Being handicap, there was a lack of assistance from staff to accommodate and lack of consideration for needs. There was a conference starting in the time frame of our stay and the staff seem to have been concerned with catering to their needs. Was out by the pool 2 diff afternoons and we weren't offered any service for drinks or food, even though there were staff constantly walking by and delivering to others. The friendliest people of the whole lodge were actually working the pool towel station, very courteous and gracious Rented golf cart for entire stay, only to find our that I couldnt even drive it to the handicap parking for the beach area. We werent told of this either until we turned to go into the parking lot and the cart immediately cut off, because gps registered it as off property, which we were not. Then we were stuck on a very steep embankment with vehicles behind us. This was very hazardous and scary being handicapped and unable to get off and try and remove from roadway. This lodge is not affiliated with the Margaritaville part of Lanier islands. Lodge was fairly clean, I found a nasty moldy towel under our towel rack under the sink that appeared to have been there for awhile,grounds were immaculately kept. Nice paths for walking, vending didnt work properly on several floors. Food menu and choices were very sub-par.

My room ac was not working , woke up at 2 at 78 inside the room, was not maintenance overnights so we have to move to another floor, 2 sleeping kids, second room the sink was leaking, the pool was great but all the adults were there with open drinks ( alcoholic) on the pool so if my kid move to swim they look at us like crazy for swimming on the pool. Wish was just a normal stay because the place is gorgeous, but since is so expensive is going to be hard to go back to give another shot . Staff was awesome and place was beautiful.

Great place for adults and children. Adults can relax at the wave pool, on the beach or on the boat. The kids can do their own thing at the water park.

Beautiful property and pet friendly, but was disappointed as I was there for Mother’s Day weekend and stayed an extra day. My key card was disabled and I had to ask for staff help, it was not offered. Then late at night my hallway carpet was being shampooed loudly along with loud staff- I was told it was ok’d by management because no one was on my floor! I shouldn’t be calling the front desk at 11pm to tell them I’m still there and to have cleaners return the next day. Loved the property- the customer care, service, and else- not worth the price and took away from my stay.

The area and property were beautiful.. there were hardly any amenities (we paid for breakfast that we had no idea we had to pay for, there are no signs anywhere telling you that you have to pay) the price per night was NOT WORTH it!

The staff there was very not helpful. I went for mother's day and instead of helping me make reservations they just kept passing me around to different people. Also their website suckes and their help line is lazy. I called a few days in advance to see if i needed reservations for brunch and to confirm my room type and they said i didnt need reservations and the room type was good to go. Got there to find out room type was not right and needed reservations.
