Recently stayed here for a business meeting and conference. There's a lot to this property! Rooms were good to very good - a little dated, but OK. The restaurant was good. The staff is great. Very friendly and helpful.

On a whim we travelled down to the lake to look at a car and stayed here. The room was average but most of the resort showed its age and was dated. We walked over to go into the indoor water park to find out that you have to pay to use. I think if you are paying for a...

Very pretty property and nice new lobby. We were first put in "the estates" it was a very dated room. Reminds you of a super8. Noticed droppings in the shower and bathroom, but shrugged it off and took a shower and went out for the night. In the morning woke up in the bed that was sagging and pulling the...

Nice clean room with 2 double beds. We were in the Estates which was far away from activities/pool. Next time I'd request a room in a main building. Indoor pool was very nice, water park we didn't do cause it was $17 a person and we were only staying one night. We paid for a lake view but only got...

Visited of the New Year's Eve party. The cost of the one night included a one night stay, dinner buffet, full open bar, and play money to play at the casino, and a live music. It was a safe / great way to bring in the New year. The cost is around 350.00 per couple,

Got the New Years Eve package at a great price. There is plenty to do there even at this time of year. If you go hungry or bored, then there is something definitely wrong. Really, really need to work on their parking situation, as it is scarce close to rooms near the water. We had a little problem with the...

Dear JeremeM75, Thank you for your review and mentioning how great Tan-Tar-A Resort is in the off-season! We are sorry to hear that your children’s skin was affected by the waterpark.

We chose this resort to have a mini-vacation with another family, both with kids aged 10 and 12. We spent 2 days at the water park and one overnight stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed in building A, which is the main resort building. The room was very spacious, with a small balcony. It had recently been renovated, and...

Beautiful Resort. Wonderful Customer Service. Could use some attention to detail in rooms. My family stayed over the entire Thanksgiving long weekend November 2016.

Great location, but the resort facilities are rather average with a convoluted layout. Very nice and helpful staff. I recommend the spa for the services and nice staff, not necessarily for the spa facilities.
