We were not made aware of the lack of housekeeping for rooms upon booking or check in. The vending machines were all broken and ate are money and when I told the staff they said “yes we are aware of that” and that was it. The Virtual Arcade that was on the website was closed even though my son called from our room and was told it was open. I asked to speak to a manager but there were none available, I left my number for a manager to call me but they never did, and I sent an email that was ignored.

We LOVED our stay at The Abbey! Unfortunately due to Covid our travel plans for my moms birthday we’re put to a hault. On a wim, my sister and I decided to spend a night at The Abbey and it truly surpassed our expectations. The room was clean, the view (waterfront) was something out of a brochure and the dinner at their restaurant in the hotel was out of this world (and not as expensive as I’d imagine, including cocktails!) From our patio outside our room we were able to walk to the water/piers and enjoy a bonfire at night! With this being a quick getaway trip we were not able to enjoy the spa, but will definitely be back to do so! Breakfast was room service in bed, and to top it all off we were no more than a 20 min drive to downtown Lake Geneva! For a quick getaway that was close to home during these crazy times of Covid19 The charming Abbey made us feel welcomed, safe and pampered. We will absolutely be back!

We just wanted a short getaway and the Abbey was recommended by a FB friend. The outdoor kids pool was a hit! I liked that those chairs cleaned had a frog picture to let you know. They were short on clean towels both days, though. The rooms were simple but ample. Smores for the pit was a nice touch but we were not notified that it was cancelled and heard about Smores from other guests. Kids activities were also closed. Masks used in lobby. There is a playground within walking distance as well as the lake. People were nice, especially a young lady named Luz at the pool. Overall it was a nice experience.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm so glad to read that you enjoyed your stay! Our indoor kids activity room is temporarily closed due to the current health situation, but we still have plenty of fun outdoor things to do. I will be sure to share your compliments to Luz. I hope we see you again in the future!

I REALLY wanted to love this place... the town of Fontana (village actually) is cute and quaint, but you can’t even walk into their neighborhoods... let alone swim at their beach, their lake... This resort only has lake access through their shared marina. Shared with the private marina of the Fontana citizens. And the only bit of Lake you get to see is full of seaweed. So if you’re thinking of staying here and waking up with a cup of coffee looking out at serene Lake Geneva, look elsewhere. Hell, it’s even tough to find a cup of coffee at this resort (even though they have a Starbucks in the lobby) . I got there at 6:30 am and still had to wait in a line 6 deep.They have 2 pools for the entire 6 building resort. 1 adult only which is literally just a pool. All chairs were taken. Nothing to do but look at each other as we were all wondering why the hell we were even there. The kiddie pool was packed... not even room to sit by the pool, on a Monday no less. Can’t even imagine what it was like on the weekend. Overpriced food, 2 restaurants, 1 was almost empty(because it was overpriced and trying too hard to be cool) , the other the only desperate option for food. Oh but there was some good. The staff was very kind. The room was cute, beds and pillows very comfortable. Thankfully because that was the only thing to do at this resort. But the tv doesn’t even have Hulu or Netflix, so if you end up staying here anyway, bring your fire stick because you will have nothing else to do. Unless you have rich friends with a boat nearby. Boat rentals at Gordy’s was 140.00 an hour. No thank you. Will not be returning.

Thank you for sharing your candid feedback with us. I'm sorry to read that the resort did not live up to expectations. We do have two outdoor pools along with two indoor pools for our guests to use. Much of the seating has been removed around the immediate pool areas to promote social spacing, but at our outdoor pools those chairs have been placed around our grounds so that our guests can still enjoy relaxing outdoors. If you do visit the Lake Geneva area again, I would recommend walking the unique Lake Shore Path where you can stroll through the properties of all of the lakefront homes.

We are here right now. We go to check-in and of course the room was not ready, along with 50 other people. They will call us. The place is packed. After 1 hour and waiting in a huge line again, our room was ready but they were too busy to call us. Get to our room which is nice but the bathroom has an empty soap box and the outside door has an empty beer bottle. Finally go out to eat, no restaurant has room. I come back to the room to call the front desk because they don't give you any info about anything and I wanted a list of restaurants in the area. The phone doesn't work. I then call on my cell and no one picks up the phone. Not sure what we are paying for. We are here for 3 days but thinking we are going to leave tomorrow.
