If you want an all around family fun vacation - this IS the place to be. Don't go anywhere else. My son (12) and I went here for 5 days as our summer vacation and this place did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed with open arms by the families of this resort. Our room wasn't ready right away but that didn't matter to us. We used that as our excuse to go walk around and see what this resort had to offer. Well we only got a small taste of that. This place has something for everyone. We immediately hopped on a tour boat that went around the lake and saw some of the water activities. It also gave us an idea of where the different activities were held in different buildings. By the time we were done with this our room was ready. And what a room! We had a HUGE room overlooking the lake and bocce ball set as well as the mini-golf. That worked to our advantage everynight as we knew when we could quickly run out to play it. In addition to these games, they have so many more. My son and I were worried we wouldn't get them all in during the week. We found we enjoyed playing disc-golf even though we had never heard of it. And the food... oh the food. OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! My son, who used to be a picky eater, tried everything here. He said everything was delicious and if he didn't like it,our servers would bring him something else. The service here was top notch. We didn't get to try all of the food places and we were quite disappointed in that. We will do that next time. Every morning at breakfast you are given your daily activity schedule, make sure you check that out as you plan your day. We were so excited to see what activities were waiting for us. Of course we were eating so well, we were just so happy all the time. And everyone, from staff to guests were so friendly. I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of fun things to tell you about. Feel free to ask me anything. This was probably the best vacation I've ever taken and my son is still talking about a year later. This is a place we will be visiting again and again.

This place is amazing! It has the best staff ever. There is so much to do for everyone. You can do as much or as little as you like. The staff is so friendly from the restaurant greeters, to the servers, front desk and social staff. Their energy is contagious. Our place was spotless and had everything we needed. The food was good, the activities amazing. Love the all inclusive so it was easy for everyone. I wish we lived closer so we could go more often.

We were an extended multigenerational family with 2yr old to 72yr olds. We stayed in a house and a room at the lodge. The house was modern and spacious and a great space for little kids to roam and play. The kitchen was modern and the overall layout was as good for a large group. The room at the lodge was spacious and had two queen beds. The decor was a little dated but the temperpedic mattresses were very comfortable. The grounds at the facility were well maintained and there were plenty of activities for everyone of all ages, despite there being terrible rain for one full day. The indoor pool facility was comfortable and warm, splash area and hot tubs in addition to an indoor pool. The golf simulator at the pro shop was a fun experience. The daily activity sheet was super helpful in keeping everyone busy. The food was good and plentiful while the staff were always friendly, and quick. Whether traveling with families or just adults, there is a lot of opportunity to do fun and entertaining things.

David- Thank you for your recent stay and for sharing your Woodloch experience with the Tripadvisor community. We are happy to hear that, despite a little bit of rain, your multi-generational visit to our resort was a fun one! Even if we don't have the best of forecasts, our team strives to put together an activity plan that features plenty of variety and keeps "the Woodloch spirit" alive and well throughout your stay. Between the pools, indoor golf simulator at Woodloch Springs and plenty of games and contests, we find a way to make it work!

What a place! I planned a girls trip here with 3 friends from NYC and we had a blast! We got the girlfriends spa package which put us in a 3 BR, 3.5 bath house! It was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Our breakfast & dinner was included at the Club House nearby. The food was so delicious and plentiful at each meal. Lots of options. Even though it was winter, there were sooo many activities to choose from! A daily activity calendar was available with multiple things to do, indoor or outdoor, for all ages...almost like a cruise on land! The show on Saturday night was quite good! And then there's the spa. Wow. Enormous, yet never felt crowded. More options than I knew what to do with! I didn't bring a bathing suit as I didn't feel like going in a hot tub after my massage, but then I saw the outdoor whirlpool, the huge indoor heated pool with waterfall, the sauna, eucalyptus steam room, hot salt room, indoor whirl pool, and SNOW room!! So I bought a bathing suit in the gift shop. Very classy atmosphere. We've decided that we will make it an annual trip, it was that impressive! A "con" for me was the website. It listed many things but it wasn't as detailed or helpful as the app. The property is spread out quite a bit. You will need a car to get around between the properties. A bus/shuttle was not available to us at this time of the year while staying in the house. A decent site map can also be found on the app. Download the app before you go to help plan your stay as there are many things to do in many different places.

Islandtime- Thank you for your review of our properties! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your visits to both Woodloch family resort and The Lodge at Woodloch, an adults-only spa. It sounds like you were truly able to enjoy "the best of both worlds." The Lodge is an award winning destination spa that provides world-class treatments, gourmet dining, plenty of nature and rest and relaxation. Our resort was recently named as "The Best All-Inclusive Family Resort in America" by Newsweek, and provides dozens of activities, games, amenities, nightly entertainment and meals for the whole family, all under one roof. The properties are about 5 minutes apart from one another but offer two totally different experiences. While we do not feature shuttles between the properties (including our Woodloch Springs golf course), we do have a ride-share service that is available at a nominal fee. Thank you for your feedback on our website and our app- we continually work to improve both of them for all users. Once again, thank you for the kind words and we hope to be seeing you again soon! Sincerely, and on behalf of the Woodloch Family, Brooke James, Owner

We just got home from a 3 day weekend at Woodloch Pines Resort -- a wonderful all-inclusive resort in the Poconos. Our group consisted of my wife and me, my daughter, son-in-law and their 3 young children, and my son and his fiancee. We stayed at a 6 bedroom Southwoods home. Everything was terrific. The house was large and beautiful. We had access to a shuttle bus whever we needed one to move around. We were on the two meal a day meal plan. The food is delicious, varied and plentiful. Everyone including the owners themselves are friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are having a great time. There are numerous activities for everyone. Our grandchildren (as well as all of us) loved every aspect of the spacious and well-maintained resort. We are already planning a return visit -- this time in the summer when we can take advantage of all of the outdoor summer activities!!

