    some issues to consider before booking re service

    I had several issues with this stay so not sure worth the over $500 paid for the suite. First, I wanted to add a 2nd night - I could have booked it through hotels.com but had them call the property - the hotel pulled it from the hotels.com site so I had to book it by contacting them directly, thereby losing my credit for the night. In addition, had the following issues - 1. first day, no hot water for showers (which they fixed), 2. the outdoor spa pool pictured also was not hot...barely lukewarm and therefore not pleasant 3. the sauna/steamroom was co-ed mandatory naked and the towels are the size of handtowels not big enough to wrap around any part of you and not so comfortable at 60yo and chubby walking around naked and robe was too small for my husband 3. the restaurant (nor bar) could not take us the 2nd night for dinner as they had a pharmaceutical group there which added about 25 people and the kitchen couldn't handle it even though there were tables available. 4. We had massages booked the day we were checking in and went to use the spa ahead - they gave us one locker to use in the men's locker room, so I had to change, come out and meet my husband to give him my clothes/shoes and again later and then carrying pile of my stuff thru hotel. 5. When trying to check in for the massage, no desk nor person available to check in...the door was locked as the person who checks in also stocks spa and gives massages 6. many windows look right into adjacent houses/hotels.

    LOVE THIS PLACE

    I would visit here again in a heartbeat. The room was gigantic and offered so much comfort and entertainment. The view from the deck / spa was fantastic, and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!!
