Change reservations for Mexico or Florida. Same price and worth the travel A review of Cove of Lake Geneva

For the same price, a more professional, friendlier staff, and an all over more relaxing, memorable vacation, change your reservations from this dated motel to a vacation in, for example, Riveria Maya, Mexico (we reccomend the Iberostar: Paradiso Lindo), or the Boca Raton Resort and Club in Boca Raton, Florida. We spent $240 a night for our suite that we had to upgrade from our original reservation because the cheaper rooms actually have beds along the walls outlining the interior hallways of this place. You don't miss a sound in this place, so don't expect rest here. Aside from the $240 a night, add another $100, at least, each day/night for meals. There are plenty of restaurants around town, and one in this place. Drinks at this place were overpriced ($8.00 for a Pina Collada in a plastic cup), and even though they were purchased at the pool bar or through the server circling the pool area, drinks were not allowed near the pool. I actually was scolded by the lifeguard, whom could not have been older than 12 years of age, to place my drink away from the pool. After a running total for three nights, well near four days, we spent approximately $1,200 for two people. We spent the same amount for the same number of days/nights, including the cost of airfare and a rent-a-car, when we stayed at the beautiful Boca Raton Resort and Club less than a month ago. There, we also received a complimentary newspaper each morning, a complimentary turndown of the beds with mints atop of our pillows each night, and a clean, refreshing pool to swim in during this sweltering heat. If you look online, Mexico offers deals through Apple Vacations, for example, that would cost you the same amount of money for the same number of days that you would spend at this place, and they include airfare and meals (all inclusive). If you want to spend more for less, this dated motel is for you. If you want a vacation worth your money, keep looking...
