“Lovely place lovely views lovely staff”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Spent a week in 2bedroom 2 bath unit V4. Asked for fewest steps to get into condo. Thee were a total of 3 steps. Assumed it would not have a view and was surprised that our private balcony had a great view do the lake. Bedrooms are large and one bath had jacuzzi tub while other a regular tub. Kitchen small but perfectly adequate. Living room small so would not recommend extra people to sleep on sofa bed. It would be quite crowded. But for up to four adults there is plenty of room.
Having our own washer and dryer was great as we could do laundry before heading hem and arrive home without the need to immediately start home chores.

Game room with ping pong and pool table, sauna, not tub and two outdoor pools. A mini golf course with tees and greens but none of the windmills and houses you see at commercial mini golf courses.

Holidays, the town has a fireworks display from one of the marinas. Nearly every room can see the display from the balcony - but not V4. There are some trees in the way that preclude a good view of the display.

Staff was helpful and pleasant. Overall an exceptionally nice place for home base around the hot springs area or relaxing on the balcony overlooking the water.

Be aware that they request guests strip the sheets and put them and used towels in pillow cases before departing. I mention this only because I have heard others complain about this at other resorts. I personally don't find it offensive and it doesn't for me, detract from the great stay!!

Room Tip: The view of fireworks was obscured by trees for unit v4. However, if no holidays that isn't an...

friendly, helpful staff, beautiful views. The next time you plan to go to Hot Springs, you should stay here. We have been visiting South Shore since 1983 and we have never been disappointed. No matter what building you use, you will have a gorgeous view of the lake. You will come back again and again. Like we do!

Room Tip: all rooms are good. We have never had one we didn't like.

Good location....good staff....great RCI price, lakeview, bridge lights....but why some may call dated....is a remembrance to the building and design of the abundant, prosperous life we lived, built and enjoyed of the 80-90's....large rooms, brocade, silks, mirrors, big, comfy stuffed furniture.....gold bathroom fixtures, walk in shower, double vanity, balconies. Townhouse floor plan and double fireplaces. It snowed several days, we had views, fires and a lovely time.

WOW at the Amazing Views from this BEAUTIFUL LAKE HAMILTON FRONTING and MOUNTAIN SIDE RESORT with aprox 18 ACRES to play, swim, walk, tennis, fish, and boat!

TWO POOLS with one ON THE WATERFRONT and one at top of hill.

EXTREMELY CLOSE to EVERYTHING! Great restaurants on the water, fine dining, mall, movie theaters, shopping, and entertainment!

Room Tip: LAKE FRONT is busy, but just off has incrediable views of lake, pool, mtns. and holiday fireworks!

We enjoy staying at South shore lake resort, we got a lake view room. The unit a large and there is two outside pools and a game room. It is only (maybe 5 mins) to down town Hot springs where a person can get a hot bath and message. It is close to The Bell a nice dinner cruise with great food and many other things.

We have utilized our timeshare at South Shore Lake Resort for only a couple of years now, but it is a great property. We have another timeshare in north central Arkansas at a different time of year, that is more rustic. We enjoy all of the amenities of Hot Springs that are within 10 minutes drive from South Shore. Great restaurants, Oaklawn gaming year-round, exhibits, lakes, etc. We are caregivers for our elderly parents, who both live within an hour or two of Hot Springs, so we can make emergency runs very quickly if needed. The last two times we went to South Shore, we upgraded to a two-bedroom condo, and really enjoyed our stay even more than the first time. The maintenance fees for timeshare owners are extremely reasonable. All of the facilities are in excellent condition, although there isn't always someone in the office, which is probably the only downside to the property. They also have packages for non-owners, so you don't have to buy to stay there.

Room Tip: Go for the two-bedroom condos.

We visit South Shore Lake Resort at least once per year. We just returned from a 3 night stay and were please with what we found. Several things have been upgraded since our last visit. New carpet on the mini golf course (yes they have mini golf on site along with tennis courts, basketball goal, picnic areas with charcoal grills, billiards, ping pong and more), we also noticed upgrades to building exteriors and the second pool that had been closed on our last visit is now renovated and open. Many of the units we have stayed in have been updated, but those that may not be of the most recent style and decor' are always very clean and well maintained. There are a few units we have stayed in that have some trees blocking partial view of the lake, but they are still good. Most have had excellent views. I highly recommend this resort. This isn't a hotel, so their office hours are a little different. I do know that there were some different faces in the office than we have seen in the past, so maybe the phone call issues listed by the other review have been corrected.
