I am not certain how, but this property gets better every time we return! Most every stay we have had here has been for a conference/business. This time we stayed for 1 week during the 4th of July holiday! We saw fireworks from the comfort of the air conditioned bar/lounge and enjoyed every moment. The light show against the side of the hotel exterior is awesome!
This visit, we stayed in a suite with a "peek" of a view. No matter; it was a great room with clean furnishings and everything we needed to entertain our friends and colleagues.
We also got to use some of the amenities. My husband played gold twice, and loved the course and the staff. We enjoyed the (adults only) pool for a day. We ordered lunch and drinks poolside. They could have used another staff member or two, but all in all it was a good experience.
I had a spa treatment and found the aesthetician to be pleasant and responsive to my requests. This wasn't my first visit to the spa, and it won't be my last.
The exercise facility is above average for a hotel property, and there are small group classes, as well as chances for private training.
As for the conference facilities, the rooms (except for one) were well lit, comfortable and not "freezing" like other hotel conference rooms!
And now for the staff...TOP NOTCH in every area! Front desk, housekeeping, concierge, banquets and meetings. We had a chance to interact with almost every category of staff. This must be why organizations I work with keep having conferences at this property.
We hope to return next fall, THIS time for relaxation instead of business!
