This is a wonderful place. It's clean, amidst nature and Algonquin Park, has very friendly and helpful staff. We have come several times to stay here. There are a variety of types of rooms. I assume those who leave nasty reviews are the ones who pay for the cheapest rooms. We always stay in the Spa Villas. They are separate...

I think, based on some of the reviews, it probably depends on what type of room you rent at the resort that could make the difference as to whether you have a "5 star" experience. To be clear, my husband and I stayed in one of the chateaus. The chateau is spacious, with a huge bathroom with sauna and steam...

Let me start by saying if this resort was truthful in saying it was a 2 or 3 star resort, this review would be completely different and I would say something like: Quaint spacious rooms overlooking the water. Needs some updating but is nice to spend time on your patio, in the Jacuzzi and driving into Algonquin park. Instead, because...

Cancelled our New York City trip and decided to spend our 17th Anniversary In Algonquin Park to get away from our busy schedules. At the Couples Resort we found fresh air, gentle snowfall, hiking trails but best of all, a beautiful villa with hot tub and roaring fire and Jacuzzi in our private space. The food was five courses of...

Enjoyed our time at the resort. Didn't know what to expect, from the dining_Pleasant staff and good humoured. The cleaning staff always friendly. You have a great crew. Will definitely want to come back again but more in the summer time. Wasn't expecting snow for 1st week of May. Still was a great weekend.

One of the most loveliest resorts in northern Ontario near Algonquin Park. We have gone there three years in a row now in December. Close enough to Algonquin Park to go hiking; or just go snowshoeing and skating at the resort. It is the place my husband proposed! Lovely dining room with beautiful atmosphere and wonderful food. Lovely individual rooms...

We have enjoyed our visits to Couples Resort so much,we decided there was no other place we'd rather celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We got the exact spa villa we requested (Gaea). The villas are private and spacious with stone fireplaces to the vaulted ceilings, a king bed(SO comfy),a sitting area, a 2 person jacuzzi plus a private outdoor hot...

I'll start with the few minor details that I think could use improvement... when we arrived, our window crank was broken. Luckily my spouse fixed it for the hotel. Hooks for your robes in the room to dry would be handy! Our patio where the hot tub was (junior suite) was covered in wet soggy leaves. A simple sweep with...
