Located 50 miles outside Houston on the 22,000-acre Lake Conroe, La Torretta offers easy access to a myriad of outdoor activities. Families splash away in the Aqua Park, complete with a lazy river and pool playground, while adults can hit the links at the 18-hole lakefront golf course. For hands-off fun, pay a visit to the 17,000-square-foot spa, which boasts decadent treatments like a therapeutic bath filled with 800 pounds of Epsom salts and one of the few hammams in the Lone Star State. For a bite by the pool, CoCoCove Grill is a shaded poolside bar and grill, and and on-site Yoi Sushi is a great take on sushi if you need your tuna fix. The real star here, however, is Lakeside Restaurant & Bar, which serves up American fare (pepper encrusted New York strip, anyone?) in a fashion-forward, waterfront setting.
In the Area
Enjoy the view of 22,000-acre Lake Conroe from the upper-level infinity edge pool. Conquer the greens or just work on your swing at the semiprivate 18-hole Club at La Torretta. Retail therapy can be found in nearby outlets, including Outlets at Conroe, or go antiquing in neighboring Montgomery. Nearby Creekwood Shooting Sports is a state of the art facility offering skeet, trap, five-stand, sporting clays, and a pistol range along with great views of Sam Houston National Forest. Since 1967, the Crighton Players have been Lake Conroe’s cultural king. Make the 15-minute drive to their Owen Theatre for a dose of culture.
How to Get There
I wanted to love this place. Check in was easy and quick. Valet $18 per night or park for free what seemed like half a mile away. Ok....it is a resort, so bite the bullet and valet park. The room...gorgeous view, but the pluses end there. First, the furniture was designed for people under 5' tall apparantly. The good thing was my thighs got a good workout every time I stood up from the couch or bed. And speaking of beds....once I lowered myself to where is was (I am only 5'7" by the way), the reality of having to sleep in a bed whose mattress has seen better days with pillows (on my king sized bed) the size of the tiny throw pillows on my couch at home, set in. Grrrr....how about some tv? Nope. The picture was so fuzzy, I could barely make out the picture. So. I thought a hot shower might help drift off to sleep, but to my surprise and disgust I found long black hair stuck to the walls of the shower. I am a blond. The next morning I couldn't get out of there fast enough. I will admit to taking a few moments to take in the amazing morning view overlooking the lake...the best part of the trip....but
Never, ever again, no matter how great the view.
Our experience with this hotel was quite pleasant. We loved the atmosphere of the resort and every employee we came into contact with was friendly and eager to help us in any way. One employee stood out among the others! Chase was so kind and our entire family felt that he was super genuine and truly loved his job. I would recommend this hotel to anyone interested in a nice, replacing getaway!
The overall hotel is very nice and is a very decent price considering how nice it is. All of the employees were very nice and seem enthusiastic about working here. One, in particular, Chase was very polite and was eager to help with any questions I had. Definitely, recommend.
Stayed here twice for two local weddings and have had a great time! Alexis from the front desk even remembered us and made sure we were taken great care of us! The upstairs bar is always great to hangout at after the wedding. Will be back!
I stayed at La Torretta for a total of 10 days, while I was visiting family. When I first arrived, Chris and Chase welcomed me like we were old college friends.
Not knowing the area very well and being here for so long, I encountered a lot of employees but there were quite a few that just went above and beyond for me and I have to mention them.
Julie from guest services, always would answer my calls in the morning with a very soft and welcoming voice. When ever I needed more items for the room she would always follow up that I received the items I had requested.
Christina, Christian, Alexis, Haley, Emilie, and Paula always made great recommendations of places to eat and where to get last minute Christmas present for the family that I had forgotten. When ever I walked back into the lobby they all greeted me by name and asked how my day was. A lot of the times, I ended up getting into pretty lengthy conversations with them about my day. They always seemed to care about what I was saying. This really made me feel like I was at home and welcome.
I spent quite a bit of time in the restaurant as well eating breakfast and enjoying my vacation. Crystal, Blake, Corey, Megan, and Danielle ended up memorizing my orders and as soon as I would walk up they would have my drink ready and food order placed. They all seemed to really care about me and I was very surprised that they all remembered everything I wanted. It was almost like they had an alarm set on when they would expect me to come in.
The two front office managers, Brit and Dalton, made my stay amazing as well. I happened to run into Dalton at the local grocery store and he greeted me by last name and asked how everything was going. Even outside of the resort they still treated me like I was at the resort.
Dalton would also personally check on my stay to ensure everything was alright and if I needed anything.
On my last night, the city had to turn off the water because of an emergency for a little while. I know this is unavoidable because the city had to turn of the water but since I was unaware of this I called the front desk and said I was having some water issues. Mike from engineering came up right away and checked on my problems. He told me that he would have to go look at some things and he would be right back. About 10 minutes later he came back up and explained to me the situation to me and that the city should have the water back up and running shortly. Dalton also gave me a call and let me know the same information and if there was anything he could get me for the time being until the issue was resolved. Even though they had no control of the problem, they still made every effort to resolve the issue in a very fast and efficient manner.
The services at this property made me feel like I was at a 5 star beach resort. The rooms were all really nice, they had an amazing eco system with a lot of beautiful wild bird, fish and even a turtle hanging out around property.
I would recommend this place to anyone that is traveling up to this area. Top notch!
