4/5 Good

The hotel is located inside an amazing place, surrounded by lakes and golf course with unique views. We stayed at one of the lake houses which are 5 min away from the hotel itself. At first they gave us the lake house #23 which is at the top of the hill difficult to reach and not very kids friendly. Also very dark due to all the trees around and no lake view. We complain about it and they change us to lake house #1 and it was a completely different story. Super luminous and close to the gate with a lake view on both ways. Also very close to the Margaritaville, walking distance. The lake house was clean and very comfortable, there is an amazing fireplace and AC unit of needed. Also wifi works perfect. At the terrace there is a bbq that we used a lot. For sure a great place to recommend, I would definitely go back.

Everything was very nice. The pool and view of area was in a nice setting. The restaurant menu was just like a burger joint. Perhaps add something for better selection.

most relaxing and fun filled stay

My husband and I just spent the most relaxing and fun filled day and night at Lanier Islands Legacy Lodge and can't say enough good things about it. The staff were very friendly and professional. We were promptly greeted upon arrival and was delightfully surprised that they allowed us to check in so early in the afternoon. The room was already cooled down to a comfortable temperature so we didn't have to suffer through cooling down a hot room. The room was very large and the bathroom was super nice! I loved the shower and the very comfortable bed the most! The balcony view was mostly of the beautiful grounds because the trees blocked a lot of the lake which wasn't too bad because it made it seem more private. We loved the big salt water pool which wasn't crowded! The ribs at Bullfrog's Bar and Grill were the best I've eaten in a long time! They had just the right amount of spice without burning a hole in my mouth. We would highly recommend Lanier Islands Legacy Lodge and already thinking how nice it would be to bring the family along next time.
