious with two small children. We got two fold our beds for our kids at no hassle or additional cost.

Great place! We would stay with them again. The location is fantastic and the rooms (we had a studio suite) are nice and large with a small kitchen. We had booked the location for one night, but we wish we could have stayed longer. The area is so beautiful.
