For several years I have enjoyed coming up here for day-trips, to enjoy the spa services and rent the mineral springs tubs for an hour. The grounds are absolutely lovely and tranquil. I love relaxing in the outdoor tubs, which have ample privacy from other people on the walkway, yet the back of the gazebo is open to enjoy the lush greenery, trees and wildlife that grace the hillside. It is magical outside. In the day time, there is a meditative labyrinth made of stones you can walk through, and there are hiking trails that lead over the hillside to the beach, as well as a terrific bike path, all right from the resort.
I have stayed at the resort's inn a few times in a standard room, which comes with its own private mineral springs tub in an enclosed private porch or balcony. However, the rooms are in need of upgrade, as they are a bit old, dated, and basic. For the money, I would prefer a bit more comfort, aesthetic, and luxurious elements...just a few. Maybe the other rooms have been remodeled? I don't know. But it is still a very nice relaxing stay nonetheless. A favorite retreat.
