This place is a geothermal gem with a hot water pool and a hot water sand beach. This really a world class location. And the rooms are nice, but...

M wife and I loved the place. It was clean and well maintained. The staff were very warm and helpful. The hot pool was amazing, especially as it was still during the cold months. And the property had its own access to the lake. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our stay and would definitely recommend to anyone.
