This is a guy's golf weekend place. It is not a resort in any way whatsoever. The service is nonexistent: 1.) Morning coffee service was empty when they had maybe 30% occupancy. The suggestion was we could just go to the restaurant and buy our advertised complimentary coffee.

I was pretty disappointed when we arrived at The Cliffs. This isn't a resort by my definition. While my husband enjoyed the golf course, the rest of the place was very average. The pool was a ways away,not close to rooms. Our rooms, nearly $300 a night, did not even have a

Dear bevolover, Thank you for your time in completing a TripAdvisor review about your recent stay at The Cliffs Resort. I apologize that you did not care for the guest room décor nor the location of our beautiful 'waterfall' pool. I am delighted that you enjoyed the dining room and that our resort staff, including Shonda, took great care of you. I have shared your comments with Shonda and the rest of our staff.

Not impressed with this hotel. The pool is quite far away from the hotel, far enough that you have to drive. With two kids this was not very convenient, loading and unloading with wet kids. The restaurant on site had an o.k. breakfast but the dinner was not good at all. The

Dear Tiffany R, Thank you for your recent review of The Cliffs Resort. I appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your stay and for recognizing our friendly staff, great views and wonderful golf course. I am absolutely delighted that our hotel manager provided the great service of giving your family a ride to the pool area. While our pool is a few hundred feet from the main hotel building, we are always happy to shuttle our guests to and from that area or the marina. I apologize that you did not care for the restaurant and bar areas. I have shared all of your comments with our staff so that we can continue to focus on our strengths and improve upon any shortcoming that affects even one of our guests. I truly hope that you will give The Cliffs another try when you are at Possum Kingdom lake next time. Jeff Harper

If you are looking to sit outside and look at the lake, there probably isn't a better place to go. The views are outstanding. However, the rest of the experience was just average. The rooms are outdated and of cheaper quality (the are clean), the internet quality is below

Dear Travelelmundo100, Thank you for your recent review of The Cliffs Resort. I truly appreciate your recognition of our impeccably clean rooms, amazing views and our wonderful restaurant (the Chaparral Grille). We actually do have coffee available in the main hotel lobby until noon daily. Please note that we have upgraded our internet router in the last two weeks, to ensure that Wi-Fi speed is faster in all of the hotel buildings and the conference center. Please feel free to contact me directly, at 940-779-4550 if there is anything that we could have done to make your stay more enjoyable. I hope that you have the opportunity to return to The Cliffs Resort in the future. Warmest Regards, Jeff Harper
