We first came to this resort in Cypress Hills during the July long weekend but they were booked full. We ended up staying in Med Hat for our hotel sleep and driving 1.5 hours back to Cypress to enjoy a full day at the park.
Next time we booked ahead and only got the hotel room in the main hotel resort and not a condo style one. We booked the hotel for 3 nights during the Sept labor day weekend, and it was quite nice. Only thing was we wish we could have had a small fridge for our room so we could at least keep a few things cold. But we did bring our own cooler so that was ok.
The dining room was very nice, a bit on the pricey side, but the food was good and the servers we had were so nice and friendly. They always came by and chatted with us and made sure we always got water on the spot or anything we wanted. Great waitresses working there. Very friendly and hard workers !
We had a great time at the park and enjoyed the facilities. Also the little ice cream shop made great shakes and ice creams and always had a line up for their goodies.
The lake was nice and you could walk all around it , use the kayaks, paddle boats and the small beach there. They had volleyball nets and a couple of barbeque stands with picnic tables close to the lake. Probably could use a few more since I think I only saw 2 there and one of them had the bottom rusted through. There was a big outdoor pool and kids could swim outdoors every day when its hot out and an indoor hot tub too.
They had the zip lines going but we were not into that so passed on that option.
We enjoyed the walks, the relaxation of the lake and there was a mini golf park with a great little hamburger stand next to it. They even have large teepees that I think you can also rent to camp in during the summer.
My brother ended up taking his family and kids there too for a couple days and they enjoyed it as well. I will come back for sure since its only 4.5 hours from Calgary and I will have to make sure to get the condo apartments to rent since you can then bring your own food and cook while on holidays. It gets expensive eating there if you have a big family.
Great resort and nice hotel - we will come back again since its only a short drive from Calgary !
