I approached my mom's 75th birthday celebration at Minerals with trepidation, having read the negative reviews on TripAdvisor. I could not have been more suprised! The place is beautiful, clean, well-run, and a great deal of fun. Twenty members of our family, ranging from age 75 (the Birthday Girl) to 13 stayed two nights and everyone was pleased. The service was excellent...props to John for the Friday cocktail hour, and Saad and Katie for the Saturday Dinner. Swimming, golf, touring, everyone had something to do. The food was excellent, even out at the Tiki Bar. The staff went out of their way to accomodate us, even when we requested odd items (like an extension cord).
The hotel is also a swim/sports club, so you get a lot of the NJ locals on the weekend. Never saw so many tattoos in my life, but it was entertaining. By the end of the day the pools got a bit cloudy from all the activity. A few umbrellas would have been welcome, it was hard to find shade. Towels are skimpy, the locals knew to bring their own. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, with the nice addition of a ceiling fan; the teenagers got their own suites, which were very nice, incuded an efficiency kitchen, and remote control fireplace! So don't listen to the negative reviews!
