3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Must have been beautiful in its hay day. Kinda sad they charge $8 for a log in a fireplace that comes empty. Kinda happy they didn't charge for water to be poured into our pool. They even charge for soap for the bubble bath!? Great idea, but VERY POORLY managed!

After reading all the bad reviews on other travel sites I was a little hesitant to go, but you shouldn't believe everything you read! Cove haven was amazing it was my first time there and my boyfriend and I had a great time, our room was amazing, their activities were amazing, all the staff were really friendly and enjoyable, the food was great, and the drinks were too! there were so many nice couples who would stop and talk to us, the place promotes love so that's exactly what you'll get from the staff to the food everything is surrounded by love! I can't wait to return!

Carpet is gross food is horrible specially dinnesrs at the colosseum you can tel the ingredients are not the best quality or fresh and is pop all over the place from geese , pool were cold . I had a good hamburger at the bar bu the pool . Though.

The concept of Cove Haven is nice. The amenities are nice, however, the hotel itself is extremely outdated & unclean. I stayed in the Cove Fantasy room, which was very spacious, but I could not get past the dust. Dust everywhere throughout the room. All over the lamp & lamp shades, mirrors & all around the bed. I'm surprised I did not have an allergy attack. Very disappointing for the price. I have stayed at a Comfort in & the room was cleaner than this one. They also do not have a late check. I'm not sure if I would return any time soon.

Everything should be updated. Reserve a table for two people asap if you do not want to be sited with other people for dinner.

The pictures online doesn't give Cove Haven Resort justice. The suite I stayed in with my loved one was huge. The bathroom alone was a great size for couples. I would definitely recommend it to other love birds out there :)

We had a very good time. We loved our hostess Stephanie. The meals were very good and we had a great time using the sports facilities and the entertainment provided.

It's time for renovation already. It's time for renovation already.

Many activities on site. Romantic setting. Nice place to get away with your loved one.

Carpet/paint outdated and visibly old, mirrors throughout were not cleaned, pool and hot tub not very clean either, room was freezing cold upon arriving, had to actually PAY for fire logs for the fireplace seperately..for a resort selling "ROMANCE" not a wine glass or candle to be found!?? And to top it all off, not even a "how was your stay?" Upon checking out.. Horrible customer service, very horrible overall experience for the outrageous price we paid.

The hotel was ok but it was not how expect maybe because of the weather conditions and the season.

Rooms were very worn, especially mattresses. Almost scary. Exterior has not kept up. Major rust, erosion of landscaping materials and general disrepair.

You feel like you are in a room where XXX movie video taping just took place. Too much to say, bottom line, nothing to be excited about.

Cove Haven is the perfect romantic getaway location. This resort is not 'perfect' and you will find flaws if you simply look for them. But the relaxation and the calming peaceful atmosphere will quickly erase all reservations you may have about this resort. This was our fourth stay at these Poconos resorts and can honestly say "we will be back!". The type of room we chose this time was a cove fantasy room. Pool, sauna, hot tub and fireplace all included in your spacy suite. Everything was in working order. A few tiles were missing from our fireplace and a few mirrors were slightly damaged but overall good condition for the room. Now for the resort amenities... they offer a little bit of everything. It's all up to you! They have sports of all kinds available to play, ie tennis, archery, basketball, racquet ball, skating, pool table, arcade games. Then daily, resort staff come up with creative daily events and couples contests ie horse carriage rides, ice sculpting, board games, bingo, etc. The staff encourages you to mingle with other couples but also encourages quality couple time! Every night, they have some type of nightly entertainment. We always try to attend, out of respect. Some visits you may be one of only a handful of couples on the entire resorts. So my 'complaints'... they stopped breakfast in bed!!!! You can't even special request breakfast in bed. Very disappointing to find out on our honeymoon of all visits. The food is always very good. All inclusive includes breakfast and dinner. As being a couple who hates early mornings, we cherished that little feature! No its not worth it to pay the extra $$ for the all inclusive...just for dinner. Secondly, stop changing your promotions. It was so exciting to get our "forever lover" paperwork and so deflating to attempt to get a room and being told in the few months, they again changed their rules and nothing applies to us. :/ Why promise perks and then not honor them. It was almost a breaking point on our decision to return...but our recent stay has changed our minds. The rooms are worth the hassle. The level of relaxation we experience at this resort will be why we continue to tell all of our friends...Gooooooo! Enjoy your partner. Cherish your relationships and each other. These Poconos resorts are the perfect place. Ohhh... and if it snows, stay another night! The roads off resort are treacherous and very dangerous! If we could've extended our stay, we certainly would have!!!!

Hotel is a little corny but has a lot to offer and we had a blast with so much to do. Also nice that it was inclusive.

We went on a couple's getaway with another couple. We had the harbour tower room and they had the juliette. The previous reviews said that if you embrace the cheesiness, you'll be okay. We embraced the 70s vibe, cheesy decor and in fact, we had a great time. It was a great place to rekindle the spark with lots to do - it is what you make of it. The food was decent, but abundant - we weren't hungry for a while after eating. I would suggest buying snacks to keep in your room fridge in case you wake in the middle of the night. Everyone was very nice, including other travelling couples. Our room was clean and we never had an issue with odors, mold or mildew. The room we were in had an added bonus, a porch off the bedroom. That was a plus since it gave us another living area to relax in as we watched the lake glimmer at sunset.
