As my wedding day approached I held the responsibility of booking our honeymoon. I wanted to do something original, not an all-inclusive Cancun honeymoon. With my perfect hindsight vision I now see that the latter would have been a much better choice. My jaw almost dropped through the floorboard of the van when I saw a giant heart-shaped sign with "Now entering the land of love". It was quite obvious that I had not booked the dream honeymoon I had hoped for.

I will be honest, the room is what drew me in. A 7 foot tall champagne glass hot tub??!?!?! And I must say that I was not disappointed by that main attraction. But the double levels and the in room pool and sauna were not anything exceptional. We got into the pool once and that was enough for us. Nor was the bedding, as other reviewers noted, it felt like foam and was extremely uncomfortable. Also, noted by other reviewers is the musty smell of the room making it quite obvious that there had been little if any renovations done recently.

Shortly before we arrived they had just finished remodeling the main building where the restaurant and front desk are located and I will say that they did a great job. However, this did not help the food any. It was sub-par at best. And the forced group seating was awkward. I am a fairly outgoing person, but I was not there to be social, I was there to be with my wife and was not even given the option of an intimate dinner with her. Needless to say, we only ate there once.

We were extremely thankful for the complimentary day trip getaway to New York City. That was perhaps the highlight of our stay, as far as the resort is concerned. And the staff were very courteous and always willing to do anything we needed. We had not rented a car and they were always willing to take us anywhere we asked, even to dinner.

The events on-site were bland. Bingo during the day? Not that you were required to play, but there wasn't much else to do given the torrential downpour outside. Thankfully, one of the security guards alerted us to the XXX Newlywed game early in our stay because that is not a game most wish to participate in unless they have had quite a few drinks, which if bought at the bar requires a small loan.

I would not recommend this resort to anyone, literally no one...

First I think that as hokey as it may seem, everyone should hit the pocono's for tacky romantic weekend away at least once in their lives. That being said, upon entering the resort we were greeted with the "Land of Love" sign (check out the pictures posted on TripAdvisor and you will see it) and the 1970's architecture of the resorts buildings. I even found a promotional video for the Pocono's on YouTube that was hysterical from the 1970's - surf for it you will find it. First impression was that the place is dated on the outside and could use a bit of sprucing up, but we were not going to let that deter us from our mission to get some well deserved R&R!

The front desk staff was VERY friendly and accomodating. There was also a staff member dressed as a "chef" statue holding the menu for the dining area (we didn't realize it was a real person until it jump at us and scared us practically out of our skin). We all had a good laugh! Our room was ready when we arrived and such is there policy if you check in while they are serving breakfast they will let you partake! So we dropped our bags in the room and headed for the diningroom for some nourishment.

We were staying at the resort over SuperBowl weekend so everything was decorated and geared towards game day. Apparently breakfast is usually served off of a menu a la carte style unless there is a special event going on (maybe a higher volume of customers?) then they have a buffet style. The buffet was good, fresh with plenty of options, eggs, homefries, french toast, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit etc... is it five star, no, it is hot and fresh and filling, yes, again the staff in the dining room was very friendly and responsive. You can even have champagne with breakfast upon request.

Our room was clean and tidy upon check in. There was some obvious wear on the occasional chairs and just inside the door a piece of moulding was missing but other than that everything was in good order. We opted for "Diana'a Oasis" as personally I felt this was the most tastefully decorated and we were not disappointed. The dual head walk in shower was fantastic, the jacuzzi tub was in good working order, the pool was just the right temperature (there was some obvious wear on the pool as well, it could use with some reconditioning). The fireplace was in the pool area and while it was very nice to enjoy in the pool, you could not really enjoy it from the rest of the room.

