I was never a fan of the Pocono's until a friend told me about Skytop. The reviews on this site are very accurate. On the negative side, the rooms need updating, I doubt they have the $ to do so. We had a 13" TV in our room. Flat screen on the wall with pay preview movies would be a win/win especially on a rainning evening when you just need to unwind in your room after a day of outdoor activities. My son and I were there on a Mon-Wed in August. It was about 50% ocupied. Another negative is that I think they price themselves too high and no matter how they want to try and sell you on the meals included, all activities etc, it's still to high. Lastly, it would be nice to see some signs of security on the property.
On the plus side. My 9 yr old loved it! Every kid I saw on the property was having a blast. The staff, especially the bellhops/valet were amazing. Friendly and helpful. The food in the main lodge, part of the meal plan is top notch and so is the service.
The grounds and hotel are beautiful. My son caught a huge large mouth bass in the lake and they also have a seperate lake for swimming in addition to their indoor or outdoor pools.
I would recommend a visit before someplace as beautiful and special as Skytop is taken over by a Casino. The photos on their website are accurate. You are on top of a mountain and made to feel like a special guest. I was even impressed with the teenagers they hire. Very polite and they took their jobs seriously, especially the life guards at the swimming lake!
