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.

This is a beautiful resort with activities for everyone...golf, tennis, frisby golf, biking, walking trails, adult pool, and great pool for kids with splash pad and water slide. Very nice indoor or outdoor restaurant/bar with good food and reasonable prices. There are also great shaded lounging areas by the pool. Nice lounge areas inside with large TVs and complimentary coffee....

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.
