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
We went in June of 2019 and they were getting ready to sell the hotel so some of the places at the hotel were closed so we didn't get to enjoy everything about this hotel but maybe when the new one opens we will go visit it>
Our family stayed here for my son's wedding. We celebrated New Year's Eve here and then the wedding was the next day. The staff was great. We didn't try any of the pool area because it was January. Our rooms were great and they were all suites.
Our first impression of this hotel was that it looks really nice at first glance but that the owners and employees seem to have stopped caring about it. The rooms are all huge (living room and separate bedroom, giant bathroom) and appear to have been recently renovated, but there are lots of maintenance and service issues - toilets that run or make odd noises, doors that stick, slow running elevators with improperly working door sensors, mosquito and spider infestations on the balconies in the rooms and on the terrace of the bar, no water in any of the water dispensers in the gym, the buffet running out of water and coffee at breakfast, etc. Plus, many of the onsite restaurants, as well as the gift shop, are closed. Lastly, we returned to our room at 11 pm after being at a wedding all day to find hundreds of mosquitos inside. No idea how they got into our room since we had never opened the balcony door. We're not sure if housekeeping opened it for some reason (not sure why they would since you could see the bugs swarming outside) or if the bugs just found a way inside, but either way, changing rooms at midnight was not fun - although I do appreciate that the front desk was able to find us another room at the last minute, thank goodness! All of these issues that we exeprienced made sense once my friend told me that she'd heard this hotel is being closed down in a month and will be completely gutted to make way for a brand new hotel. Clearly, they've stopped putting any money into it since it is closing so soon. It will be interesting to see what happens with this hotel once it is rennovated. It does have quite a bit going for it in theory: the views from the lake view rooms are fantastic, the lakeside restaurant is quite elegant on the inside and the food was great, and the water park is really nice. It just needs someone to fix it up and care.
