Began 2014 by celebrating our friends 60th birthday at the resort on sat 11 th jan and what a treat it was!
We were staying in one of the lodges and were not disappointed with what they had to offer. Beautifully presented and perfect for a girlie celebration! The 5 star detail was apparent from when we booked in by the way Stephen from reservations had arranged for Michelle to decorate the lodge with balloons and how he facilitated our early check in so we could lunch before our spa treatments.
Lunch was relaxed and plentiful with attentive service. The spa treatments were all superb and superior to others we had jointly experienced over the years . The spa therapists were very professional and so accomodating in allowing us to have some blubbly whilst relaxing after our wonderful massages. We floated back to the lodge feeling decidedly chilled and relaxed and ready for our meal in the Catalina restaurant.
Between us as a group we have eaten in numerous establishments but all agreed that the service provided by our waitress Kerry far surpassed our experiences to date. Kerry displayed a detailed knowledge of the menu and its local ingredients and as a result we were all delighted with the choice of courses she helped us make.
We completed the evening back in the bar for a night cap and this was the only time we felt that the 5 star attention to detail shown up to then slipped slightly. The bar was very busy and the length of time we waited for our order to be taken and then for the drink to arrive was disappointing and we felt unnecessary. The ability to multi task that was so evident in the restaurant unfortunately wasn't as apparent in the bar !!
Our breakfasts the following morning were pleasurable so all in all we had a fantastic time.
Thanks to all who contributed to making the weekend a date to remember and we hope to be back soon.
