We held our family reunion at Arrowwood in 2016 and we plan to go back in 2018! This resort is wonderful. The staff are friendly and service oriented with attention to detail. Food is delicious, ro...oms are comfortable and very nice. You won't regret your stay! See More

Had a horrible experience at Arrowwood, and I'm still very upset about how it was handled. As a pediatric nurse I believe the health and well being of patrons should be of ut most priority, and as a b...usiness owner I thought they're customer service and way of handling a very frightening event at their hotel was absolutely terrible.

Arrowwood played a big part in our special day from accommodating majority of our guests, bringing drinks to the head table, having everything organized when we decorated, and very easy to communicate... with. We are so pleased that we choose them to share our special day. Jonalee was amazing to work with. She worked with our families to make our day what we wanted. I can't say enough about her and how wonderful she was to work with. She was there ALL night and made sure we were having fun as well as ALL of our guests. We would highly recommend Arrowwood and Jonalee for your special day! Thank you again. See More

We hosted a Christian women's faith event there in March ("Overcomer"), and it was such a wonderful place to have it! There was plenty of parking, enough room to hold our near-capacity crowd of 200, and the people there helping us put our accommodations together beforehand and on the day of the event were so helpful and very friendly. They did everything with a smile from start to finish, and made it a pleasure to host our event there. We will be back next year." See More

I have had the pleasure of working with the Staff at this resort for many years. In business and for pleasure, we love the place. We have stayed in the hotel rooms and used the pool and restaurant. Ou...r family uses a large room for our holidays. The kids absolutely love the space it gives us and the pool is a huge plus for the little ones. I have been in the hotel business and hospitality business for many many years and whenever we have any requests, the staff here has gone out of the way to help us. Happy New Year to everyone at Arrowwood. We love Okoboji!! See More

I came in to Arrowwood at the last minute having to get something to a camera man. I timidly asked if there was more than one wedding. Well of course there were. He asked me a couple questions and too...k me immediately to the wedding. Pictures saved. The young man who helped me was courteous - friendly and ever so accommodating! Excellent service! See More

My family has held many events at Arrowwood Resort. We often use "The Great Room" as our venue. We have so many memories of spending time there. Family and friends have often said what a nice open spa...ce it is. The staff has more often than not been fully accommodating to our every request. I recommend this versatile room for any type of gathering. See More

Our business, Heart 'n Home, spent this past weekend at Arrowwod decorating for a wedding. I have to tell you - when you see what behind the scenes are like...that their service is top notch. They a...nticipate a customer's needs before they even know they have it. And if something is changed at the last moment - the staff is very flexible and adapts very quickly.

I credit their new wedding organizer, Kacie, for this. Kacie goes beyond her job for the clients. Arrowwod is very fortunate to have her!

If you want a wedding that has a lot of beauty, easy, and with a staff that will accommodate you...definitely look into Arrowwood. The ability to work with Kacie is worth the price for a stress-free wedding!

We had our family Christmas at Arrowood and stayed in a 4 bedroom townhouse. We were very happy with those accommodations. BUT, disappointed that the hot tub in the water park was not working prope...rly. For the price that we paid we expected that would have been working. The water temp was minimal as well as the jet activity. See More

Stayed at the Arrowwood on Saturday night as part of our Christmas party. The overall experience while we there was great. The staff was friendly and the party atmosphere was exceptional. Our room was... large and comfortable. If I was to rate our experience at the hotel, it would have been higher.

However, it was the experience after the stay that disappointed me. Our room was to be billed to the company, and we would settle the bill with our company. On the way home, we decided to stop and pick up a few groceries. Here is where we found my bank account had been charged. I called the resort, and they showed that I had a zero balance and that nothing had been deducted. The person that I spoke with said that she will pass the information to the manager for further investigation and then call me back.

I didn't get a call back on Monday, so I called around 5:30 pm Monday afternoon. However, the manager was already gone for the day. So I left my name and number for a follow-up call. I waited through the day on Tuesday with no follow-up call, so I called again and this time left a voice mail. I finally got a call on Wednesday morning from the manager, and she was very cordial and wanting to help me. I told her the situation, and she spent a few minutes checking into the situation. She eventually found the issue...when someone else from our company checked into the resort that night, his information was connected to my debit card. So I ended up paying for his room. The manager was apologetic and said that she would have my charges reversed.

However, the security issues are very concerning to me. If one person could have been added to my debit card, how many other customers could have done the same? There was a breakdown in the check-in process to allow this to happen. She says it could take 2-3 business days to get my money back depending on my bank. Unfortunately, it is the Christmas shopping season and the money is tight. It is an inconvenience to go through this, but I am hoping that it will be corrected soon.
