I booked the spa for my bridal party the day before my wedding and it was anything but relaxing. Despite the appointment being booked for weeks, there was absolutely nothing that the staff did to make it feel like a special occasion. On arrival we were simply each whisked away into separate, dark, sterile rooms (NO-ONE even showed us the surrounding areas, we didn't even see a pool). As we were all getting manis and pedis I was expecting something a bit more sociable whereby myself and my bridesmaids could all chat and enjoy the experience together before the big day. The manis and pedis were THE worst I've ever had (and I've been to a lot of spas all over the world) It was so bad that we all had to drop into Clicks straight after and buy nail polish remover and nail polish to redo them (bare in mind this is the night before my wedding!) I could go and on about how the manager and staff just contributed to one stress after another for me but I don't want to waste any more energy on this place. Simply put, it's completely over-priced (and that's for UK prices even), the manager is totally incapable, the staff are not trained properly, the facilities are falsely advertised on the website and overall it was an incredibly disappointing experience.
