Winter get away with the girls. Focused on spa treatments and use of spa amenities. Of the five us only I had a massage (aroma therapy) and the others had pedicures. Only one was not pleased and it was due to a particular staff person, not the spa. Our rooms had spa robes and footwear and it is not unusual... More

We had a great girls spa weekend at the Abbey. We spend a day at the spa and it was a luxurious retreat from our cold Midwestern winter. The rooms are decorated with a nautical theme and are bright, comfortable and beautiful. This is our 1oth year coming to the Abbey and we always have a wonderful time.

Was here for a business meeting and couldn't have been happier. Great food at both the Waterfront restaurant and 240 . The room was older (I believe the hotel was built in the 60's, but very clean and updated. In fact, the bed was one of the more comfortable I've had the pleasure to sleep on. The service was above...

This was my first time going to this resort and the only sad part was leaving. My girlfriend and I travel every New Year to celebrate in a memorable fashion and the Abbey Resort did not fail us.

We stayed at the Abbey a couple of weekends ago. They have nicely updated the hotel rooms and SPA. I was glad to see that the SPA still had all of the great amenities that i remember from previous trips. The food on the other hand, was less than okay.

This was the second time at Abbey Resort, first time was just me and my wife, second was with the family and both times I had a great time. The room was a bit small for a family. Next time I would love to stay in one of the villa's.
