I've been to many weight reducing/ health spas and this was my least favorite. My accomodations were horrible the first week of a two week stay and no adjustment was made to the bill - a dungeon of a room: no air conditioning, no phone in my room and in the basement with a view of the driveway above my head. The walk to the main facilities at night was horrendous - no lighting and lots of wild life - the wild life was the best part of the trip - but preferably in daylight! The meals were too caloric for some of us who did not have that much weight to lose. The philosophy is good for those who have never been off their butts and have eating concerns - higher caloric meals (average 1600 to 1800 a day) are OK for those with many pounds to lose. The workouts really did not start until the second week - after all the lectures the first week. I think this is too expensive not to jump start the first week. I was anticipating two weeks at a health spa that motivated me to start a new life style, but after two weeks of working REALLY hard I had lost nothing! Worst success story of my life. I've been more successful 4 days at other places. I think the meals were too caloric for me. But I made lots of new friends that I keep in touch with. The hikes were beautiful and the staff was great! The surrounding area was beautiful!
