I was doubtful with the negative reviews of Cove Haven because they were from one-time reviewers. Recently I cashed SPG points and stayed there for one night. Here is my experience.
I stayed at the Harbour Tower room with round bed, heart shaped Jacuzzi and glass shower. The bed is not Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed. The room décor is ancient but it is comfortable, clean and well-maintained. It has an old TV with integrated VHS player. All fixtures work properly. The missing parts are additional outlets to charge mobile phone and other electronics. Don’t forget to bring bubble bath since they are not provided, or you can use shampoo.
At the dining table, I was seated in the same table with other people I did not know. I met nice people from Philadelphia and Toronto. Food is decent: salad, bruschetta, pasta with three types of sauce (Alfredo, Marinara and Vodka), ravioli, meatballs, chicken parmesan, fried calamari, cod, sole with crabmeat (crab is perhaps 1%, the rest is just filling), sausages, steam vegetable, zucchini, tiramisu, lemon cake, canoli, chocolate fountain with strawberry and marshmallow.
See my photos of the “Quickie” breakfast-in-bed. My friend told me the breakfast looks like quick delivery from Burger King. The difference is you get free small Italian Spumante (alcoholic sparkling wine). Breakfast is decent. As a Starwood Gold Preferred Guest, I requested late check out at 2 PM. My request was denied. I had to leave at 1 PM.
Overall I like the resort. I do not have time to check the night entertainment and other activities. I would come back to the resort if they let me have a late check out.
