We stayed in the Paradise Swimming Pool Suite recently. There were pros and cons in our experience:
--This facility is set up to be a "romantic getaway". There is "mood lighting" and other
nice features that you won't find in a hotel. (Massage chair, etc.)
--Having the option for a suite with a swimming pool is nice. Much better than having
to share a pool with others at a hotel.
--Dual sinks and the steam room are a nice touch.
--The staff was helpful and friendly, both at check-in and check-out.
--Sybaris is not exactly for the budget-minded. While it is a unique experience, it is
rather pricey. Our suite was $375 for a Saturday night stay. (We went here only
because of a gift certificate I received as a gift. We had an ENTIRE CABIN in
Gatlinburg, TN - with a pool - at a nightly rate less than this suite.) I would probably
not pay full-price to stay here. (Besides the fact that they require a MEMBERSHIP,
which needs to be renewed yearly.)
--For this price, there should be a more comfortable bed. The bed was reasonably
soft, but there's not much cushioning. We did not have a very good night's sleep.
The pillows were very flat, and did not provide much support.
--The TV remote and operation leaves much to be desired. The remote did not work
unless pointed directly at the sensor on the TV. It was nearly impossible to
change any options on the TV, such as closed-captioning (I'm hard-of-hearing).
--I received at least two e-mails about "upgrade" options prior to our stay. These
upgrades (chocolate-covered strawberries, rose petals, etc) are extremely
--Despite what the brochure said, our suite included a jacuzzi instead of a
whirlpool/hot-tub. The difference is that you have to climb over the 3-foot-tall side
of the jacuzzi in order to use it. There is no ladder or step stool provided. We were
not able to use this feature, because it was literally impossible to enter this jacuzzi
without a ladder or step stool.
Overall, while this is a unique type of resort, I believe that some upgrades (the bed, pillows, TV's, etc) should be made to make this facility more user-friendly. For the cost of a stay here, there should be a more welcoming environment.
