I booked Tan-Tara for a mid-week getaway on June 24-26. I did not know that 'run of the house' means you get what you get and dont throw a fit. Not really, but it does mean that your room is not assigned until actual check in and if, and that's a big 'IF' you get the resort side consider yourself... More

Stayed here three years ago for a conference. After staying at the Lodge of Four seasons last year for our conference, I can tell you that coming back to Tan Ta Ra was a relief, but that's not to say that it doesn't need some serious updating. To be fair they have made some updates, but the property needs a... More

Scary how time flies. So to see a resort with a 20-year window can be quite enlightening. Unlike the Lodge of the four seasons, this resort has really grown and made it much more fun especially for kids. The water park and new water slide are great new amenities the lobby and hotel rooms have all been beautifully updated. The... More

Building A puts you in the middle of all of the activities. There is an arcade, bowling, waterpark, restaurants, golfing, and boating. The carpets should be replaced in the whole facility, as they are old and musty. The rooms were well maintained. We enjoyed the food and service at the Bear Restaurant. You never have to leave the resort to... More

Let's start with the parking. It is truly a nightmare. Nothing is convenient. If you are not in top physical shop, don't even bother. The likelihood of your getting anywhere close to your room is negligible. It isn't just a long walk from every location, it is hilly and miserable. Onto the rooms.,They are old, dingy and smelly. It is... More

We had a blast at Tan-Tar-A with our three young children. The kids loved the pool and the little beach. Although the indoor water park is extremely overpriced, the kids loved it too.

I have only stayed here on business. Some time I hope to be able to enjoy all the resort has to offer. The rooms are large, clean and relaxing. I always wish I could stay longer. Staff is very friendly and I love the little shops in the market place.
