Grand Geneva Resort & Spa

Overview

Although the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is situated in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, not Lake Geneva, Switzerland, guests say the locale is quite beautiful. The resort's guest rooms feature private balconies overlooking southern Wisconsin's hilly landscape, not to mention high-tech amenities like multimedia desks and LCD flat-screen TVs. Previous visitors appreciate the Grand Geneva's wealth of on-site activities, including a waterpark for the kiddos and skiing access for the whole family. If you don't have little ones in tow, fill your days with rounds of golf at The Brute and The Highlands courses, or massage your stress away at the WELL Spa + Salon. Recent guests enjoy the Italian cuisine at Ristoranté Brissago, noting that the outside fire pits are a nice touch. However, some guests mention that dining at the resort's five restaurants can get expensive, while others warn future visitors of the $15 per night resort fee that's tacked on to your bill.
