We loved the spa! Very relaxing. The towels and linens in the room were terrific. They offer a kids pool with slides and an adult pool outside. We found two pools indoors. The food is subpar tho, so you really need to eat out of resort. Luckily there are two restaurants within walking distance. Gordon's has excellent fish tacos!

We are repeat visitors and really want to love the Abbey. After 2 cold showers we decided to move rooms although the front desk assured us the problem was fixed with a 'free upgrade' to harbor view room. Consistent hot water is an expectation and no one wants the hassle of packing up to move rooms mid-stay. Inquired if there... More

We have stayed at this resort before and enjoyed it, so we came back. It is really started to show more wear and tear and is in need of some investment. We checked into our room and the door to balcony did not work. We were told that there was a wedding there the night before and there were others... More

When you book at hotel for over $300 a night, you expect it to have certain qualities. We booked a weekend 08/19-08/21 for our anniversary. We had to book a 2 night minimum due to peak season demands. The facility itself is nice. But just nice. Great location, but the hotel rooms are pretty run down. The service anywhere at... More

We were here for a friend's party. The rooms were very nice, clean and the bed was super comfy. The view if the lake was awesome. We had a patio outside where we could see a wedding taking place. The banquet was wonderful. We had a cocktail hour on the patio followed by a dinner. The food was excellent. The... More

The Abbey is very close to the lake and only a 10 minute drive to our boat. Resort has a campy feel. Room was small but clean and the price was very fair. Room service was not good. Staff seemed a bit overwhelmed by the fact that the hotel was sold out. We would stay there again as long as... More

I'm surprised to see the number of people who have negative things to say about the Abbey. My husband, daughter and I go there a few times a year, and we're not wealthy. I find the atmosphere so much calmer and more genuine than the Geneva Grand. It also has two key amenities I haven't seen in other resorts -... More

This is my second time staying at The Abbey, and I have always thought it was a pretty nice place. My wife's family has been coming here for about 25 years for vacation and to unwind. This was the first year that they said they might not be back. The room - while it was a bit dated in look,... More

I stayed at the Abbey Resort & Spa on a business trip. The resort is very nice. My room was right on the harbor, and the resort patio was right outside my back door which was very convenient. The room was nice and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I loved that there was a couch and coffee table... More
