I visited Stobo with a few friends for a relaxing break. It was one of the best spa's I have even been to. The room was clean and spacious (we were 3). I booked in for 2 treatments, the Pythomer facial (1h40min) was total luxury. I did think I had booked in for something else and was slightly shocked when I found out the real price of this treatment, (even though it was worth what they were asking for it), but I explained my concern to the staff and they were so helpful and understanding they amended my bill. I also had a mother to be back massage the next day and that too was lovely. The girls that do the treatments are an absolute credit to Stobo!
Meals were good, and the portion sizes just right. The only small gripe I have was on the last day I asked one of the young waiter's if there were tomatoes in one of the sauces, he looked at me very blankly and said: 'I don't know, don't get it if you think you're not going to eat it'. I would have expected him to go find out from the chef. As I said a small issue but waiting staff should know these things. The ladies at the reception are also lovely and they really make you feel at home, very polite, friendly with smiles on their faces.
The pool is lovely and relaxing, I didn't go in the steam rooms or saunas because I'm expecting but my friends loved them too.
All in all a wonderful stay, I wish I could walk around work with my house-coat on!!
