We went to the Gaylord Texan for my sister's Bachelorette Party. We were definately wanting a relaxing, spa weekend. When I stumbled upon the Girls Getaway package on the Gaylord website, I knew that was exactly what we were looking for. The package includes free valet, a cheese platter and chocolate martini bar in your room, 20% spa services, 2 free appetizers at a restuarant, free breakfast at the Riverwalk Cantina, and other perks.
We absolutely enjoyed the spa. They ordered our lunch and had it delivered to the spa in between our treatments, and they gave a complimentary glass of wine. The therapists were friendly, but they left you alone and let you relax. The slumber room was a peaceful place to rest, if interested.
We also enjoyed the Paradise Springs lazy river. It wasn't too crowded with families. We grabbed some adult beverages and floated for an hour or so. The lazy river is fairly small, but we didn't care.
One of our favorite parts of the package was the chocolate martini bar and cheese platter that was delivered to our room. It came with 2 nice size cheese platters, 2 plates of crackers, 2 small bottles of vodka, and 4 miniature godiva bottles... plus, a shaker and bucket of ice. It was the perfect snack after the spa and pool, and a good pre-dinner appetizer.
Free breakfast at the Riverwalk Cantina was also a nice ending to the stay.
If you want a girls night away (and you want a spa day), get this package! Totally fun and worth it!
(We also got the Traditional Atrium View. I wouldn't pay for much else unless you are spending a lot more time in the room because this was a great room. This room was very spacious, and had a good view of the cool atrium).
