We all loved it. Kids are 8 and 5 and this place was perfect for them. Pool is nicely maintained , there is a kiddie pool and a huge hottub all very clean.It is easy to keep an eye on the kids at all times. Plenty of thick pool towels and pool toys available. The rooms are small but beautiful and clean and modern and full of all the nice amenities. The food is absolutely excellent! The fontana grill is a bit pricey but justified by the quality and service and atmosphere. I'm a picky food snob and was happy as could be. The whole resort has a warm and inviting feel. Did not use the spa but it looked very good. This resort seems to cater to nice young families with nice, well behaved children and parents who appreciate a high quality hotel experience. Can't wait to go back!!

This was a spectacular destination for a girls 3-day/2-night spa spring break trip! We chose the Spa sampler package for both days and thoroughly enjoyed lounging around the spa for 2 straight days. The spa services provided were stellar and we were so relaxed we could have melted into puddles. Everyone at the resort was extremely helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. We stayed midweek in the off-season and practically had the resort to ourselves which made the experience just that much more peaceful. I would highly recommend this resort and spa if you're looking for relaxation and fun. Although we didn't have any kids with us, it looked like kids would also love it and stay entertained for at least a few days with very little effort on the part of parents. A BIG bonus!

The Abbey has wonderful amenities and is a beautiful hotel with a choice of restaurants and great children's activities all under one roof. The staff was friendly and helpful, food was reasonably priced, and even though it wasn't yet spring, the grounds were enjoyable. We loved the s'mores over the firepit in the evening! There was always something to do. The rooms and overall stay are a good value for the money.

The Abbey Resort and Spa is a gem. This is a large resort but provides a small town experience. It is located in Fontana, a cozy little community on the far western shore of Lake Geneva. The resort provides everything a person would expect from a first class resort including access to Lake Geneva and a large marina. The staff and accomodations are second to none. I would recommend it to anyone. In the past when I visited Lake Geneva, which is twice a year, I stayed at Lake Lawn which has since closed and felt that it's better days were behind it. I would rate the Abbey Resort and Spa many steps higher in visitor experience than Lake Lawn. I suspect that this would be the case for anyone who visited the Abbey for the first time. I am sure that the Abbey benefited from Lake Lawn's demise and many happy customers resulted.
