“A Nice Option For A Quick Get-away”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Like most people that rely on tripadvisor I was torn as to if this is a good option. The good reviews are very good and there are a lot of them and the poor reviews create a lot of concern. We dediced to just go for it and we are happy that we did. The staff was excellent and very accomodating. I would like to point out one person in particular which is Lillie. She went above and beyond to make sure that our expectations were met and she had a big influence on making our trip a plesant one. You are a true asset to your company! We booked the trip thru the starwood web site which had an impact on bringing the cost down. I thought that the best way to write this review would be with pros and cons......

Pros:
Very Accomodating staff that go above and beyond to take care of the guests.
Rooms (ours had a private pool)clean, comfortable and a nice place to enjoy romantic time with your loved one.
Ammenities - Enough to do for 24 hours to relax and also keep busy.
The band M80 was excellent and sounded great.
Food was not exceptional but was good enough. There was enough to eat between breakfast, coctail hour, and dinner to not need to buy your own food.

Cons:
Merle -one of the event people was a total tool. We have the most broad sense of humor but he was flat out mean to some of the guests and his jokes were not even funny. I think more people were hurt by his words than humored. You really need to get rid of that guy. He hurts the resort more than he helps. He never said anything offensive to us but we could see the hurt on some of the guests that he singled out.

It was raining on Friday which is out of the resorts control but it would have been nice to be able to walk to everything. We needed to drive around the resort to attend different activities.

Some of the activities need updating. The shuffle board and archery was in rough shape. We enjoyed takeing the paddle boats and row boats out but it is really a pond not a lake. Would be a little bit better if was an actual lake.

Cost- I agree with a previous reviewer how the cost is just too high for a night in the poconos. If they were able to create a better value it would benefit the resort (more people spending money on drinks) and create better night life for the guests. I understand the need for profit margins but as the attendance indicated... it is too expensive and I think that is a turn off for people. Maybe they could create value weekends that would make it more appealing for couples that are looking for an AFFORDABLE quick get away to spend time together.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade when you check in.

When we checked in, to our surprise they upgraded us to a beautiful Suite with a added pool and fireplace. We also had a pink shaped Jacuzzi tub with a starlight mirror ceiling above, a round bed and a shower for two. The Suite was just renovated and really really clean. We arrived too late for breakfast, so we ate at the Spooner Cafe. Where we ordered a Hamburgh and a Hugh chopped up chichen with peppers, onions cheese and May. Sub. It was really good, but couldn't finish it so I saved it for later. We enjoyed playing some of the acitivies within the Resort. We played pool, some of the games outside, like shuffle broad, horseshoes,and bocce. We enjoyed the outside pool, and hasdseveral drinks around it and at the outside bar
The food for breakfact was outstanding. You could order off the menu or if there was something else you wanted, all you had to do was ask and the waitress checked wtih th Chef.
He fullfilled all our request. And every morning before breakfast, they had in the Lobby, coffee and pastries between 7 AM till I beleive 8:30am. The Dinner menu was just as good and it was the same way. Soup, salad main course and of course the delicious Ice Cream with all the topping you help yourself too. But that's not all, they also serve a sampler plate of desserts. Different every night. It could be a brownie, cheesecake, lemon cake, rasberry cake. About 5 to 6 different items on it. Believe me to die for. There was a Casino right across the rood, with the other couple with us own $1,000. Not to bad ha.
We just had a great time there. Oh almost forgot the entertainment. Live Music, Comedians. DJ, ect. Most were good, some not so good. But just to sit there with your Loved one is enjoyment alone. I know for a fact we will return next year, but this time we will try more activities
at the other properties which we were aloud to use. Everyone there, Thank you for the wonderful time. In fact we even stayed an extra day

My boyfriend and I just returned from a stay at Paradise Stream, we had stayed at cove haven back in march. We had a fantastic time! When we arrived we were upgraded from a jacuzzi suite to the garden of eden apple (aka we went from the lowest level to a suite with a pool in it!) We loved it, sure the decor is outdated, and it isn't the picture of luxury, but if you are in love you'll have a great time. The room was also very clean, which was really important. The best part about these resorts is that when you arrive, you can just relax and enjoy each others company.

There are daily activities, we chose do participate in the wine pairing course which was very informative, and played bingo later on. We ended up winning some money and a bottle of champagne. It is a little smaller than cove haven, but we found that to be very convenient as everything is within a reasonable walking distance. The food selection wasn't quite as large as cove haven's, but we enjoyed everything. The staff are super friendly and helpful, and if you have any questions or concerns they are quick to help.

We also really liked the town, and took a trip out to the Candle Shoppe which was well worth the trip, the basement is haunted and they give you a historical tour. Paradise Stream also runs a 24 hour shuttle to Mount Airy Casino which we took advantage of for a nice night out when we weren't too interested in the night club options. We also had a chance to visit the outlets which are nearby.

Also - The $75 gratuity charge that other are complaining about was always explained to me upfront, and listed on the the email receipts I received before check-in. I think its a great way to ensure guests have one less thing to worry about. Breakfast and dinner are all inclusive so it makes sense to include the gratuity as part of the bill. (Because of the timing of the meals, we never needed to eat lunch, we just brought some snacks) We did always tip bartenders and usually our waiters when it wasn't buffet style. It's the same kids from breakfast all the way to night club hours, so throwing them a five for keeping a smile on and making sure we have a great meal didn't hurt us.

Overall we had a great time, and hope to return to paradise stream in the fall for our anniversary :)

Room Tip: There are only four "Jacuzzi Suites" on the resort, so if you book them there's a good...

I have visited this resort twice during two different seasons. The activities change depending on the season. Our intitial visit was during the summer. We stayed in the Diana's Oasis room. I loved the fact that the room had a jacuzzi and a small wading pool in the room. I did not like the musty smell and falling wall paper on the walls. I also loved the fact that you pay one fee and everything is included. The room, activities, breakfast and dinner, and entertainment are all included in what can seem like an expensive price. But if you paid for these things separately you would probably end up paying, if not more, the same amount. Prices vary depending on the resort room that you choose. The meals were pretty good, and you can order breakfast in bed for no extra charge. You can order everything on the menu because everything is included in your fee. We also enjoyed the activities. They offer competitive couples activites or you can engage in activities with just you and your significant other. My husband and I went fishing on their small pond, bicycle riding, played shuffle board, basketball and archery. We also swam in the outside pool. I felt like it was a summer camp for lover! Our second trip was during the winter. Our room was much better because we were fortunate enough to be placed in a room that was remodeled. The entertainment on both visits were wonderful. There is nightly entertainment which consist of bands, comediens, ventriloquest, or The Newlywed Game. The Cove Haven resort has the better entertainment. They have big name performers like Sinbad, Jerry Seinfeild, The Whispers, Howie Mandel etc. The entertainment at all of the resorts vary depending on when you book your stay. Wonderful place for honeymooners.

Room Tip: It depends on what you want. All of the rooms except the "lakeside Villa" have a small wad...

We went as a second Honeymoon after renewing our vows. Apon arriving we were very cherfully greeted at the door. Lovely clean and bright lobby. When we checked in we were given our directions to our room. Even though we were just off the highway you would never know it as ir was soooo quiet. Arriving to our suite it was spotless and bright. We were surprised by our Concierge with a box of chocolates and a welcome card. The pool in the room was wonderful the jacuzzi came in handy after horseback riding and hiking. :) The food was very good and very plentiful breakfast and dinner (no lunch really needed). Everyone was just so nice and helpful. It was a 4 day trip and well worth the cost.