The bed was relatively comfortable, could have been a bit softer for my taste and it would have been nice to have some more luxurious bedding instead of the cotton/poly bedspread and sheets. It's my understanding that the resort is owned by Starwood Resorts who also owns the Sheraton chain, they should take a hint from their Sheraton hotels and kick up the beds / bedding a notch to the "Sweet Slepper Bedding" they offer in their other facilities:

[--]
Maybe they don't make this bedding for circular beds? LOL

After breakfast we decided to take advantage of the "snowmobiling". They had very little natural snow while we were up there and they were making snow on their baseball field (in the summers apparently they organize baseball games for the guests). I have attached a couple of pictures to my review of us "snowmobiling" which really consisted of us driving the snowmobiles around in a big circle for 15 minutes. If you are an avid snowmobiler (own your own and are used to trail riding) you will be bored out of your skull, however, if you have never ridden a snowmobile and want to give it a try this is the perfect opportunity to do that. We were a little disappointed that they did not have enough snow for the sleigh rides as that would have been something we would have liked to do.

During the day the Activities Directors had all sorts of "pre-game" fun planned for the couples - some athletic - some mental but all fun. In the game room, we also took advantage of the ping pong and pool tables. There is snack bar over in the building where the games are, but that is not included in the price of your stay, snacks and beverages need to be purchased.

I would concur with another TripAdvisor visitor that the workout facilities are in the same room as the games and that should be rectified, I too would not want to be working out in front of someone playing pool... so if nice workout facities are your thing, this is NOT the place for you.

We went to dinner on Sunday night (SuperBowl night) and again they had a buffet set up - many choices to be had, again food was hot and filling, service was good, was it five star - no - but satisfying. The activies director was selling squares for a Superbowl pool in the dining room which added to the upcoming excitement of the game. We certainly should NOT have eated as much as we did at dinner because they had a whole spread for the game, Nachos, Hot Dogs, Pretzels, Snacks..... unbelieveable! They decorated the nightclub with all sorts of NFL garb for both teams - very festive - the game was shown on a 14 foot projection TV - oh ya! We found out that there are several couples who met at the resort years ago over Superbowl weekend and have been coming back the same weekend ever since....

On Monday, we headed over to Camelback Mountain to do a 1/2 day of skiing. It's a small mountain, nothing too challenging, but it was fun to get out in the fresh air. Seeing it was Monday, the lifts were not busy and we got several runs in. It was overcast and foggy at the top and towards the end of the day it started to rain lightly (they actually closed the mountain due to rain on Tuesday). If you are a highly skilled skier who wants to be challenged this is NOT your Mountain, if you want to do some casual skiing in a nice facility with attractive vista's (from what we could see of them) this is a good bet.

The resort gives you a flier at breakfast every morning that tells you what organized activities they have for the day, the drink of the day etc... (similar to the one we got every morning when we took a cruise). They are very good at keeping you informed.

My overall impression is this: It's an expensive vacation, and for what it's costing you some might expect FIVE STAR everything, but you are not going to get it (food, bedding, etc...are adequate and average) what you are paying for is atmosphere (heart shaped jacuzzi, pool in your room, no kids, organized activities). We went there to have a quiet, relaxing weekend away, with activities available to us if we wanted them, did we get it? Absolutely we did. Would we go back, I would say so, I would like to try a different room with the fireplace in the room and perhaps one with a Sauna. Or perhaps we would go to one of their other resorts, we were told to try Pocono Palace next time. I think that EVERYONE should try this type of vacation at least once with an open mind, it was fun and relaxing - what more do you want?

