We had a fabulous time! The kids pool is awesome especially the huge wading pool for my toddler. We had an amazing dinner and s'mores were provided in a separate area afterwards for guests which my daughter loved. I will be back for a family vacation very soon!

My husband and I have been to the Abbey several times and have been happy with the location and amenities. We have had some issues with the service in the restaurants, but overall really enjoyed the resort.

We stayed here recently for the wedding of some friends. We hadn't been to the Abbey for years, and what a pleasant surprise greeted us on this visit. It looks as though some serious updating has been going on. The rooms aren't huge but they are very comfortable. Ours overlooked a pool and courtyard. Very pretty. This would be a...

We love the Abbey and have stayed here three years in a row. The staff is friendly, the grounds are pretty and the proximity to the lake is great for renting wave runners or walking around the lake. My biggest complaint is the thin walls. We can hear our neighbors as if they are in the room with us. Absolutely...

My daughter and I did a "back to school" overnight at the Abbey last week. This is my favorite hotel in the Lake Geneva area, mostly because of the Avani Spa. Truthfully, I've had much better manicures for less than $50, but being able to use the spa is the reason we go. I can't say everyone working there was...

Having recently visited to attend a wedding, this hotel is in a beautiful location. Spa is very good especially the hairdressing ladies. They made the whole party feel relaxed on a very special day.
