This was our first stay at Cove Haven. We stayed 2 nights in the Champagne Tower for just a romantic getaway. All in all we had a good time and it is very expensive. But where else would you find a heated pool in your room? I wouldn't spend the extra money for the Champagne Tower though. The outside of the rooms look like outdated motel rooms. And the round building with no windows is just odd (not sure what rooms those are). The grounds are nice. The Champagne Tower & probably all the rooms need a facelift. Most everything is outdated & a bit cheesy with red cheap furniture, red carpet, red bulbs in some lights, old tv in sitting room. There is a flat screen tv in the bedroom. But you're really not there to watch tv :). The wood burning fireplace in the sitting room is a nice touch. It's cheaper to bring your own logs. We spent lots of time in the heated pool, it was awesome! I can't review the massage table or sauna since we didn't use those but some people might appreciate having those available. There is also a steam shower but we didn't use that either. The round bed wasn't the most comfortable but not awful. And it is king sized so that's nice. The bathroom was clean but the furniture in the bedroom had not been dusted in awhile. Its bad when you wipe the side tables with your hand and there's dust on your hand. Pieces of the ceiling tile in the pool room had fallen onto the tile floor & were not cleaned up when we arrived or during our stay. That makes me feel like the floor in the pool room was not cleaned. Hmm, what else wasn't cleaned? There's a mini fridge but no microwave or coffee pot. Bring drinks & snacks to save money.
The included breakfast & dinner was ok. I personally don't like buffets since the food doesn't stay hot but it was not cold & there was a good variety & plenty of it. Friday night was Italian night & Saturday was steak night. Saturday's dinner was not a buffet & cooked to order. Service was good. Why they have group seating at a couple's resort is beyond me but you can ask to be seated alone. My husband is shy so that was a better option for us. They didn't have a problem accomodating us which is nice. I imagine if the resort is full, you might have to wait for a table for 2.
The band & comedian is also included. We went 1 night & had an ok time. Remember, alcohol is not included in the price. The XXX Newlywed Game on Saturday was funny but not if you are offended by sex talk & language. Phil did warn everyone at the show on Fri night. They serve nachos & wings then for an extra charge.
Phil does the deer feeding at 4:15 and its a must see! There are lots of deer & its a joy to be able to see them up close. Drive slow through the resort & be alert because they are everywhere & sometimes just stroll across the road.
Since you are on your own for lunch, there is a cafe on sight at an extra charge. But usually we ate a late breakfast so didn't really need lunch. There is free wifi in the cafe but not the rooms.
I can't comment on the activities since we didn't do anything. But they have pool tables, arcade games, ice skating, roller skating, mini golf, etc.
So, like I said, we had a good time because our main focus was reconnecting as a couple. We may go again when we save up some money but might try out one of the sister properties.
