Ok, but overpriced A review of Cove Haven Resort
My boyfriend and I stayed at Caesar's Cove Haven over the weekend of Dec. 12-14, 2003. The staff at the resort was very friendly and usually very accommodating. However, both in our mid 20s, we felt like the resort was a little outdated for our tastes but OK overall. Our room, the Juliette, had all the promised amenities a heart-shaped whirlpool, round bed, and fireplace. The carpet was a little old and musty and felt a bit wet when we arrived. The room's whirlpool was great and the bed was relatively comfortable, but it wasn t the cleanest or most elegant room we ve stayed in (especially for $300 a night!!!). When we used the shower, there was a bar of used, unwrapped soap leftover from previous guests. It definitely wasn t a five-star room. We didn t do many of the planned couples activities at the resort, but stuck mostly to the 24-hour health spa and sports palace. The health spa was fun. The two whirlpools were underheated and we had to wait 30 minutes to heat up the sauna ourselves. We played ping-pong and Skee-ball in the sports arena, which were both fine. After one full day at the resort, though, we felt like we d exhausted most of our entertainment options and were ready to head home. The breakfast-in-bed service was timely, but the food, including our sausage, eggs, french toast and coffee were all lukewarm and unappetizing. The food provided (all-inclusive) in the dining hall was good, but we got a little tired of sharing all our meals with other couples. Overall, it was an OK, pretty fun weekend, but way overpriced for what we felt we got.
