My friend and I were not staying at the resort. We were in a private home and just visiting the spa. What a great experience. First class all the way. We never felt rushed and everyone was so nice. After our services, we went outside to the mineral pools for the afternoon and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. What a great relaxing day.

Nice place overall for the convention I attended. Golf courses of course are excellent. Room and food okay, nothing to rave about. The issue I had was that even the front desk is not aware of new charges they are imposing on their guests...charges you are not advised of when you check in. Sends a very bad message as to who is in charge.

I wasn't staying at the resort, just visiting. On a Thursday, we went to the iBar and it was a pretty hoppin' place around 10:30pm. I had two Mojitos and they were great! Also tried the quesadilla...it was good but over priced. My mom ordered the chili which looked fantastic. Earlier they had great happy hour prices and specials..too bad we missed those due to flight delays :( It was a fun bar, some people were really dressed up and others were very casual. Anything goes. On Sunday we checked out the pool area. What a lovely pool with nice padded lounge chairs. The pool grill didn't open until 11:30 but they were nice enough to make us daiquiri's anyways. We had lunch there later and it was good too.

Great place to have a multiday conference. Accommodation and services are excellent. Great courses as well as activities for spouses and children. A vacation spot to combine with a conference and have something for everyone.

This hotel was very high class and since I booked through Expidia they charged me 25.00 per night for what the called a hotel fee charge, that includes the coffee in your room,2 complimentary drinks from the bar, parking(had no choice to park the hotel is 10 min. Drive from the main road)' use of the facilities,. We checked in at 11 pm and checked out at 8am. We were told that if we stay 2 nights the service fee would be waived.
Very nice place for people with very deep pockets.

Great spa for spoiling oneself. But the rooms need a facelift. Also the rooms need soundproofing. I thought my room was under a disco, but then the next morning realized it was only another guestroom above me. In the hallway I heard several peoples private phone conversations from their rooms. I was walking down the hall and could clearly hear them talking on the phone. Not the place place for discretion.
The staff however was superb.
