Number one, this is an adult only resort, which was great. No screaming kids and everyone seemed relaxed and enjoyed their time here.
Second, the staff seemed genuinely concerned about service at this resort and went out of the way to ensure it was top notch. Specifically, Wendy was an outstanding server in the restaurant. By the third day, we requested to sit only where she was serving tables. On the hikes, we really had a great time with Kerry, but be careful! She wants you to sign up for the endurance hike, so she can punish you...
Truly, the guides seem to know just how to work with the group to get them through hikes making it enjoyalble for all levels of ability. The puppy hike was neat, but don't expect it to be a hike. It's about a mile walk with the dogs, which was great, but not a hike. Also, if the shelter doesn't have enough dogs, all may not get a dog to walk.
If you want the best experience, spend a little extra and book a villa. These are awesome rooms, and the views are super. Such a peaceful and relaxing few days, enjoy it! We visited the spa, and we would do more next visit. One woman on our puppy walk said that she was surprised at the spa massages. She said that she now realizes how bad all of the massages she had in the past have been.... Not much better testimony than that. Ours were great.
The food at the resort is mostly healthy. If you want to eat unhealthy, it is there, too. Dinner meals were awesome. The breakfast and lunch are served buffet style, which works great to get everyone to their respective hikes and classes. Cooking classes are short and to the point, so you won't waste a lot of time there. But, you will get the idea.
Enjoy the food, fitness, and relaxation!
