We snapped up the Groupon for our stay, and had some friends do the same so we could spend a weekend together. It was lovely. The room was a good size, comfortable bed, good A/C, nice bathroom. We spent an afternoon in the pool and I loved being able to order drinks to the pool without it being obtrusive waiters coming around every 5 minutes. It was a busy pool day, but we still found some quiet and shaded space. We dined at Amuse and very much enjoyed it. Everything but the "air", which isn't my thing. I would have liked more public bench spaces outside. We had trouble finding a place to hang out together that wasn't in the restaurant or the lobby. In the end, we grabbed some sofas in the lobby, but it was a perfect night to sit outside, and there wasn't anywhere to go. An oversight for such a nice property.
The next night, after our friends went to bed early, we enjoyed the hot tub, the indoor pool (it was raining) and then got dessert from the case in the lobby (awesome thing!) and then retired to our room. It was a great vacation spot, and we would definitely return.
