We loved our view & we loved the pool. A few things we didn't particularly like: the mattress was way too firm, we had absolutely horrible service at the Windjammer Grill, and the Tradewinds restaurant wasn't open in the evening although the online site & GPS said they reopened at 5pm plus for a weekend in my opinion they breakfast ended way too early (some people love to sleep in), there weren't too many other options for restaurants close by (especially to celebrate our wedding anniversary) & my husband would say the shower head was too low (he's 6'6"). Other than that, we had a relaxing time & we would consider returning if we brought something to go on top of the mattress so we weren't so uncomfortable sleeping. Overall, it wasn't too bad for a quick getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Thank you for your review of Fourwinds. We're glad to know you enjoyed the view and the pool. I apologize for the service you received at the Windjammer Bar and Grill - we are working to correct a staffing shortage at the moment. I have checked our website and it lists the Tradewinds Restaurant as open for breakfast hours only. We do have a firm mattress in all of our rooms, and I apologize that that is too firm for you. We're glad to know you enjoyed parts of your stay here!

The hotel sits on Monroe lake which is beautiful. Everything was very clean, hotel, beach and the hotel grounds. The restaurant at the hotel probably needs a new menu. The selections were sparse and the food was fried and over cooked. We'll definitely be back but with groceries.

Overpriced for the experience

Pros: Nice sized, lean rooms.
Cons: Better food, add access to printers for guests.
Location: Nothing to do except at resort. Maybe it is better during season, but dismal out of season. Nothing nearby.
Mediocre restaurants for a place so far out of the way with little options for nearby dining. Incredible that there was no availability of computers for guests. Had to email third party to get boarding passes printed. Beds badly made up, sheets did not fit and were not properly put on. Check in time of 4 pm rather late.

Wonderful getaway

This is the third time we have stayed at the FourWinds....each time has gotten better. It has been about one year since out last visit and much has changed they have renovated everything. It really is a wonderful lakeside getaway. We rented a boat and had a blast. The food was good in the restaurant and all the staff was very helpful. The morning sunrise was spectacular from our patio. I really think the value is terrific.  If I had one complaint it is they have a great beach but a bunch of kids made a mess of the chairs by pulling them into the water and no one corrected this until the next morning. I mentioned this to the front desk and they were nice but I had to get my own chair.

Beautiful Location.....

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
My family and I have stayed at this hotel before it was renovated and it was tired, but since our last stay the place is all new. It didn’t even have an elevator before but now it does with nice lobbies and the rooms are amazingly nice. The pictures of the place online are good but the rooms in person are even better. Everything is new and the pool is extremely nice. They had not finished the main lobby or restaurant yet but I was told it was only a few weeks out to completion, I’m no expert but I think that was probably right. This is for sure a wonderful place to come back to in the warm weather. They have boat rentals and a beach as well as tennis, golf and the list goes on. I got a great deal on rate off season, be sure to ask for a lakeside room if you can….the view is fantastic.

IU GAME

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast
We stayed for an IU game and were annoyed at first at far away from campus it was. When we got there we realized it was well worth the wait. We will be back when the weather gets warmer!