Thank you for your recent stay and for sharing your thoughts on our resort with the TripAdvisor community. We are delighted to hear your trip was a good one! The Southwoods home accommodations are a great way for multigenerational families or groups of friends to enjoy our resort. They provide large gathering areas as well as 6 spacious rooms. Best of all, they are located on our shuttle route- no need to pack the family up to drive to our amenities and activities. Woodloch is different during all the seasons, and we hope you are able to join us for some "fun in the sun" during a summertime visit. We can't wait to get out on that lake again! We hope to see you soon, and thank you once more for allowing us to share our hospitality with you. Sincerely, Brooke James, Owner

What an amazing experience!!! When we first arrived we were a little skeptical because it was just the two of us and the place was full of families. It was great- everyone was friendly- staff and guests. John and Steve, the owners, are there and circulating all the time. Ditto Tess! Our waiter, Ezequiel, was attentive and helpful.They listen to what guests want. The food is great, and they happily accommodate dietary requests. There are enough activities to last a week.

Richard- Thank you for your recent stay. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed it! Woodloch is a great place for families to visit, but the same can be said for smaller groups and couples. Between all of our resort amenities and events, as well as our trivia contests and nightly entertainment, all that is required is the ability to get involved and let us work our "magic." And if relaxation is more of your thing... we offer that as well! Our golf course and spa are a 5 minute drive away. Thank you for letting us host you, and we hope to see you again soon!

Great time at Woodloch. Dyana in the dining room really made our stay— she was so on top of our meal times! David in the dining room was also terrific and on top of our coffee refills. Jackie is always great and sent us off with a terrific caricature! Max on the games got everyone involved and having a good time. The people really make the experience here!

The facility is quite nice for families, especially at Christmas. The food is quite good, and the wait staff is personable. The main building is cold, necessitating our wearing our ciars inside for tge activites. For evening entertainment they featured an engaging singer the first night and a juggler/ comedians the next. The latter was terrific. A wagon ride to see their holiday light display was a lot of fun and very well done, with lights for all the winter holidays. Over all, as this was our second visit to Woodloch, I would recommend it for warm weather visits.

Woodloch was the perfect way to spend Thanksgiving with your family. The turkey feast is delicious and includes fish and vegetarian options. Breakfasts with fresh baked good were fabulous. Talk tree townhouses are brand new and spotless. There's so much to do, you can't get bored. Try everything because the group activities like family feud, tic tac toss and the jury were a lot of fun. The staff goes out of their way to make sure your trip is perfect. This is a family vacation for the whole family to bond doing activities together. It's not recommended for people who like to drop off kids at the kids club and pick them up at the end of the day. I can see why families go back year after year, because we can't wait return.

Travelsnob10012- Thank you for your recent holiday visit! Thanksgiving is one of our favorite times of the year at Woodloch- not just because of the delicious food or the great games and activities. It's because the spirit of togetherness shines incredibly bright. With family and friends gathered round, we are reminded of all of the blessings we enjoy in life and celebrate in all the best of ways! It also marks the official kickoff to our holiday program, featuring our Festival of Lights wagon rides, which run through New Years. Events like this, as well as other entertainment, contests and amenities, are best experienced with the whole family. It makes Woodloch a very special place. Thank you again for your kind words.

We had a framily long weekend and it was our first time at Woodloch. The views are stunning and so relaxing. Our room was spacious, clean and well thought out (walk in closet area for luggage, clothing, one bathroom had tub, the other shower) We were on a 3 meal dining plan and it was great - our servers were friendly and attentive - the food is outstanding! Lots of activities, though agree with other reviews that they leaned toward younger kids. Our teenager was a little bored at times. Check in: as a first timer, it was hard to navigate check in. it would have been helpful to know what bldg you were staying in before arrival so you can park there (with all your luggage) while waiting for the room to be ready Daily Activity Sheet: love this! can it populate earlier? like 6 am Love the decor and cozy home feel, will definitely be back!

Seamus16- Thank you so much for your visit and sharing your thoughts on your experience. We are happy to hear your first visit to our resort was a good one. If it's possible, it certainly is advantageous to arrive early to our resort to scope out the property and get your bearings. While rooms aren't guaranteed to be ready until 5 PM, you can speak with our reservations team ahead of time and they can let you know the best spot to park for your accommodations. During any given day, Woodloch offers 30 or more activities, games, contests and amenities for all ages and tastes. Our activity sheet is finalized around 8 AM every day to account for last minute changes to weather forecasts and more. A few days before arrival, we are able to provide a loose outline of what can be expected during your visit that is sent in an email. It is highly recommended for all guests- particularly new ones, to check it out ahead of time, as it provides a great "orientation" for Woodloch rookies. Once again, thank you for all of your kind words. We look forward to welcoming you back to our resort! Sincerely, and on behalf of the Woodloch Family, Brooke James, Owner
