Nice facility...clean rooms and helpful staff. The golf/pro shop employees, courses and practice facilities were great! If you are a pool person, best to pay a small fee for the "Waters of the World" pools that are part of the spa than the "main pool" at the hotel...it is quiet and has more attentive & personal service...and you can use the spa steam/sauna/shower facility, too. The spa services were top-notch, I had a massage and facial - and even got a haircut...talented, experienced and professional staff at the spa. The lobby bar is a great place to people watch and grab a bite to eat. The Ironwood Restaurant was excellent. The difference at this hotel vs. others is the friendly staff! From eager-to-please housekeeping to Roosevelt (the smiling pool attendant), from the server that presented our bread basket in Ironwood with more flare than I've ever seen - to the helpful conceirge - the people definitely made the difference here! We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the main pool which was peaceful and private. Seems like there are a lot of conferences/meetings going on at the hotel...but as non-business travelers to this destination...we never felt crowded out by the attendees - on the contrary, we felt like we had the entire facility to ourselves! It's definitely not of the level of a Ritz or Four Seasons, even with the recent renovation...but for the location, golf courses, spa facility, proximity to West Palm Beach...it was a great value.
