Poor 2,0
Misleading name with terrible service.
It is not by the lake. You can only barely see the lake from one part of the hotel, and that tool few hundred meters away. Terrible service. No Wi-Fi except lobby. And to top it all they give weird juvenille excuses as if the guests are morons. It is not the individual servers that were bad, the management sucks. Big time.
