My husband and I went here for what we thought was going to be a nice relaxing weekend before our twin babies are born in a few months. Not sure if it was just the time of year but with the exception of our time in the spa, this trip was definitely not conducive to relaxing. To start, our room was 4 doors down from the pool so we had a nice 8 am wake-up call every morning as all of the young children went running (and screaming) down the hall. That pretty much lasted until about 9:30-10:00 every night. Our bathroom door was broken and needed to be physically lifted up to open and close. After a few requests from the front desk, they finally sent someone to fix it. All of the restaurants were booked, which is fine, but they opened a buffet to accomodate the people who couldn't get in. The lack of assortment and quality of the food was so bad that my husband and I ended up spending $33/person to eat a plate of french fries. Only to walk over the the restaurants shortly after and see a slew of open tables. Evidently a lot of people don't show up for their reservations. On the positive though, the spa and spa staff was amazing. The spa facilities were very nice and offered a relaxing and quiet retreat. In addition, the crystal tavern was very good the one night we were able to get reservations. Funny thing was we felt lucky to get them and there were numerous open tables the entire time we were in there. Would definitely consider coming back once we have a family, but definitely do NOT recommend for a couples weekend away.
