We stayed here for one night as part of a day trip. We didn't book any spa treatments, as we weren't going to be there for very long. We stayed in a plaza suite with 'private' Kiva pool. What we didn't realise before going was that the private pool is shared by many, many suites so that at times it felt quite crowded. Check in was ok, not conspicuously friendly. We got into our suite (apparently a room with a fridge and a microwave is a suite), and found the keys only fit one door. So we trekked back across the gravel to reception, who explained that the second door - the one that opened on to the garden area with the private pool - could only be locked from the inside. Which they could have told us when they gave us the keys. So we either had to trust all our fellow guests, or go out into the car park in our robes - rather flimsy cotton, not at all luxurious - and walk round the building to get into the garden. Wifi in the lobby only, and the toilet paper was the sort of quality you would expect in a budget motel. Having said that, the kiva pool was beautiful, and the restaurant was pricey but very good quality. I think this is a potentially first rate place, let down by a lack of attention to detail. At these prices, I think we had a right to expect better.
