“Let's do the time warp again!”
Reviewed June 20, 2004

It's hard to decribe how I feel about this trip. We stayed the weekend of May 22 for our fifth wedding anniversary.

When my husband and I saw the sign and pulled into the property we were saying "no way!" From the moment you see the place, you feel as though your time machine has worked. And it has taken you back to the era of late 70s/early 80s cheese. There is lots of red and black and weird smells for sure. But the staff was wonderful and bent over backwards to be friendly and accomodating.

Upon entering our room (a Garden of Eden Apple) I had a mini panic attack. The building looks like a prison from the outside and the inside looked like the set from "A Clockwork Orange." There are no windows in order to keep things private and "romantic" but it creeped us out to feel caged in and have no clue when the sun rose and set.

While it was completely outdated and stunk of must and mildew, it was actually clean. It was a non-smoking room, but this is a newer policy and the smell of years before cigarettes permeated the carpeting. I actually felt physically ill the entire time I was in the room. Housekeeping brought in an "ionozer" which didn't help at all. But a few glasses of wine helped out with that. And for the records, the drinks are insanely pricey. Each time we visited the bar and each ordered a drink it was $18.50--so $20 w/tip. Good thing we smuggled our own champagne for the anniversary.

The activities and entertaiment were weak, but amusing. The house band and singer Byrd Pressley was HILARIOUS. He simulated a five minute orgasm onstage. Oh, did I mention that there are constant sexual innuendos that never stop? See the XXX Not-so Newleywed Game if you'd like to see what kinky stuff your dinner table mates like. If you're the slightest bit prudish or conservative this place is not for you!

It's strange, but we feel like we want to go back. Maybe there were subliminal messages pumped in with the musty smells. I know the review sounds pretty bad, but there was something endearing about this place. Who knows, maybe we'll become members of the Forever Lover's club or as Will Ferrell would say "Luv-ah!"

I purchased a night at Paradise Streams in Diana's Oasis room as an anniversary gift to my husband. We stayed there April 30th. While I was growing up near the Poconos, I passed by this resort and several other resorts while visiting my family. Needless to say, I kind of knew what type of place it was before we got there. The outside appearance needs a lot of approving. It isn't falling apart. It's just not extremely attractive looking. Many of the buildings look like large dormitories. But once you get inside the room (at least ours- room 527), the appearance is beautiful. Diana's Oasis was recently remodeled. The entrance was nicely done with beautiful tile that lead into the bathroom that was all tiled. The shower was very nice with a large built-in bench under the shower head. The round bed was surprisingly comfortable. There was also the heart shaped hottub. A separate glassed in room housed the kidney shaped mini pool about 6 feet long by 3 feet wide and 5 feel deep. It had the old purple tile floor but the 2.5 walls were newly tiled with the remaing being mirrored and a nice fireplace. The ceiling had a skylight. The tiled floor in the pool area could use some remodelling, as well as the pool's ladder.

Activities- We walked the nature trail, which was nice and relaxing. We did go to the Lounge for appetisers and played the movie trivia game. The Lounge reminded me of an 80s disco theatre, but it was nice enough. Drinks here at the lounge are not included. 2 small cokes were $4. The appetisers were ok. Dinner was buffet. There were a lot a good selections. You will be seated with other couples for dinner. Since we went there to spend time together, I wasn't very excited about being forced to mingle with others, but everyone was very nice. There was a nice guy who played the "stick", which is a modified type of guitar. After dinner, we went to see the comedian that was in the Lounge, Maria Welch. When we got there, the band Navada was playing. The band was ok, but the female singer was awful. The comedian was very good. I felt bad for her because there weren't a lot of people there but the hotel was obviously not full. The next morning we got breakfast in bed (fill out the form the day before at the reception's desk). We got pancakes, scrambled eggs, has browns, croissant, cold cereal, milk, orange juice, sausage, bacon, and champagne. Breakfast and dinner are included in the price. And both were excellent. Before we left we took a pedal boat out on the small pond/lake and fished. There are also plenty of other great activities there including horseback riding right next door.

I highly recommend Paradise Streams. We did drive to see Pocono Palace. We found it to be to overcrowded and more focused on golf (which we don't do). PS was very cozy and intimate and is for romantics.

Wow, after reading some of these reviews, I must put my opinion in. We went last year during our honeymoon, we had a wonderful time, the staff and activities were great! Something went wrong along the way. We recently stayed on March 21, 2004-March 25, 2004. I could not wait to leave. We stayed in the so-called new room Diana's Oasis. It was an oasis allright. The room is suppose to be newly renovated. However, our entrance to the room we were greeted with dirty towels near the door along with a dirty pool. We called maintenance and housekeeping to fix the pool, but they did nothing to clean it, "just took a look at it." On top of that, all of the events and competition they had for the day didn't happen. They said for people to meet them at certain places for activities but no one was there to greet you from the staff. The overall experience was very disappointing. When we complained to the Manager, "Kamar", he did nothing to accomodate us. For a place to claim to be a 4-5 star resort, you would think you would receive better service. There service during this last stay sucked big time. YOU GUYS NEED TO CHECK YOURSELF!! Cove Haven maybe a better resort although they all suppose to give you the same service. Cove Haven staff however seems to be over-worked and the same staff parade around for every event and you can get real tired of seeing the same ugly faces again after again.
