+1

Years ago we used to go to their resorts all the time especially when they had the family resort too. Although they are cheesy it was definitely worth the SPG points and you got much more than just a hotel with food, activities, entertainment.....

2 summers ago we went to Pocono palace and had a horrible experience. When we were checking in the Manager comes to the front and starts warning us that if we have a baby with us they will kick us out as if we had one in our trunk!!! Its possible they had such an experience with other frum people unfortunately, but that was no excuse for accusing us and I gave her a piece of my mind! The champagne tower was extremely outdated and run down and the air conditioner barely worked. Of course we filed a complaint with SPG and got our points back.

sadly its true  frum couples do bring there kids there and its against  the rules and its dangerous because of the open pool in the room etc

Now i know why spg is not part of them anymore we complain and we lose out shame on us! same reason Israel has only 3 property's left!!

I was there about 2 months ago, for a Bar Mitzvah.

The cabins are very nice.
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

A few friends of mine were there for Shabbos  a few weeks ago . They were very happy with the food ( Greenwald Caterers )and said the accommodations were very decent

PS : They are people who know what good hotels/service are all about

I remember from years ago there were two Bowling alleys that were open 24 hours. Are they still open? Anyone know the names?
