My wife and I traveled there for a relaxing weekend and that's exactly what we got. The hotel was booked solid the weekend of October 26 to October 28th. There were Two weddings and a business conference.....I think we may have booked the last room available. Anyway....
The rooms were renovated (with in the last couple years is my guess) comfortable beds, large TV, ample sitting room and the views were AWESOME! Bathroom had double vanity sinks (granite), large tub/shower combination. The water pressure was a little low, I'm assuming it was because the hotel was booked solid, but no big deal, it got the job done.
The waterfront restaurant had beautiful views of the Abbey Harbor and GREAT food compared to the last time we were there...not sure if they got a new chef or management or what but there has been a lot of improvement. The little sundry store next to the waterfront restaurant has everything you need in case you forgot to pack something and also has a lot of other things (t-shirts, sweatshirts, snacks, magazines, etc.) in case you are looking for a small gift for your kids or whatever.
The Avani Spa is Awesome!!!!! Relaxation at it's best. I did not get any treatments but wife did and she said that the massage she received rivaled the one she got at The Four Seasons in Maui! She loved it! I'm not sure who her therapist was but she has not stopped raving about it. I used the adults only pool area, the steam room in the men's locker room and the hot tub. All great. I'm a larger man and the larger sized robes (I asked for it) were very comfortable.
All in all this was a great getaway and I would recommend this resort to any couple looking to getaway for the weekend. They also have another indoor pool (the outdoor pool area was closed being that we traveled in late October, but I have heard good things about that as well) that is great for families if you want to bring the kids :)
We travel to the Lake Geneva Area two to three times a year and we always stay at the Abbey! You can't beat it.
