With children you never have enough time together, but it isn't until you stay at a place like this that you realize it. I love coming here because I feel like I finally have my wife all to myself like I did when we were dating.
This was our third visit to Sybaris and by far the best. Our first visit was at the Paradise suite, which was amazing. Like all the other reviews everything was very clean, the pool water was warm and so was the room tempature. We both could not get over how big the cabins are. When you first pull up you are thinking that the cabins don't look that big, how can they fit a pool in them? Then you open the door and its a total WOW factor.
Our second visit was to a Whirlpool suite, which I don't recommend if you have ever been in a pool suite. All of the other rooms were booked so we decided to give it a try. It was nice but after knowing the luxury and fun of the pool suites it just didn't measure up. My advice is to save a little more money up and go for the better suites, or try this type of room first.
On our last visit we went all out. Since we were both dissapointed in the whirlpool suite we opted for the Chalet suite with the slide this time. I have to say that I was overwhelmed with the pool suites but this one completely blew us away. It started when we opened the garage door and drove my truck in. (By the way, they will hold a full size Chevy Silverado.) The look on my wife's face was priceless when she first walked ito the pool area and I could tell we were going to have a lot of fun. It turned into a race to see who could get their clothes off the fastest and down the slide. And then their was unloading the truck, no big deal anymore, we both walked into the private garage in our nature bathing suits and unloaded. As someone else mentioned that is the big pain with the cabins, if you forget some thing in your vechile you have to get dressed again and go outside to the real world, not anymore. You can deffinetly tell the size difference between the pool and the room in these suites compared to the others, it is huge. The same goes for the hot tub in the bedroom, it has to be close to a 6 person hot tub. The only thing I liked better about the other pool suite is that the steam room had showers in them where the Chalet suite only has steam and no running water.
Will we go back, deffintely! But we will save the chalet suite for special occasions due to the fact that they never offfer discounts on this room type. When we do the Chalet suite this time we will probably go to Frankfort so we can have the showers in the steam room as well.
The best advice I could give would be to look for the special they offer where you buy a $300.00 gift certificate and they give you 2 robes for free. We always bring our own robes which are so soft compared to the ones at the suite which are scrathy feeling due to the heavy cleaning they do to them. Also, check the website for deals, they usaully give really good rates during the week. My wife would also suggest some Absolut Pear with sprite or 7up, seems to help the tropical feeling.
