JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa

Reviewed 10 November 2013

Just spent last weekend at this resort and was extremely pleased with the service. All the staff were very helpful answering ALL of my friend and I's questions, and believe me we asked a lot. During our stay the hotel was apparently at 10% capacity but everything was still fully open, both restaurants, bars and the spa. We enjoyed breakfast, dinner, a bonfire and the outdoor hot tub.
Breakfast was perfectly cooked and the portions were huge. We had dinner at Teca and were the only people during the time we were seated. We very being served by a very please and friendly server and everything was 5 star! I had the Bison and i highly recommend it as it was cooked perfectly. The portions were so large that we ate the rest for breakfast!
We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub which was clean and was the perfect temperature for a very cold night.
To end the night the staff set up a bonfire for us and we were provided with a s'mores kit ($10.00) which was fully worth it! It was great fun and a great end to the evening.
Rooms were very cozy and rustic and the view of the lake was incredible. The fire place makes it worth while.
Great added bonus is the wildlife on property, there was a family of deer grazing in the parking lot and some fox sightings as well.

I highly recommend!

What a spectacular weekend 8 of us had at this resort. The most glorious winter weekend with so much to do. From snow shoeing (provided by the resort) skating, outdoor pool and hot tub, dog sleds, wine tasting, hikes...well we couldn't have asked for more. We stayed in one of the two bedroom condos which believe it or not was ample room for us. The rooms were wonderful, clean well stocked. The staff was more than terrific helping us out anyway they possibly could. Hopefully we will be back again soon.

excellent service and ambiance in this hotel...food is great. fantastic lounge areas where you can sit and read or compute...with a drink or coffee (see comment on coffee) highly recommended...but a great breakfast could be made better if only the coffee was good.

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous anniversary weekend. As a surprise my husband booked a get away package with Jaunt. I must admit, after reading some negative reviews on Tripadvisor I was a little worried. I honestly don't know what people were complaining about! We found the service excellent, the staff friendly and very accommodating. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. At check in we were upgraded to a beautiful one bedroom suite on the 3rd floor with an outstanding view of lake Rousseau. The kitchen, living room, bath room and bed room were very clean. I loved the upscale country decor.

We went for a walk and returned to find a bottle of wine, cheese, crackers and fruit set out on the kitchen counter. We sat in our quaint little living room in front of the fire enjoying our wine. Wishing it would have been warm enough to enjoy outside on our balcony.

The first night we ate at Teca. The Italian flat breads, salad and dessert were all very tasty. Meghan was wonderful as were "several" other servers who looked after us. Yes, several. They made our dining experience perfect. The next morning we had a delicious buffet breakfast at The Cottages. An absolute must - it will keep you full until dinner. Loved the omelet bar. Troy makes a mean omelet and serves it up with a friendly smile. You can tell he loves his job and the peeps. Everything was delicious and the view of the lake was to die for.

In the afternoon we enjoyed hot apple cider in the lobby and then took advantage of a lovely experience at the spa. Everything was perfect except, sadly the weather. But that didn't stop us from enjoying the hot tub in the rain/hail on a cool October day. We looked at it as just another spa delight- the hail/rain treatment. In the morning we took advantage of the indoor/outdoor pool before leaving. Steam was rising off the pool, the sun was shining through the trees and the Fall view of the lake was an outstanding experience. We left The Rosseau on a relaxing high. Do visit, we will be back for sure. Thank you everyone for making our anniversary unforgettable.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view, on the upper floors you won't regret it.

Located in the heart of Muskoka surrounded by gorgeous scenery, this large, luxury hotel has everything you could want. Well trained and friendly staff from the desk to servers enhance the experience. The rooms are large and have nice cottage type feel with fireplaces and nice views to the lake. Some rooms have balconies and vary from single style rooms to ones that are suites with bedrooms. Large bathrooms with separate showers have granite walls, counters and floors are classy all the way. Teco is an excellent restaurant for dinner. Superb spot for a romantic getaway.

This stunningly beautiful hotel is right next to the equally stunning Lake Rosseau and is the perfect get away from it all type of break. The facilities on offer are fantastic - not least the swimming pools one of which is partly indoors and partly outdoors. The rooms are also well presented and maintained - especially like the ones that have balconies overlooking the Lake.
The walks around the area are tranquil and lovely and there are several really pretty golf courses around eg; The Rock where the staff are so helpful and friendly in true Canadian spirit. Our second visit to this fine hotel - hope not our last !

Room Tip: If you can afford it the suites with balconies overlooking the Lake are superb

We recently stayed here for 2 nights on their "Fall Wine & Dine" package. Prior to our arrival, I was hesitant about my choice because of some of the reviews written on this site. It was our anniversary and I wanted my pick to be perfect. Well, it was most perfect in every way. The resort was lovely. The 1-bedroom suite was spacious and beautifully designed. Every staff member that we encountered was professional and courteous and most helpful. When checking in, the front desk kindly upgraded us to a room with a balcony. The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job each day. All dining staff were most kind and made our dining experience even more wonderful. The package did include dinners and breakfast. Each dinner we dined at Teca. Both evenings we chose the chef's special. Our meals were magnificient. Kudos to the chefs in that restaurant. Both mornings we enjoyed the breakfast buffet in Cottages. The staff was very kind, and the selection and quality were excellent. We travel quite extensively and when we are at a resort, I always think "would we return here?" This resort exceeded all of our expectations and would absolutely return again if they offered the same Fall package in 2014. Thank you for making our 22nd anniversary wonderful!
