i booked this as a weekend spa treat for myself and my girlfriend. Therefore I will address the spa issues firstly. Too many facilities were out of action. Neither of the two indoor plunge pools were in service. One of the steam rooms was out of service. Of the remaining steam / sauna rooms, none of them appeared to have... More

Make it three visits now to this excellent hotel and again we have not been disappointed. Very friendly staff, great location, two very nice golf courses (Los Flamingos and Alferini) and very comfortable rooms. Some additional information on top of our recent reviews: this time the beach club was still open. As we like the pool area at the hotel... More

We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary, and had a very relaxing time, the staff were very polite and friendly. The Beach Club was very enjoyable and convenient with the shuttle bus.

Had a long weekend here and enjoyed the nice architecture, chilling out by the pool and the friendliness of the staff but unfortunately several things rather got on our nerves and despite being a regular visitor to the area would make me think hard about staying there again. As other reviews mention, there is no complimentary water in the room... More

Visited this hotel for the 2nd time....last time was 6 years ago. Hotel has gone downhill. Staff very very nice however hotel looking shabby and stains on carpets. The most disappointing thing was the quality of food. Golf clubhouse kitchen closed at 4pm! Ordered pasta (bolognaise & carbonara) from room service which is amongst the worst I've tasted...very disappointing.

The hotel is lovely. Spacious rooms, lovely setting and great facilities - particularly if you are a golfer. The location is quite remote so we found that a car was necessary. The breakfast and dinner menus were fine; but a little samey if you are considering staying more than a few days. The hotel website boasts that "High Speed Internet... More
