I have stayed here twice during work trips. The first time I mistakingly booked the family hotel on the south side. It was my own personal hell that I would liken to the cheap roadside hotels my family would stay in during long roadtrips.
Not because of all the families necessarily but also because there were patrons tracking inches of mud through the hotel and the entire building smelled like a gym locker room/pool with too much chlorine.
Fast forward to 6 weeks later I booked the spa side on the North of the building based on a colleagues feedback. Totally different experience, beautiful, clean, quiet rooms for a great price. It even inspired me to look into a relaxing weekend break with my wife.
Bottom line: the duality of this location is extraordinary but the payoff is great if you choose correctly.
Editors Note on Rating: This is not an average. I would give the family side a 1 star but the Spa side gets 4.
