Beautiful location. Outdated. Check in is horrible takes forever (about 30 minutes) every time we've been here. Then you have to go to "guys" in corner to find out where your room is and get into where to go in the area (another 20 minutes). Now let's go to room. Wow no parking its horrible. No bellmen so carry your...

If you're all about the water and other outdoor recreational activities, such as golf, Tan-Tar-A is a wonderful destination. We stayed in the rustic main lodge. Our room-with-water-view was delightfully large with 2 king sized beds, a couch, chairs, table, microwave, refrigerator, and 2-sink bathroom. Very comfortable mattresses and environment. We were delighted! Parking and access to the parking garage...

Great: Service, all of the staff is exceptional, very friendly, and very helpful. Restaurant options - we only ate at the "to-go" pizza and burger place. Both were good and reasonable priced. By good, I mean what you would expect. I was very happy they got rid of Burger King and Sbarro, this local-owned just seemed way better. The lounge...

Book this resort every year during bikefest. Been coming for 30 years and love Tantra. Food choices awesome, everything is on campus. Parking can be a challenge but the parking garage is best bet. Hilly walking around. Get golf cart when available.

We enjoyed our stay. Check in was efficient although large volume of people arriving together. Parking to check in is a bit chaotic for first time visitors. The resort campus is smaller than it appears and we were glad for that as it is hilly and anyone can fatigue quickly. A couple cheap dining options, food cafeteria style ordering and...
