  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

For a luxury property that this place claims to be, i expected better. Upon checkin, we arrived to our room and saw a placard that our room had been "santized and spotlessless". Except, it was filthy. The floors were COVERED in debris and human hairs that werent ours. It was like they completely forgot to vacuum. During covid, unacceptable. Due to reduced staffing, dirty linens and soiled plates sat in the hallways literally from sun up to sun down. It appears they make one sweep of the hall daily to pick up anything dirty. The hallway actually smelled. The staff at the pool were rude. I understand they were trying to keep the pools at capacity, but teenage staff should not be yelling at guests. Guests were allowed to leave towels on chairs all day and counted as "bodies" at the pool even if the guest had left, so we were not allowed in the pool one day, even though they were literally half empty. I had to argue with a teenager to be allowed in to get my older mother out of the pool. They allowed people to play loud music from their speakers on their balconies for hours without saying a word. Also, DONT PLAN TO SWIM in the lake. They are severly limiting beach passes and not advertising. We were there 3 days and did not get to go. We went for beach passes at 730 and were told they were gone before 630 am. We were put on a wait list and received a call at...545 that night. The local public beaches are also closed to anyone who isnt a resident.

  • Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

Lovely grounds and facilities. Nice amenities. Overall property was clean but multiple entrance areas to different buildings needed attention. Pool area was not sanitized in between guests and there was no supervision of social distancing or people hogging chairs who were not even present. Needs serious improvement as many guests were not happy. Dined in for breakfast. Dinner was another story as we were told our food would be at least an hour even though there was only about 6 different parties at the waterfront grill - we left. A different guests room was broken into in our building and the couple was upset over the resorts lack of concern. The Abbey was a sure a little different than I remembered!
