I was a first-time guest at the Abbey and found the meeting space and guest rooms to be extremely comfortable. Night-time options are abundant with several excellent restaurants on site. I highly recommend this resort for a meeting or retreat.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Abbey Resort during a recent conference. This is not the typical cookie cutter conference experience! The staff was courteous at every turn and extremely attentive to the guests. Special requests, and there were several, were met with "it would be my pleasure" or "yes sir". The food was fresh, tasty, and well... More

My husband and I stood at the Abbey Resort for our 5 year anniversary. The service was excellent. We had reserved spa services 3 hours prior to check in and they were nice enough to allow us to check in at noon since the room had already been cleaned. The food was great. The ambiance was nice.

The Abbey is a pretty good resort. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and very comfortable. However, my major complaint and reason why I'll probably won't return is that the room allow a lot of light in (which is good) but do not have any sort of blackout curtains (which is bad). If you're planning on sleeping in,... More
