Family and I spent 4 days at Oakwood Resorts. This resort is approx 15 mins walk from Main Street and Grand Bend public beach. Set on a golf course the main building is recently updated, however, many of the accomodation rooms are in older building that need to be attended too. Many of ther rooms have balconies and we upgraded to a "deluxe room" - however, found no difference in our room to a standard room. The staff and workers on the property are all pleasant and hardworking. Room cleaning is done in the afternoon, so do not be suprised to come back to your room at lunch and its not completed. We did notice that bedding and sheets and the general cleaniness of the bathrooms was below par. Soap stains remain on counter-tops, towels are re-folded and not replaced.
The food both at buffet and Clubhouse were good. The selection of food at the buffet is varied and tasty. The morning coffee, however, is weak and a better suggestion is to drive to the local Tim Hortons. The "private" beach is shared with a gated local residential community and is approx 5 mins walk from the property. The golf course is average and the driving range a 2 mins drive away from the property on the other side of the road. Note - on Tuesday after 1pm the golfing is only $12 (however - in the summer this may not be a good idea).
Overall - Oakwood Resorts is a good location, however, it left one to feel something missing and just not complete. Looking for a quick break away from the city (it's approx 2 hr 15 mins from Mississauga), its a great place to visit. The beach has miles of soft, clean sand and the shores extend into Lake Huron for some distance.
