Let me preface this review by saying if you want a 4-star hotel, go elsewhere. The Tribesman Resort is more, well, rustic in nature. Our goal is always to find someplace clean to sleep (that doesn't break the bank), as we are hardly ever in our room when we vacation.
We stayed in the Timber Ridge section in a 2-bedroom apartment. Our room was definitely dated, with older furnishings & furniture - but it was spic and span clean. Even with food left out on the kitchen counters and table, I never saw one bug the entire time we were there.
PROS: Roomy kitchen/living room area, full kitchen with full-size refrigerator, appliances all in working order, comfortable beds, hot shower with good water pressure.
CONS: Wall unit A/C in the living area meant that the bedroom doors had to stay open in order to stay cool. Small vanity in the bathroom and no other available shelf space made it tough for 4 people to find a place for their toiletries.
One of the highlights of the resort was the swimdock. We made it down there two times & the kids had a ball jumping off the dock and swimming around in the cove. We don't own a boat & didn't rent anything while we were there.
We swam in one of the pools & used the hot tub while we were there. The hot tub was clean & well-maintained. I assume the pool was too, but we swam right after a storm so naturally there was a lot of debris floating around. I also liked the on-site laundry room, with free use of washer & dryer. We were lucky enough to be within easy walking distance of it. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Don't be afraid of the deposit that you have to mail in ahead of time; we got a refund check back in the mail within about a week of our departure.
Overall, we really liked the place and would definitely stay there again.
