This is a very fun and family friendly resort. You can stay at the main lodge or get an individual cabin right by the lake. Everything you need is right there! You can lounge by the pool, grab a drink or a bite to eat in one of their restaurants. They even have an indoor water park with lots of fun slides for the kids. We love going there on Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day. There are lots of activities, fireworks, DJ and dancing under the stars. It's a great little getaway!

Room Tip: Get a lake view room...very pretty sunsets!

We came for business for my husband. Two teenagers and I could not find anything to do at this resort. The outdoor pools were closed. The horseback rides were closed. The hotel is straight out of THE SHINING. To get to our room we had to go up a floor, around a corner, around another corner, two slight upward hills (I'm serious. ) I worried, what if there's a fire? Could we find our way out? The door was cut wonky so you could see light in the room all night. It sounded like the neighbors were in the same room, and they weren't being noisy! My kids kept saying, "Nobody puts baby in the corner! " It has the vibes of a bad resort, ala Dirty Dancing. Just none of the excitement. The workers seem mad they had to come to work. We asked a worker if there was a place we could go enjoy the water, he looked at us like we were crazy. Then he pointed to a dock. Really? I'll avoid this place at all costs, especially in the "offseason."

sparkygirl2277, We are disappointed to hear that you and your family felt that we are lacking things to do this time of year. Tan-Tar-A Resort offers a great value for families, couples and conference attendees in the fall with an arcade, miniature golf course, bowling alley, indoor waterpark, tennis courts, spa, 27 holes of championship golf, 5K trail and gift shops. We recently added a game room in our pizzeria which is open late.
An emphasis is also being made on better associate training. As you pointed out, the staff needs to be aware of everything that is going on in the resort so they can answer any questions our guests may have. Your critique will be discussed in our monthly customer service trainings.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay and if there is any way we can assist you again in the future, please let us know.

I've Beene coming here for work events for years. Finally I'm seeing light at the end of the 1970s era, Dirty Dancing ambiance that has haunted me here for years. The new rooms are nice and well appointed. Restaurants and lobby are updated and look much more in line with similar resorts. I look forward to moving this rating to 4-5 stars in the near future when the renovations are completed. Wish there was a higher tier restaurant at the resort, but it is focused on family activities and related amenities.

Rooms have been “updated” to a Jimmy Buffett themed mess, but the whole architecture, ambiance, and experience was straight out of the 1960’s. Very strange. Party atmosphere on the lake isn’t really my thing anyway. I probably won’t be back.

Come here each year for a conference. They have updated the rooms to a beachy theme to go along with their new ownership of Margaritaville. They had charging ports and outlets on the lamps. Bed was comfortable. They redid one of the restaurants and now it's open and airy.
