Great for Kids
We loved the accomodations and the numerous activities available for children. We stayed four days and enjoyed our stay very much.
Stay in the Galleria Suites, they are large and new.
Great Staff, we would return for a longer viist.
Not the best
stayed last Feb. when storm hit - could not leave on date expected - left later - we were able to upgrade room - but room old - in need of updating - buffet style for breakfast and dinner - food was fair - I have two boys - they were not crazy about the food choices.
Food Stinks - Facilities Good
We loved this resort - perfect for kids under 10...but the food was terrible! Filet Mignon tasted like rubber, the scrambled eggs were powdered-based and smelled horribly, nothing was seasoned, and everything tasted as it if was prepared, frozen, then thawed out. Pasta sauce was drenched in oregano and most dishes are beyond bland with frozen vegetables as a side dish. Rice and pasta were sitting in water for such a long time, that everytime it was presented, it had grown to the size of a potato! No toast with breakfast - ever! And, what ever happed to bacon as part of a breakfast buffet? Very poorly selected and prepared. NOthing was fresh or desireable enough for the next day. Both the Lodge and the GAlleria restaurants are in need of a new chef and catering manager..desperately!
My husband and I stayed at the villa with 2 kids last winter. The villa was wonderful. Clean and cozzy. We loved outdoor activities and wilderness. The meal plan was fine. However, everything was over priced. We could have much more fun and a longer stay anywhere in the world for what we paid for Split Rock. It sounded like much more than it turned out to be.
AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!!!
This place is a joke.
My wife and I were 100% dissatisfied with the resort and it's amenities. Poor service, horrible food, antiquated and outdated facilities, not to mention a management staff that does not know the meaning of customer service.
If you like 1970's decor, prison food, poor service, etc., then this is your place!
Not a dump in the poconos
the place is far from being a dump in the poconos,rooms were spacy,very well decorated and very clean.whole place was clean and very pretty.food was great and a good menu.staff was wonderful.lake was just beautiful.so much to do there also.most beautiful were the people friendy deer who roam the resort grounds...i will go back often as we can.great for kids and adults
Three of my friends and myself spent May 31st - June 7th at the Westwood Villas at Split Rock Resort and loved it. We woke to the sound of nature!! There were deer in the front and the back yards. They stood and looked and you allowing time for pictures! It was almost as if they were posing!! There were chipmunks every where. It was awesome. The resort itself was great. Lots of room for all of us. They even had an adjoining room to both bedrooms that held a sauna and a hot tub! This was very nice. The villa was clean and nicely decorated. The only thing it did not have was a washer and dryer in the villa itself. I am use to staying at resorts with a washer and dryer in the room which makes things much nicer. However, they do have guest laundry facilities available to you. There were many amenities at the resort, but we were so busy sightseeing that we never used any of them. It would have been nice to be able to go to the lake, but the weather was rainy and cold. Who can predict what the weather will be like when you plan a vacation???? We had a great time and the people at the resort were very helpful whenever we had a need or a question. I would highly recommend Westwood Villas. I plan to return when I know the weather will be warmer!
Great Staff, Lousy Food
I took 4 teen girls last December for a long weekend. The suite was dark and shabby, but clean and in working order. The food was lousy and overpriced, but the staff couldn't have been nicer. The girls went to the movies, bowled, played bingo in the lobby, listened to the band, and had a wonderful time. I sat in the whirlpool and relaxed by the pool, knowing that the girls were safe and happy under the same huge roof. I would go back again but not with the meal plan.
Great Get a way
My husband & I spend weekends at the Villas at Split Rock whenever possible. We enjoy the units and the facilities. We booked a week there for Thanksgiving several years ago and the "kids" ( 15-21 yrs had a great time. We travel extensively for business reasons, but when we're ready for a weekend get away - its either Split Rock or Caesars Pocono Palace.
A Dump In the Poconos
Don't bother. The place is falling apart, the rug and bedspread had cigarette burns and the gratuity was included in the price. Never again!

... or so from the parking lot! George weighs 30 lbs. This was NOT going to work. Unless, we could park the car in the FIRE LANE which was only about 50 feet from the sign. I don't know what the Park Ranger thought of George but he let us do it. I suspect he was thinking something like "Just give the crazy people what they want and they'll leave."
Then we parked on the street downtown and scouted for lunch. ...
... enjoyed a great day together.
My boat crew was made up of a Vietnam era Marine (yellow PFD), two Army Reserve CGOs (two in the middle) and a Airman (back left behind bucket) who worked in Iraq as a Combat Controller before leaving the service. His wife (far left front) was also with us.
... to reach the New York State line. We entered New York in the Adirondack Mountains area which was just another land of beautiful mountains, streams and forests. We continued our southwest journey along a small highway until we reached I-87S north of Albany. The ol' cruise control was now set at 68 mph and we started some serious driving to our next stop in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
Interstate driving is ...
... They loved him there and he loved it too.
We are in West Stroudsburg, PA for the night before we head into CT tomorrow. We are looking forward to seeing our family and friends over the next couple of weeks. I will be taking a break from blogging. Once we head up to Winter Harbor, ME for the summer, I'll be back with an update.
We hope everyone is doing well. Love you all.

Bags are packed! Very early by our normal standards but then it is not every day that we set off to explore Argentina then set sail for the Antarctica. A rain, freezing rain, snow event has the potential to make our Tuesday departure from JFK interesting........
