REASON AND FIRST IMPRESSION-
My husband and I decided with our 3 year Wedding Anniversary coming up that we would try to do a nice weekend getaway just the two of us. I like probably many others have read the Good, Bad and Ugly reviews prior to booking this Resort. We checked in on October 9th and we got to the Resort early because we couldn't wait to start our getaway. As we walked into the Resort we were greeted with a nice smile and a Hello! . We informed the desk clerk that we were aware that we were early , but we did have a reservation. She checked us in we settled up and then she informed us since we were there to please go enjoy the resort and asked us to please leave a number for when our room was ready. We enjoyed many of the activities they offered , we took a nature walk, a boat ride ,and just wandered the resort to get familiar with it . I must admit it was absolutely breath taking the lake, the trees Fall really is a beautiful season... but anyway back to the review. So we finally got a call that our room was ready and she told us she apologized that we had to wait so long , but it was one of there most booked weekends and for the wait the offered us a 1pm checkout because we actually didn't get into our room till after 3:30pm which is the normal check-in.
Let me just say the moment we opened the door it was breathtaking! We chose the Fantasy Apple and I couldn't smell any chemicals or chlorine if anything the room smelt fresh and cleaned .We decided we would of course do a tour of the room and to be quite honest one of the lights in the bathroom wasn't working properly and I called the front desk and they had someone over to fix it within a half hour. The tub was beautiful and the pool was amazing , it just had such a warm feeling to the place and it included our own private balcony with a view of Echo Lake it was a great room!!
We happened to check in on the night they were having a DJ, The NY Rat Pack, and Two comedians .....we really enjoyed our evening it was a great experience .We then went back to our room and enjoyed the rest of the evening.
what it boils down to in a nutshell, is The food was great, the entertainment was amazing even on the weeknights they always had some kind of activities going on and we chose to participate in them all and I am glad we did because it was one of the best times we ever had and we will be returning to the Resorts because it was exactly what we needed !!! All in all I would highly recommend this Pocono Palace to anyone who is looking to just spend some quality couple time. As far as the T.V and all who cares I know we didn't we weren't there to watch T.V we were there to have a romantic weekend but for the record we went on a tour of all the rooms and they did say they are currently remodeling and putting more updated T.V 's and amenities in the rooms. Thank you Pocono Palace for making it such a wonderful stay for us.
