“Great Space”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We recently stayed at the Delavan Lake Resort. We were two couples and chose a lake view 2 bedroom suite. Loved it. Very roomy and well-equiped. The view was amazing and we were also overlooking the outdoor pool. Friendly, helpful hosts. Close to some good dining options. Everything was excellent.
I gave only 2 stars because if you don't get a lake view room, you will be looking at a residential street or parking area.

Room Tip: If the view matters to you, be sure to pay the extra cost and reserve one of the lake view rooms.

Our family of four stayed for a weekend. We liked the condo flexibility with a kitchen and dining area. There is no stove so a longer term stay wouldn't be as nice if you are expecting to cook a dinner or two at the condo. Overall we liked the property. We booked a non lake view but could see the lake to the side from our balcony. Only issue was the people below us smoked a lot and we kept getting cig smell in our condo so we had to close windows a lot.

The indoor hot tub and pool was not busy and we spent time there - very relaxing. There isn't really any place to walk other than down the road to the park nearby. There is a place to eat walking the other way. Lake Delavan is MUCH less a touristy area than Lake Geneva. Unless you have a boat (we didn't) there is not much to do right there on property. The area is full of things to do though. You are ten minutes from Lake Geneva.

Upkeep was good. We say maintenace doing work on a door in the pool. Only issue in our condo was a broken switch for a light. Staff was friendly. We would stay again with our family. If we came as a couple for a weekend we would try a B&B in Lake Geneva next time.

Room Tip: Try for side facing room toward the back to get better view of lake without paying for lake view.

My fiance and I stayed here for 1 night on a quick getaway from Chicago. The grounds are very nice and right on the lake. The lady at the front desk was VERY NICE. She even took care of making dinner reservations for us. The room was nice. It was a 1br condo with a kitchen (no stove but a multi purpose microwave. I would definitely visit again.

Great food, great staff, will be returning next year with the family. Plenty of area things to do including the beach and many restaurants. It is close to golfing and horseback riding for the kids. We go every year and get the same great service.

This resort served our purpose, a family weekend getaway. With two bedrooms and two baths, we had ample space. The kids loved the pool. However, the place could use some maintenance. Stairway and elevator carpets were dirty and the carpeting in the pool area was stained. The fence and railings could use a coat of paint. Most disappointing was the "fitness center" which had antiquated equipment, a broken treadmill and an out-of-order TV. It is a shame, really, because the place definitely has potential. Certainly not for $278/night though!

Rooms are spacious, clean, and beautiful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with kitchen (no stove but a multifunctioning convection/micro unit). The view was awesome as we watched sail boats on the lake into the sunset.

The staff is helpful and fun and cared about the guests. They are doing some minor repairs on the building, but nothing that was bothersome.

Room Tip: Odd numbers seem to be lakeside. Suite 323 was wonderful.

The resort has great potential. It needs some Tender Loving Care, though. The carpets near the pool are stained, and our room had several minor maintenance issues (dresser drawers that didn't fit properly, a loose seal on the refrigerator, a missing curtain in a bedroom.) Most upsetting were the silverfish that we saw in the kitchenette. The staff did seem to be constantly cleaning the common areas and pools, but more work is needed. We also felt rushed at check-out time, as the front desk asked if we were "out of room" yet each time that we passed the desk with load of luggage.

Room Tip: The lake view is very nice. Corner suites have a better common area for gathering/entertaining.
