“What a relaxing weekend, we'll be back !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2009

We ahd a great relaxing weekend here at Chateau Elan, we will definently be back. We arrived and relaxed by the pool for a bit and then walked over to Paddy's Pub, an authentic Irish pub built in Ireland and brought over and rebuilt on the property. The fish and chips were amazing. It was nice to have this little pub across the parking lot from the refined hotel. We woke late SSaturday morning and had the breakfast buffet which was very pleasing and then took off to walk the 1.8 mile nature trail. Very relaxing and a nice walk not too strenuous. We had a spa appointment for a couples massage at 11:30, both my girlfriend and I thought it was the best we had ever had. We nexttook a short nap than went over to the winery, a short walk across the parking lot also and joined the winery tour and winetasting. It was a great and relaxing day. One of the best weekends i've spent, i didn't turn the TV on once and for me that is unheard of. If you want a very relaxing and entertaining getaway this is a great find. Highly reccommend.

Stayed August 2009, traveled as a couple

Husband & I spent our 25th there. Room was decorated with rose petals on bed and in and around tub, lined with candles..Just beautiful...We had chocolate covered strawberry's in fridg along with a bottle of champagne. Very quiet elegant place. The winery was nice and the hotel in general was elegant. We had a couples spa visit, massage in same room, spa looked like it need updating compared to others I have been too. Massage was okay, had better. It is a great place to spend an anniversary or special occasion.

Service and amenities in spa were excellent. We did not encounter one staff member who did not make an effort to ensure that our visit was memorable.

We had a great time at Chateau Elan. Our room was beautiful, bed was very comfortable. The wine tour and wine tastings were fun. We got some delicious wines there. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we had a great meal at the Versailles Restaurant. I can't wait to go back.

Almost everything was great, the place immaculate, the service efficient and very professionnal. The only thing who disapointed us was the poor quality and choices of food, whatever the restaurant. For that kind of Hotel, a decent Chef is a must to have. Sure this will improuve in the future, then the place will be just perfect.

Chateau Elan was a nice, clean place to stay for a weekend, but is a bit expensive for what it is. I traveled there for a Girls Get-Away with my family – 6 women in our party ranging from ages 27-62. We had a wonderful time, but were disappointed by the management. Like the reviewer 6 entries below me, our party had been billed a mysterious $325 at the Spa, when we had registered for a spa package which included those fees. When we were checking out, it took an hour and a half to correct these charges; all while being insulted by the front desk manager when it was a booking mistake on their part. It also seemed that this “resort” catered more to conventions than to vacationers, there was a lack of attention to detail (ex. no bottled water in the room).

The spa was ok, but crowded. Skip the 4 pm “tea time” as it was nothing special- it definitely wasn’t a tea time in the traditional sense. Unfortunately for Chateau Elan, I stayed at the J.W. Camelback Resort in Scottsdale the week before, and their spa made CE’s look amateur.

We took a cooking class (with Chef Ellis) which made our trip! He made the class fun, and he bent over backwards to made sure we enjoyed our dinner at the Café the next evening. Breakfast at Versailles was also excellent.

If you’re really into wine, skip the tour. CE does not put a limit as to how many people will be taking the tour. There were over 85 people on our tour (the average they say is 40 people) and we could barely hear or see. We were also shoulder to shoulder at the tasting table, we were being told to “squish in” which is not exactly the thing I want to hear when I’m going to be tasting their wine and investing in some- I didn’t.

If you’ll be making a trip here, do so with the understanding that there is a management handicap. Check your bill. I would give this resort 3 stars maximum.
