We've been going here for several years and the remodel is complete ! Very nice update and I love the modern contemporary look! The pool area is very inviting with red loungers all around and a nice relaxing setting. The lobby is my favorite part of the hotel - very upbeat and cool. Tons of places to sit with coffee in the morning or drinks and food the rest of the day. The iBar has the best food in all of the hotel. Seriously! Ironwood restaurant very nice ( and very expensive too). The rooms are nicely furnished with comfy beds. Lamps that dim, an iHome for your iPhone to charge and play music - little touches like that.
I like the poolside rooms - and the walkout from the first floor is great if you like to go to and from the pool straight from your room. The hotel could use some attention to the level of service and staff attitude and attentiveness. For an $11 margarita poolside I'd like to have them be more attentive to come over and get your order, and bring to you quickly rather than you wait to see someone and they never come so you go to the bar yourself. That was not an isolated case. Seems like it's a staff attitude thing. At the breakfast cafe, for a $22 breakfast buffet plus tip and tax it should be more elaborate and nice with some unique items and a large table of fruits and things. I'm just commenting that the prices are high. Usually that's fine if you get something special for it - including service. For the dining I think the best service in terms of quality is at the iBar. I suppose you could say the fact that it was Memorial Day weekend and there was a big junior golf tournament plus several weddings it taxed everyone. But that's when there should be extra staff and supervisors going around checking. Many staff were attentive. But about half had a little attitude or were just not there when needed. Overall I'd recommend! Great golf destination.
