This was our second stay here. The first was around 6 years ago and was in the Jungle Safari room. This time was in the Arabian Nights room. This review is limited to this trip but may make a few comparisons to previous trip.
This is a themed room hotel, so don't expect a plush downtown hotel although the rates are about the same. IMO, the difference is that when you go here, you are expecting to be in the room a lot more than you would be in a higher-end hotel as this is more of a couples destination.
The bed was very comfortable. To me, it was just the right mix of firm vs soft and allowed for a very restful sleep.
The whirlpool is close to the size of a hot tub you would typically see outdoors. Not quite as big but bigger than you typically see in a jacuzzi in a hotel room. It was big enough for two people to easily stretch out and enjoy. Very relaxing!
It is an older hotel. Personally, I had no problems with cleanliness. There was what I would call normal wear and tear in the room, but others might have issues, depends on what you are used to.
The pool? Well, it was the middle of July and the pool was not open. It was still covered. It didn't bother me but the front page of the website advertises an Olympic size outdoor pool and if it is not going to be open in the middle of the summer, then when would it be open is my question.
Service? OK, here is why I rated below average. First, the door we were told was the closest to access our room from did not let us in. I'm not sure if the keycard thing wasn't working or what, but we had unloaded all of out luggage to try and make one trip and ended up having to reload the car and find a different entrance. We did, but we wish we would have known. Maybe I wasn't clear on where to go in either, who knows? We were able to get out using that door though. Second, my guess is that the fantasuites rooms, which are all down one hallway of a different building from the lobby are the main draw. Well, the ice machine in this area was turned off with a sign directing you to go to the one in the main lobby, which is a different building. To me, you should have conveniences available for the area of the main draw for your hotel. That was probably my biggest issue.
Overall, it was a fun experience for the hot tub, the bed, and the themed room, it all plays out. My wife and I both agreed that it was a lot different from what we remember though. Maybe we are just older now and have stayed in more plush rooms since then. I'm not sure. To us, there was enough good to overcome the inconveniences. If you want a room experience that you are unlikely to find most other places combined with a great hot tub and comfortable bed all in the "setting" of your choice, then this would be a good choice.