We stayed at Paradise Stream in Mt Pocono last weekend in a Garden of Eden Apple suite. We checked in on Friday morning at 11:00 and were immediately given the key to our room and allowed to check in early. The front desk staff was pleasant and professional. After reading some of the reviews here, we were scared to open the suite door. To our relief, the room was wonderful. It was clean as a whistle, everything was in working condition, the in-room pool was a perfect temperature, etc. After about 30 minutes, the front desk called us to make sure everything was okay. We decided to go snowmobiling but due to lack of snow, we were confined to a small softball field of man-made snow and could only go in a circle, which was okay for about 5 minutes but then it became boring. We attended a cooking demonstration where we were given free Bloody Mary's and Thai Chicken wraps, both of which were delicious. Meals are communal - each table holds eight people. They don't allow you to sit by yourself. It wasn't bad - we met some nice people, made some small talk, not a big deal unless you really hate that kind of thing. Friday night was an "Italian Feast" -- let me say the food wasn't bad, it was just mediocre. The bruschetta app was good, the salad was okay but then, we were given a piece of cod, one piece chicken parmagiana, one canelloni, and one scoop of gnocchi. It was all kind of bland. SInce we've already paid for the food (it's "all inclusive"), we just ate what we wanted from the selection and had some deserts, which were good. We didn't see anyone coming around offering seconds on the food but we could have just missed that. The entertainment that evening was a band and a comedian. The band was fun -- it was like a high-end wedding band playing everything from oldies to Justin Timberlake. The comedian, however, was horrible...no, that doesn't even describe it. He was horrendous. Totally not funny, didn't even seem to have an act prepared. Just got up and started talking about whatever - jumping from subject to subject, telling the audience to yell out topics, most of which he had nothing remotely interesting to say about them. I've seen some bad comedians in my day, but this guy took the cake. They would have been better off just having the band play all night. The comedian cleared the room faster than if someone yelled "fire". The breakfast the next day was again, just mediocre, bordering on bad. The only really good part was the bacon. Saturday night dinner was Strip Night - it's steak night. The food on Saturday night was very good - appetizers, soup, salad, entree and deserts. I asked for porterhouse medium rare and it was cooked perfectly and the sides were also good. The only odd thing was, someone at the table asked for a container because they couldn't finish their steak and they were refused with no reason given. Just told "no, you can't do that." Now, we've paid an outrageous amount of money for these rooms with food included - if someone wants to finish their steak later, what's the big deal? We skipped the entertainment Saturday night, after being scared off by the previous night's comedian. We enjoyed a romantic evening in our room. The music system is pretty cool - it's a BOSE radio/CD - we brought our own CDs and the speakers worked all over the room, including closed off in room pool area. Overall, if you want to get away and have a romantic weekend and enjoy each other's company in the room, this is a great place. If you're looking for great food and Vegas style entertainment, you'll probably be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed in the Garden of Eden Apple suite. The room was laid out well and had a nice feel to it. We had plenty of space but still felt cozy. We wanted to get away for the weekend to just relax. The suite served that purpose. There are no windows nor clocks in the suite so if you want to escape it is up to you. It was nice to sit in the jacuzzi and watch a movie. Be mindful that you have to dig out your old VHS tapes as there is not a dvd player. Bring cds as the room does have a bose player with speakers in each room that sounds great. Real nice to have hear it playing while in the pool. The in suite pool was great and really is the selling point for me. I do have a few complaints though. The rooms are a bit dated and worn and everything is not what it seems. I was disappointed that their web site showed certain amenities that were not present. One example being the blush beds with satin sheets. The sheets were old and cotton and the bed was soft and sagged, more than a little worn out. Go figure, anyway that was disappointing we were looking forward to a comfortable bed. The food is hit or miss. We ate at their Steak (Strip) Night. My wife’s meal was very good, however mine was unrecognizable and the couple next to us returned their meal twice and wound up choosing not to eat. They were offered a free drink to make up for it? The food could be and should be better considering the cost of the resort. But let’s face it most of us are not there for the food or the entertainment from decades past. I must say that the service was good. One tip if you order food or alcohol to the room it gets pricey, so take advantage of the in room refrigerator. I do not mean for this to be a negative review as I had a great time, just mentioning things so you are not surprised. If you are looking to spend a night or two with your significant other that is out of the ordinary, this is the place.

We stayed in the Champagne Towers and loved it! The room was great! We read the reviews and knew what to expect. The rooms could use some updating in décor, but overall the room was great. We enjoyed our meal. Our steaks were fantastic. I highly recommend this resort. It is worth every cent in what affect it can have on your marriage.
