Comfortable place to stay, friendly staff. Beautiful rose garden with a view of the lake. The location on the corner of 2 major roads makes its very noisy. The wifi barely worked in our room and we had to go outside to get a workable signal.

How close to a main road? i.e. quietness. How far to walk into town to a restaurant?
Concur with all previous answers. The hotel is located on the main road, but it is on the quiet end of town. I certainly did not notice the noise and the rooms are well insulated. It would not be fair to describe the distance to town for restaurants as 'walking distance'.

Thank you Ian, I was beginning to suspect things had changed there. Happy travels.
Sorry we are no longer a timeshare.

Are you still a Timeshare resort. If so, is it possible to do an 'exchange' from England?
Phoenix Resort is no more, I believe now it's a motel.

"Suite with balcony overlooking the lake are nice"
"Just state your requirements and request from the staff who will go out of their way to accommodate you."
"Ground floor standard room is great for couples"
"We had a room 12 which is on the end nearest the road. Might be better having a lower number"
"If you have trouble with stiars, the bedroom is upstairs and bathroom down. Could be an insure expecially for elderly people."
