It was just O'K vacation. At least the week when we staid it was not much going on. On their website they advertised a canoe trips, a bike guided trips, Pilates and yoga that they do as part of activities, I didn't see it any of that. The "camp" for kids was a joke. It was some young kid who was providing some few hours of babysitting. In my mind if someone runs a camp activities program they should know lot's ofgames and have lot's ideas and energy. That kid, was just a nice kid who seemed to me was afraid of little kids.
I told to the owner that we are very disappointed from this place. He basically told me ,if I don't like this and I will choose to leave he will charge the full price. Great.... The following day I spoke with the wife of the owner she was at least trying be helpful and understanding, but still would charge for two nights at little bit more then 2000$. So it wasn't worse it just to pay that amount and try to find something else. The food was so, so. Few times the dinner was very good, but most of the times just O'K. It was very inconsistent. For what they charge, they should have more healthier options for the breakfast. Some families who stayed before, they didn't choose the meal plan. Very smart!!!! because the food is almost the same every day. What else I didn't like, that kids should choose the dinner from the kids options. And the quality it wasn't good at all. We came to that kind of place because of the kids, why the kids should be treated differently plus they charge a lot for the family. We did a lot of fun activities outside of that "resort", but because of staying their, the Halimar put a bad taste and our vacation was ruined.
What was good. They have an outdoor pool which is overlooking the lake with the diving board, that was big hit for kids and on the raining day we had a fireplace working what was very relaxing and we took a nap. Me and my husband didn't feel that we rejuvenated, it wasn't horrible, but wasn't good.
If you looking for the quite place, but not a dead atmosphere, look for something else.
