Spent the weekend at the Abbey Resort and Spa. Enjoyed their delicious breakfast, excellent service and Spa facilities. The exercise room is one of the nicest I've seen in a long time with lots of well cared for, top end equipment. The rooms at the Abbey Resort (our at least) was a little tired and out dated. While the floors,...

We stayed here for a long weekend & for the most part it was great. Staff we encountered were wonderful! The room was nice with comfy beds, very clean & stocked with toiletries. Only issue we had was the pool water was cloudy & the walls are a little on the thin side- at times it felt as though our...

It's a great place to unwind. Our room overlooked the harbor. Very peaceful. Room was very clean. We will visit again for sure. We went in early April so, it was peaceful and relaxing. They serve Starbucks coffee so that is a plus for me. We ate at 240 at the resort. I enjoyed the buffet with crab legs and...

We went for a girls weekend/birthday retreat and had so much fun. It was relaxing and restful and just amazing. The staff was wonderful and helpful and friendly. The room was great. The food was mostly great. Don't order the steak in the Waterfront Restaurant though. It was not good. The steak in the Fontana Grill is amazing though.

Great spa with private pool and facilities for adults. Also has pool and activities for kids/families. Good restaurants and bars on site. Nice location near the lake. Balconies aren't private and there's not a lot of space in the 2 queen bed rooms but still a good resort overall.

Been coming here for years, getting worse each year. And I drop a lot of money into this hotel every year when I come. I get at least $300.00 worth of spa services and I spend a lot of money in the restaurants as well. A friend who lives 4 hours away came to my house which I live an...

Stayed here for three days during our son's spring break. I was surprised at first at the number of families/kids here. I had no idea it was so family friendly! The resort had several events and activities planned, and one of the most popular seemed to be nightly s'mores around the fire pit. The property was beautiful and well maintained,...

Nice resort. We had a great package deal. Spa, salon, amenities and restaurants are very good. Spring break weekends are busy, so keep that in mind. Make reservations at the 240 West restaurant ahead of time. Nice villas and great views. Resort staff are friendly and helpful. We would love to come again.

We were very impressed with the resort grounds. The room itself was very nice, clean and the beds were really comfortable. The staff we encountered was always very friendly to us. We treated ourselves to a massage and while they were both very good we didn't think they warranted the $135 price tag. I've had massages for less money that...
