Maybe I’m biased but I think the spa is really the crown jewel of this place. A golf nut might take issue. Of course, they have the typical overpriced services you’d find at any spa, but the setting is gorgeous, and any service gives you access to the delicious salt-water pool and jacuzzi, and if you’re lucky the cabanas. The gym is also located at this premises, and is pretty well equipped as hotel gyms go. There’s also a bar and spa menu so you can swim, bake to a crispy biscuit, and eat to your heart’s content. Here’s a tip: if you don’t want to drop the dough for a kiwi strawberry exfoliating oxygenating rejuvenating antiaging facial, $40 gets you an all-day pass. But if you do opt for a spa service, you’re in for a treat. They exclusively use Eminence Organics, a ridiculously high-priced-yet effective skin care line, and while I’m a die-hard cheerleader of Innovative Skincare, I did pick up their Almond and Mineral Exfoliator, which I really like.
You’d think all this would cost a fortune, and while it’s not cheap, I’ve stayed at more expensive places with a lot less to offer. This is truly an all-inclusive resort, and for two days we never left the property with no shortage of things to do. You can book a stay with the “Kids Rule, Parents Drool” package starting at $219 per night. Not a bad deal as resorts go.
