We had a wedding at the Abbey Resort in early August of 2014 and had very high expectations... all of which were exceeded! We had our ceremony right next to the lake, a cocktail hour on the main patio, and the reception in the ballroom. From the planning stages to the day after, the staff was incredibly helpful and informative,...

Most enjoyable couple of days. We were on a little retreat. The rooms were a little dated but I think that's what gave it it's charm. Some of us swam, some did the spa there was plenty to do that we ran out of time before we ran out of activities.

We recently stayed here for a seminar with a large group. This hotel is gorgeous! It is spread out over 7 two story buildings and doesn't feel crowded. The rooms are large and the bed very comfortable. The service was excellent. We saw several weddings while there and they looked so nice. The hotel is right on the lake so...

Attended a two day meeting with about 30 individuals at the Abbey. Overall it was a very good experience. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I saw from some other reviews that there were some issues with construction and remodeling. That work must be completed as I didn't experience it. The main areas of the hotel (lobby, restaurants, etc.)...

Always get the upgraded bigger suite. Totally worth it and has the better views of the lake. Further, most of the suites are then located for easy access to the indoor and outdoor pool areas. This place always has various activities and events going on for both children and adults. Make sure to attend the Lego Convention. Pretty darn good...

Wonderful wedding weekend. Beautiful resort, rooms very nice. While I wasn't happy about the 2 night minimum stay, we did take full advantage of a beautiful second day at the pool. Full service pool area was very nice. Great area as well.

Stayed at the Abbey on our honeymoon in 1968. Back in the midwest and decided to revisit. Better than ever and much larger than we remembered. First class all the way. Fontana is away from the bustle of Lake Geneva town, but only 20 minutes away. Huge marina is just steps away, with boats to rent.
