Stayed June 16 - 18th My husband and I met another couple at the Hyatt for a long weekend. The girls spa'd and the guys golf'd. We booked the golf package with 1 round of golf per day. Water view room around $300. The rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable, but I wouldn't recommend you spend the extra money for a water view room. The grounds are beautiful so the ground views are just as nice as a water view. The deck on the room is just a small walk-out, but you can't sit and relax. If you like sitting out at night - reserve a ground level room with patio - table and chairs provided.
Food is okay and is resort priced. No upscale resturants in the area, but nice mom and pop places and a few chain's. If you want to save a few bucks on food - leave the resort. If you forget to pack anything - Wal Mart directly across the street from the entrance to the resort. Recommend you buy water at Wal Mart. Each room has a refrigerator - comes in handy for cold water at the pool or at the golf course.
Golf - husband said the course was very nice, but tight. And the club seemed to overbook. Because this is a corporate resort - lots of slow play. They accommodate late golfers and it just slowed the course. 1 round took 6 hours on Friday and Saturday.
Exercise - gym is okay. Recommend you get up early to do the 2.6 mile walking trail through the resort. Good workout and enjoyable.
Spa - adequate, but nothing spectacular. Towels not soft and small (and I'm not big), but tall - bring your swimsuit for the sauna. Steam room wasn't working during my visit.
Hot Stone - very good if you can handle the heat, but if you don't think you would like hot stone - please do not spend the money on this massage. You will be disappointed. It is also not a very relaxful massage - recommend a swedish.
For DC metro drivers. Go early on Friday (before 12:00) and leave early on Sunday (before 11:00). You shouldn't hit traffic. Be sure to stop at the local area farmer's markets for fresh fruit and veggies on your way home.
Pool area - stay at the infinity edge pool if your an adult with no kids. If you have kids, please do not bring them to the infinity pool. There are three pools and two are for over active children. The resort tries to keep the infinity pool for adults. You will have a headache in 3-5 mins if you stay by the indoor pool. Loud doesn't even begin to describe the noise level of this pool.
Service - spotty. The lobby lounge - service was hit and miss. Mostly miss. Would take 15 mins to get service and then once you get service they never come back. We were getting our own drinks more often then our waitress. They seem to have lots of breaks as well. Every time we were in the lounge our waitress had to take a break. It was one of the most unusual things we've experienced - breaks during high peak hours (4:00 - 7:00).
Drinks expensive - more so than usual. Rasberry cosmopolitian was $10.50. We brought wine and beer and stored in soft sided coolers and the refrigerator in the room. If you don't like large bar tabs - use that as an option.
Bed - oddly enough the sheets never stayed tucked. You move once and the sheets come untucked and then your on the mattress within 2 hours of falling asleep. They need to find correct sheets that stay tucked. Other than that - bed was comfortable.
Housekeeping - Not good. We left the room at 9:00 and when I came back at 3:30 they had just gotten to our room. I waited outside for 15 mins. When they finished and I entered the room we had no wash cloths, no hand towels, two bath towels, and our tolietries were not replinished (and they were clearly close to being empty).
All in all - this isn't a bad place to go for a weekend. With golf x 2 days and spa x 1 day, all our meals at the resort, and bar tab for 2 evenings - cost was $1400 for 2 nights and 3 days. Now that sounds like a lot, but for a resort with a view close to DC, not bad at all. Remember our room was water view, so go cheaper on the room, eat off-site, bring your own alcohol, and this becomes a very good value.
