Simply the BEST! From day one until the wedding day...the wedding planning team was with us EVERY step of the way. We always had a person to contact. when the wedding planner left for the day, we were introduced to the banquet manager and the bar manager so we had a face and a name if we needed anything. TOP NOTCH SERVICE! Our guests were very impressed and commented about how great the service was--from the rooms to the restaurants to the reception. Very detail oriented! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Abbey Resort and their wedding planning team!!

We blocked off this hotel for my wedding the weekend of Oct 7. This place is beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. Everyone enjoyed the stay. The 240 bar was a blast! We were there Friday and Saturday. It was a little slow getting drinks on Friday. I think they were not expecting such a big crowd; we had about 40 people there. We had dinner at The Waterfront. Most of my family and guests showed up here for dinner. We kept adding more tables and soon we almost had the entire room. They were very accommodating and allowed us to sit together. This was super nice of them. Having worked in the restaurant industry, I know what a pain we had to have been. The food was excellent. We had booked the patio for our wedding rehearsal and it rained! I contacted the wedding sales manager a week before and she reserved an indoor spot for me, I just needed to confirm which one I was going to use 3 hours before. We ended up inside, which was fine. The room was nice and they were very accommodating. The only downside is that the place is a maze. It can be difficult to get from one building to the other, as they are not in numerical order. They also did not put all of my block in the same building. We had to move around from building 6 and 7, which was annoying at times as they are not connected. Other than that, everything was beautiful and perfect for us.
